I feel I must begin with an apology, but not an apology for the cities I have razed, the men I have killed, or the children I have left fatherless. No those things, while they weight heavy on my mind some nights, needed to be done. This apology is to you: the potential reader, I apologize because I have lived an incredible life and wish to tell you this amazing story but sadly I lack the skills to do it justice. My writings in the past were hurried notes to battlefield commanders, orders to underlings, perhaps a note to an old friend, and an occasional letters professing my love to a woman of incredible beauty and character who I had the fortune to know and love. I am not a wordsmith; I lack the prose of a poet, the rhythm of a bard, and the smooth continuity of a novelist. As I have gotten older my stories take a meandering jaunt that jumps from one event to the next. In my mind these stories are crystal clear and make perfect sense, but I fear my listeners are often left scratching their heads and looking for a polite way to exit the room, and trust me it is no easy feat to excuse yourself from a rambling Emperor. So it is with a good deal of trepidation that I put these words to paper to tell a tale that should not be left to legend and speculation. Already I hear deeds and stories attributed to me that make me sound like a god on earth. Some consider me a savior, others a devil. Neither is the case; I am merely a man who continually tried to make the best out of the situations I found myself in. Sometimes I failed; many times I succeeded beyond my wildest dreams. It is these successes that have bought me the throne I now sit in, but it is the failures that taught me the most. Fate has been exceedingly kind to me and on occasion remarkably cruel. I in turn have been the same. As you can see I wandered a bit from my apology here. This marks the fifth attempt I have made to put my story to paper and I lack the energy to try again if I fail this time. I hope that you walk away from these pages with a better understanding of me and the empire I have built and the man who built it. I have consulted the best writers I could find and all tell me to simply start at the beginning. So with an apology for my less then skillful scribbling, I give you the autobiography of... Emperor Croesus Black

From the Author:

Simply thank you for the time and consideration of viewing my book.

About the Author:

Born in New Jersey in the 70s I enjoyed my youth on the Jersey Shore. I changed pace in my late teens/early twenties to attend WVU and loved the mountains of West Virginia (and the beer of Morgantown). 

After graduating WVU in 1995 I again changed gears and found myself in NYC. I love the city as much as I did the mountains and the shore. I have come to find every area of this world has its own beauty and lessons to impart.

I truly enjoy writing (I always have), my seventh grade teacher told me my writing style was awful. Who knows maybe she was right, but it hasn't stopped me from trying to prove her wrong.

I am blessed with a beautiful and supportive wife, a remarkably bright and athletic three year old son (no idea where those skills come from), a fluffy kitty and a gassy dog. The last one is not such a blessing.
