Book Description

I decided to put together my short story collection [The Inn of Life A Short Story Collection] I have been writing this collection over twenty years. What was interesting that I wrote most of my stories while on vacation in the same Inn. It was fun and getting published was even better. The old, the young and in between, mix like any stew for what is seen as life within the Inn. The psychology of working with people creates opportunity for lifestyle embellishments in the world of fiction that includes many forms, science fiction, and mystery are but an example. At the same time, this allows the resource of the mind to look beyond the stars for tomorrow’s future. There are no limits, be it above earth or below the sky and even underneath the blue waters. Drawing from history, photography, music, or even the sciences guide the interests that become captivating. This moves the person into that facade. Current events turn into history that guides the future by allowing the thought process to move into the next stage. Creating concepts of what the mind’s eye sees is what a writer’s life replicates. Every stop, every thought, leads the intellect to continue.
Technology with imagination completes the cycle of a writer; this evaluation has grown through many years of put words into a deep desire. Writing is never a lonely art form if you allow it to enchant what your perception offers. My rules in the creative process have increased through time similar to vintage wine. There a good years and there are acceptable years, but the strength is always moving forward. This never stops until there is no path of air running through the body and spirit. I like to phrase Joseph Conrad. Illusion: “Words, as is well known, are great foes of reality.”
