About JeffreyBrown
Joined November 2017
Hello everyone, my name is Jeff and I am originally from Dallas, Texas, though I have lived in Kansas for the last 33 years. I am a 53 year old married man with seven children and two grandchildren. I am a Christian, a United States Army veteran, and a locksmith in my town, which is Junction City, KS USA, home to Ft. Riley and the US Army's BIG RED ONE--First Infantry Division. After the Army, and while I was still attending Kansas State University, I started my own business here--it's called J & J Locksmith Service, and has been a successful going concern for the past 28 years.

I became a proud 1996 graduate of Kansas State University--GO WILDCATS--with degrees in Accounting, Management, and Finance, and a minor in Economics. The diploma certainly looks good on the wall, but since I already had my business started, I stuck with it, since I enjoyed being my OWN boss, and realized there was no turning back after that initial taste of success.

As I've gotten older, I found out I was a type two diabetic, after an infection in my right foot forced me to have all the toes and half the rest of it amputated in December of 2015, I have slowed down somewhat--even though I manage quite well without it. Since I was a kid I had always been writing stories in spiral notebooks, continuing in the army at times when I was on guard duty, etc., but after I finished school and got serious into my business, I found that I no longer had time for it. After the operation, while waiting to heal enough to get back to work, I began writing again in earnest, and haven't stopped since. This prompted me to become a self-published author, having now written 6 historical science-fiction novels (These were combined from 12 of 17 that I've written into longer books which seem to be selling better) under the name J. Lynn Brown--which is my first initial and my full middle and last name. I do this to differentiate myself from a prolific author with many works by the same given name as mine so that I might also stand out.

The novels start at the end of the American Civil War and follow a large group of Confederate refugees who flee the United States to search for a new place to call home after the defeat of the Confederacy. During their voyage, they get hopelessly lost in the Bermuda Triangle ending up in another magical place with some interesting fantasy creatures and other characters, with a little magic and everyday life mixed in for good measure. The novels are part of a series called Bermuda's Secret (The very first one of which is called Bermuda's Secret). I have placed them on the Amazon Kindle Platform (Kindle Direct Publishing). I currently have FIVE published on Amazon right now, with many more in the works. If anyone is interested you can go to Amazon, and search using the keywords Bermuda's Secret Magical. This should bring up my novels, which average between 2-400 pages each. If anyone chooses to read them I would appreciate a review--good or bad, I NEED the criticism or praise to let me know how I am doing. The current titles are BERMUDA'S SECRET, TERAMISSIAN CONFEDERATION, RUKAANIAN EMPIRE, WARFARE on the ISLAND, DESPERATE DEFENSE, and RUKAANIAN RESURGENCE. There is still another that I'm working on called SPRING INVASION which hopefully will be ready by the end of 2020. I also managed to release a small dystopian satirical book about Municipal Government Run Amok called THE COUNTY. Best of all, you can also read them for free if you're an Amazon Prime member (I think only in the US and possibly the UK). If you aren't a prime member, they are all reasonably priced, $7.99 or less depending on if they're on sale, AND AGAIN, I COULD CERTAINLY USE THE REVIEWS.

Wealthy Affiliate will eventually be VERY instrumental in my marketing plan for these serial novels, and other books that I'm working on--I already have domain names purchased and a few websites for my books and other niches, but I'm just reading and learning here for right now, though I'll eventually get all those sites up and running a lot better than they are now. (I know--procrastination!)

During my locksmith career and my budding writing career, I've also been a long-time avid eBay store owner (since 2002), and that takes up a lot of my extra time as well My user id is texasnational, and my store is called Tex's Surplus and collectibles. Even though I sound pretty busy, I believe that having these three income sources will pan-out in the long-run. I have never been one to place all my eggs in one basket, since usually at least one avenue is generating income for me, if there is a down-turn in any of the others. Occasionally, they all three kick in, though not often...YET!

I ALSO HAVE A YOUTUBE CHANNEL-- YOU CAN FIND IT HERE:

UCchzBR6G0GU-aKjaIEkkT7A

As I said before, this WA platform is just what I'm looking for to enhance my different interests with the use of the websites since the internet is the way for the future, and the education, coupled with the vibrant and helpful community here is out of this world, so I figured why not? The people here are genuine and pretty cool. Besides, this could be the platform that finally ties everything else together for me and helps it all run smoother! Best SUCCESS to everyone who joins--for the cost, in my opinion, it is money well spent--you couldn't even pay for one decent half-semester college class for the annual WA dues! It truly is a University of Opportunity, Wealth, and knowledge for those who apply themselves!!

A very good story you have. I am a starter, and I understand your health concerns, because I had mine. As a new member I am founding many interesting topics that I never had in consideration. I myself love sci-fi, and fantasy, and for sure will take a look at your books. Thanks a lot!!

I'll use this platform eventually to promote my books, but I've been revamping them to make them better. Choose something you're passionate about as a niche, follow the training, and be patient and you'll be fine!

Thanks for following me, Jeff. I have of course returned the compliment.

What an awsome full life you have lead Jeff! Sorry to hear about the health issues but it seems like you've picked yourself up dusted yourself down and adapted accordingly. I was left wondering where you got all the time from for all you have achieved! In fact, I felt worn out for you by the time I got to the end, only joking of course :-)

Anyway, with your experience, this venture should be a walk in the park for you.

All the best.

Thanks for the kind sentiments, Rob. Being self employed, I guess helps to find some of the time. Best success to you here in WA!!

Firstly thank you for the following and for your service. Your military service is greatly appreciated as it helps to keep our constitution rights and our freedom. I also niticed that you have your own lock smithing service, which I myself have looked into but buying tools and certification is a no go for me. Lol thats is why I joined WA.

Thank you for the kind sentiments, and you should do well in WA!! As for the locksmithing, it is expensive, but I've downsized and only do residential and commercial locks and unlocks!
