It's a big, wide, wonderful world and how wonderful to have a place like Wattpad  to share our words and literary wares!

Myself, I've received awards for poetry & fiction & I've been published in small editions. I've studied English Composition, Literature, Creative Writing and Poetry. But the bulk & most important part of any writer's education, including  my own, is reading.  I read a lot.

I'm proudest of my fiction & lately, some of my Limericks which seem to be attracting attention. 

My greatest joy, other than my family & friends & the natural world (not necessarily in that order),  is making people laugh.

I vary my work - I don't write in any one genre - or about any one time period.
With over 15 short stories, a complete mystery novella, 2 serials, 24 poetry groups (including said Limericks), & 4 or 5 non-fiction essay/articles - I do hope you can find something to your liking : )
Available on Amazon, but the lovely @lwallacekurtz, has given you a taste here, of 2: The Priest And the Werewolf ...and Within Werewolves. 

My good friend and superb writer @jjwest - has an incredible new story you will love called Apache Break-out. Story, characterization, description & dialogue are perfect. You're going to love the grizzled character. Sam. Enjoy :)).

A wonderful read, "The Wake," (the hardcopy yea!) by @ColmHerron,  is now available on Amazon. I just ordered mine! : ) Here's the link:

Joy...hugs, & hang in there, gang.

One of the ways I promoted Wattpad - was that unlike Facebook and other sites, WP offered a copyright option, which insured that our work was protected.
I no longer see that option so let me just say:
All work on my site, unless otherwise noted or quoted, is original, written by me and is hereby copyrighted.
