The history of one writer....

From a very early age, I was excited about writing....Poems, Songs, Short Stories, which eventually became novels. I believe perhaps it may have been due to the fact that I was born a "Pisces". That bestowed upon me an amazing gift: a creative, imaginative mind, which some days literally raged. The message was clear.. "Write, compose, sing, memorize and do not be afraid to say what's on your mind!" And so, I began in Elementary school, singing in the Junior choir and practising guitar. And in junior High singing with the school choir, then accompanying my very talented older brother, providing rythim guitar and harmony to many a Beatles tune. And of course, aspiring to very soon, organize my own rock band. Then, on to High School where I sang with the high school choir, began writing poetry and put together my first four-piece rock band. I played bass guitar and did back vocals, performing at all the school functions. And finally through my adulthood, writing, singing, memorizung like crazy, putting together several pretty decent musical groups. Unfortunately though, I did not keep all my compositions and some that I did save were destroyed in the Kelowna, B.C. fire in 2003. But I started over and well, here is the result... {Pen Name ~ Lance North}
