Nah. However, you have to be published before you can claim to be an author (sez me). And re: Angelo Bottigliero - Everyone, let's all remember that Uncle Steve already wrote and that it was already pretty much what he was about - and he had one hell of a lot of support from his (very) good lady. Every hand dealt is different. But, Angelo, if you ever do get around to writing something, don't keep quiet about it, and good luck.
