About

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 try to vary my reading and read not only a vast assortment of books, but of writers, too. I read classics but I'm not a book snob. These days I'm reading much more fiction than non-fiction, I seem to find more truth within. 

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, and spiritual beliefs  (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, the lovely @lwallacekurtzbut, 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:
