Now a twice Wattpad featured author (and you thought they had standards around here).

As an avid reader and an aspiring writer, I love being part of a community of several million like-minded people.

I suspect most of us have a pretty decent book (or two) inside of us, the challenge obviously is getting it out. Well, and then getting somebody to read it. But anyway, one challenge at a time.

"The Four Baristas of the Apocalypse" is my primary project/challenge, and is the story that the Wattpad pixies, in their infinite wisdom (and obvious good taste), decided to feature (twice). It's nearing completion, and I've also recently finished the "The Blade", which was my first foray into fantasy and wound up as a finalist in the Open Novella Contest.

One of the main reasons I started writing on Wattpad was to see whether I could actually complete a novel, and I have to say that I'm a little gobsmacked that it's actually happened.

With a few exceptions, my stories generally don't take themselves too seriously (real life contains more than enough serious stuff). If you're interested, some shorter samples can be found here: -

Chapter 44.  Just a short one, as I've been low on time this week.  Hope you're all having a good weekend.
