Should I write a book?

If so, should it be be fiction or non fiction? Give me some characters and story lines please, maybe even write a few paragraphs or chapters to get me started.

Opening paragraph might read:

Although Tom Stormcrowe was a seasoned Postal Inspector and part time internet forums guru, nothing in his experience in either field had prepared him for what was in the package lying on the stainless steel table before him. The postmarks were from every corner of the country, up state New York to Carlsbad, California, the contents had spread across the country like a plague from deep in the cold, dark heart of Texas. Tom knew that he had to open the package, he wished that he had a bit more faith in the integrity of the haz-mat suit that was supplied by agents from Homeland Security that he had called in to help with the grim task at hand.

I thought all books had to start with "It was a dark and stormy night." No?

It was a dark and stormy night when I was born in my father's house, the third of 5 basset hound pups.
I was the one with one long ear and one short.
