About the Author
Since I was very young, I had the urge to entertain other people and make them laugh. It wasn't until recently, though, that people actually started telling me that my stories made them laugh--in a good way.
I love writing funny, entertaining tales about quirky, sometimesstrange people. The small towns I've lived in have been a good sourceof inspiration for individuals who just don't fit in the "normal"category. I seem to notice a lot of the marginal types--the quirkyindividuals that others don't see--and I love using some of their traitsas inspiration for my characters.
Over the years, I've toyed with the idea of studying stand-up comedy, or even clowning, but I'm basically a shy introvert wholoves working from the privacy of my own home.
I grew up around kinfolks who had a quirky sense of humor, and Iguess I inherited it. Put that together with all the Alfred Hitchcock,Twilight Zone and cop TV shows I grew up with, and a little bit ofmayhem and murder creeps into the mix. The nicest compliment I got onone of my stories was that it's "Hitchcockian."
Things in the world are tough enough these days and the bad guysdon't always get their comeuppance. Writing is hard work, but if one ofmy stories distracts people from their problems for even just an hour,then it's all worth it to me.
