Las Cruces author Jim Lindberg

Today I submitted a short profile to Southwest Senior, about local author Jim Lindberg. This gentleman has done a lot--earned a degree in physics, built rockets at White Sands, studied the atmosphere for the Army, took up gemology as a hobby, bought gems for cash from Mexican miners, earned a private pilot's license, worked as a police officer for ten years, once had dinner in Brazil with a woman who identified herself as Hitler's photographer, and has written two books. He is a member of Mesilla Valley Writers here in Las Cruces, and says he never has writer's block or runs out of ideas.

Whew. I'm tired just thinking about it all.

Here is a link to his two books: http://www.llumina.com/store/ShortStories.htm

Sounds like he's simply too busy for writer's block to move in! I guess I should try that approach for getting rid of my writer's block:)

I love doing profiles... you meet some interesting people, and it sounds like this man is. Busy mind=no writer's block.
