I began to write down non-fiction. My early books embrace "The Reminder E book of the Scholar" and "Outrageous Squirrels". I had extra concepts than I might write, so I started to pack books: I'd write the proposal, then discover a author and writer and put the 2 collectively. It was enjoyable to develop e-book concepts.

Sadly, as an agent, I had little time to write down. Now I don't do any extra brokers, so my time is mine. And though I've a small e-book writer, Claren Books, I can spend a number of time writing.
