Okay, I'll take a moment away from production to say hello....
I'm Matt. I am married and have four children (Matt , Jessica , Christopher , Sara . Our family website with some great reptile and pictures of AZ can be viewed here: http://www.cbtoolkit.com/MoranClan
I am a business & technology consultant. Sold my company in 2001 and became part of a larger organization. I walked away after 7 months. I had a dream where I watched my family die. I woke up and tried to tell my wife but she thought I was getting frisky and sent me away :cry:
I sat down and wrote an analysis of my life - rambling thoughts - and at the end determined I was not pursuing that thing that I had promised myself I would do from the time I was 7 - writing.
I left the company and equity behind. I wrote and sold several magazine articles on technology, business development, and professional (career) development. In that time I wrote a career manual for I.T. professionals - which I self-published as a workbook and then a more comprehensive book.
Three months ago it was purchased by an editor as Cisco Press and now I have my first publishing contract with advance :D and am frantically refining, rewriting, and adding content.
My second book, which started before the first, is a parental perspective on hyperactivity. Recently, it was referred to a literary agency who are reviewing a synopsis of it. Crossing my fingers on this one.
Once these two books are completed, I am starting a mystery loosely built on aspects of my grandmother's life - dropped at orphanage with a name, adopted by wealthy family - never accepted but financially cared for, hints of being fathered by a very-well connected politician in the early 1900's. We will see......
