I am a writer. Not a famous one, nor maybe even a good one. But it’s what I do. I’ve been writing since I was 9, and I’ve managed to make a career out of writing. I expect that I will continue to write until I no longer can. Hopefully, that will be on the day that I die, because I can’t imagine having things to write that I am unable to put down.
I’ve collected various writings here for those who wander by to enjoy. Some are categorized — one might call those categories “books” — while others are little more than scattered leaves on the wind. I hope you enjoy them. Please share them if you do, though I ask that you don’t copy or distribute them. Simply point others back to where you found them, here, so that they might discover other things I have written and enjoy them as well.
Stories have long been my passion. I like the way stories tell truths through lies. I tend to be all over the place with stories that I’ve written — science fiction, fantasy, romance, mundane. If a story seems good to me, I will do my best to tell it.
I go through phases with my poetry. Structured and rhyming poems are frowned upon by many writers today, but I toy with it from time to time. I also like trying to capture the rhythm of vers libre.
