I'm a shy, reserved author living in Canada, Thunder Bay, Ontario specifically. I was born and raised here. I enjoy the outdoors, particularly in the summer, whether it be camping, walking, etc. I'm self-employed and work at home. I'm an award-winning volunteer with The United Way locally. My publishing credits read like a short book in themselves. My favourite genre in writing is poetry, I've been writing since 2001, part-time mind you, given my disability (depression/anxiety). I'm still single with no children, marriage is the furthest thing from my mind right now. I'll turn 40 next year!!!!
In describing my medical history, I was hospitalized for 6 weeks following a car accident way back in 1980 or 1981, for whatever reason, I didn't look both ways before crossing a street on my way home from school one day, one mistake is all it takes. I suffered a broken leg in the accident (my right leg), and the rest as they say is history. I had to finish that school year in the hospital. Also, when I was a kid, I came in the side door at home, slipped and fell down the stairs, I had to go to the nearby hospital again to get stitches on top of my head, thankfully, I had no other injuries as I recall. In 1985, depression set in upon my family moving away from our neighbourhood, that was a tough time for me, as I was in Grade 6, about to reach puberty nearing my teen years, and having been bullied as well. It was rough to start all over again anew at school, etc. following our move. Major depression set in for me in Grade 11, I just couldn't handle high school and the daily grind any longer, so I dropped out. I was able to complete the requirements for my high school diploma by and in 2000. I wasn't the traditional high school student nor graduate, my social skills were always modest at best. I've taken a couple of semesters in college (office admin.), and no university, for personal reasons. I think writing is my niche in life, so it seems, I published my first book back in December of 2011. As far as sales/royalties go for my book, no definitive numbers as of yet. I still live in an apartment, I don't drive, rarely drink alcohol nor do non-prescription drugs; I still take meds daily for depression and for a couple of physical conditions, not serious thankfully, as depression can be. I carry on as best I can regardless. www.marcmullo.com
