So, Who the Hell is Tom Darby?

During some boring-ass webinar, the speaker said the ‘About’ page is the single most important post on any website. He added, “The first sentence must grab your customer by the throat.”

Here goes: “The wolf never needs to explain what he’s all about.”

No, you say. Doesn’t do anything for you, doesn’t explain who I am, what this website is about?

Well, fuck it then! Time to do it my way…

A Nevada Broadcast Association Hall-of-Fame radio personality and former news reporter, I was born in Chateauroux, France, raised in Klamath, California (not Klamath Falls, Oregon,) and I live in Spanish Springs, Nevada.

Oh — and I write as much as I can (which isn’t always pretty, but it is honest) — everyday. You should too!

There. All done.

    Oh crap! I’m supposed to write and “About” page?

    I’m screwed. I could just default to the Twitter profile I had for over ten years.

    “I’m just me.”

    Yup, that works.

    Being Authentic is a gift that has been given you! You know who you are. Fuck everything else. Makes getting older a lot more fun. Have you taught writing courses? 💙
