Re: RARA-AVIS: you're HOW old?

Hello, all.

>I'm curious about your ages and reading history.

   I'm twenty-five. I discovered I wanted to be a writer in high school, and discovered I had to read if I wanted to write in college. Robert Parker was my introduction to hard-boiled fiction. He wrote books the way I wanted to write.
   Since Parker I've played catch-up in the genre, reading Hammett, Chandler, Block, and Stark to name a few. I'm still idealistic enough to believe my name will be up there, and that's an ideal I don't plan to lose.
