TJ Edwards quit his job as a Retail Store Manager in Alberta, Canada and moved all the way to New South Wales, Australia to focus on his writing and personal life as of a few years ago. For the moment he currently works full time as a Retail Manager in the Illawarra. This is an entirely new volume in the Life of TJ Edwards, as he has been comfortable living in Canada for twenty-six years of his epic life.
Writing has been a passion of his since as far back as he can remember, starting with a pencil and paper, moving up to a typewriter and then eventually progressing to a computer. However his writing also took a back seat to many other things in his life such as school, eventually a job, romance and then socializing. The decline began when a hot water heater burst in his childhood home and ruined a hard copy of a chapter book he was working on. With no computer, and no back up, he 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 he had managed was before he’d left junior high, a seven chapter short story. Somewhere, that beast still exists, hopefully it never surfaces again!
After awhile the need to pay bills became priority number one and writing always took the back seat. TJ started up blog after blog, yet to no avail. The most he’d managed was a twenty-five page short story called “The Mediocre Assassin” about an everyday guy trying to get ahead in the world. While the assassin was good enough to be top ten material, he just never got the job that could put him in the limelight! Now TJ has relocated, refocused and now is perhaps the only time he has left to get back into writing… Although he’ll never stop. It is his dream and passion!
