Happy Birthday Neil Gaiman

Neil GaimanToday is the birthday of writer Neil Gaiman, born in Portchester, England in 1960.

Gaiman began his career as a comic book writer and in 1987 penned one of the best titles when he took a failed DC Comics character known as the Sandman, revamping the history and very being of the character, and turning it into an award-winning comic book.

He then went on to become a best-selling author of such novels as “American Gods”, “Anansi Boys”, “Neverwhere”, “The Graveyard Book” and “The Ocean at the End of the Lane”, among others.

 

About The Word Of Jeff

I'm a freelance writer and blogger who has written for, among others, Tribune Media Services, Suite101 and Athena Guides. As an intrepid traveler I have chronicled some of my travels at The Verbal Vagabond, my travel blog. And, being an avid amateur photographer, I also have a photography blog spotlighting photos I have taken of areas around my hometown at Postcards From Maggie Valley. Speaking of Maggie Valley, that is where my wife, our Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix, Bella, our Orange Tabby, Tigger and I live in a log cabin on a mountain in Western North Carolina, just at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I enjoy hiking, camping, art, travel, photography (as mentioned above), and an occasional glass of good wine while reading or writing in front of the fireplace.
