He had been good at spinning tales ever since he was a young boy. His younger sister would listen enthralled for hours on end as he made up stories of magical places and enchanted forests filled with birds and butterflies.
When he grew up, he joined the army. Despite such a macho career he yearned to make up stories. Unknown to his colleagues, he started writing fantasy fiction under a psuedonym. He soon started making a good income with this hobby. Yet he did not dare reveal this to his fellow servicemen for fear that they would make fun of him. It remained his silent secret.
