I'm glad I found this site (don't know how I missed it so long). I read all sorts of things, so I am looking forward to diving into MANY of these stories...

I also write. I recently had my second novel published, but most of my many years of writing have been in the non-fiction world. I have written a couple thousand (at least!) articles and features for newspapers, travel magazines, newsletters and even several comic books and a graphic novel. is a Website I set up in 2002:
FantasyReaders On Facebook:

Everything on the site is free: fantasy, sci-fi and horror stories, and even illustrated and interactive game books!

An excerpt of my latest (fantasy) novel can be read on Amazon, here:
(Available on iTunes and other Online retailers as well, of course!)

Recently Published Short Fiction (paperback):
Three short stories published in Zharmae's Ends Of Man contest as 2012 contest winners (entered three - was happily surprised they all were picked). There are quite a few very interesting stories in that one from writers all over the world ... check it out.   

(From Ends Of Man Anthology):
