Passionate writer, hard working, efficient, punctual, dependable, fast learning and quick to adapt: Just a few words to describe me! My name is TJ Edwards and I quit my job as a Retail Store Manager in Alberta, Canada and moved all the way to New South Wales, Australia to focus on my writing and personal life as of a few years ago. For the moment I am a sales manager at JB HI FI in the Illawarra. This is an entirely new volume in the Life of TJ Edwards, as I have been comfortable living in Canada for twenty-six years of my epic life.
Writing has been a passion of mine since as far back as I can remember, starting with a pencil and paper, moving up to a typewriter and then eventually progressing to a computer. However my writing also took a back seat to many other things in my life such as school, eventually a job, romance and then socializing. The decline began when a hot water heater burst in my room and ruined a hard copy of a chapter book I was working on, with no computer I lacked a digital copy. Three hundred and fifty written and typed pages turned into one foul-smelling, wet brick of broken dreams. After that the furthest I had managed was before I left junior high, a seven chapter short story. Somewhere, that beast still exists, however I hope it never surfaces again!
After awhile the need to pay bills became priority number one and writing always took the back seat. I started up blog after blog, yet to no avail. The most I managed was a twenty-five page short story called “The Mediocre Assassin” about an everyday guy trying to get ahead in the world. While he was good enough to be top ten material, he just never got the job that could put him in the limelight. Now I have relocated, refocused and now is perhaps the only time I have left to get back into writing… Although I’ll never stop. It is my dream and my passion!
