In the Beginning

If you are reading this, welcome!  My first attempt at blogging will be short and to the point.
I write.  That's what I do.  And I play on the computer.  Then I write some more, then I feed the pets, then I write some more.  And afterward, I read . . . anything and everything.  I like YA, and I like mainstream, and I really like Stephen King, usually.  But I also like thrillers and mysteries and fantasy and sometimes even a smattering of science fiction.  I'm not picky.  If it's well written, I will read it.  But if it doesn't grab me by the throat and threaten to drown me in an ocean of envy within the first few pages--I put it down.  Life is too short to read bad fiction.  I try to keep that in mind when I'm writing, too.

So there.  That's me in a nutshell, and I do mean in a nutshell.  Certifiable, maybe.  Or perhaps just a bit squirrely.  You be the judge.  Personally, I don't worry about it too much.  I'm just me . . . I yam what I yam as Popeye would say.  But thanks for dropping by.   Watch for an upcoming story to be serialized here next time.  It's one of my own (natch) and it's a bit of a horror show.  Hope you like it.  If you do, you might want to check out my YA Novella coming out this month from Cool Well Press.  It's called The Phantom Pilot.  It will be available at and  Or you can simply pop over to my website and order it there!

Once I figure out this blogging business, you will probably even be able to order it here.  Anything's possible, right?

PS (afterthought) Feel free to leave me a note or a comment or whatever you would like to call it.  I'd love to hear from you.
