Marc S. Kruza

Having graduated from

Florida State with degrees

in Computer Science and

Music Composition, my interests

range from writing novels to writing

computer programs, and from singing in

church to playing in a local rock band. I

love beaches, mountains, surfing

and hiking, and writing about

them. I'd love to find a way

to put my talents to work

for you!
