Derrick Philip Begin


I am a busy Dad, indie author and primary provider for two young boys and a girl (in the middle) living in New York, New York.

Born and raised near an overgrown baseball field in Portland, Maine. I am an avid reader, lately mostly technical manuals, and love nature despite riding the day-to-day pulse of New York City (A dynamic and different type of nature). My love of literature and desire to escape from technical jargon inspires me to write my own stories.
