Merchant of Death retired. I was raised in El Nido, California. I grew up on a dairy farm, where I received my black belt in the ancient art of Portuguese Shovel Fighting, because nothing motivates a Holstein to move its fat ass into the milk barn like a good shovel on the snout.
El Nido was a tiny little town, where the cows far outnumbered the people. Looking back, I suppose I would describe myself as a geeky, fat kid. So rather than play a lot of sports, I preferred to read books. I was that one kid that always had a book in my hands and was usually reading at recess instead of actually doing stuff.
It was my mom that installed a love of reading in me. My dad considered reading fiction a complete waste of time, since reading time should be devoted to information related to important things, like cows or tractors. But I was a voracious reader. I read everything I could find.
El Nido had a tiny library, and by the time I was about twelve I had read everything there. Two hours on the school bus everyday gives you plenty of extra reading time. I kept one of his index pages and checked off every book as I read it. Eventually I got them all. There was just something heroic about those that caught my imagination.

I even illustrated them with dragons and swords and lots of explosions, because why the hell not? The other kids loved them, and suddenly I discovered that I was good at making crap up to entertain people.
It would be another twenty-five years before I discovered that I could actually make money at it.[Updated 20th June ] Most inspiring Facebook profile quotes, funny and creative Facebook bio Status, short about me posts and awesome intro quotes for your Facebook profile.
