Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This is long-awaited (by me) start to fiction from memoir. Blogging and a local writers group helped inspire and assemble this collection of stories. At the end of it, you'll find a preview of one of many upcoming novels. Once the writing spigot opens, the words will flow.
For those old enough to read Carlos Castaneda or watch the Twilight Zone (perhaps in syndication) they will be reminded of both reading the first story, The Fountain.
The Closet Door recalls a few trips to Maine and many rental units here and there with odd bathrooms.
If you've ever lived with a Golden Retriever, you know about their personalities. The rest of Lily, an Amazing Dog is all from the memories of countless stories read.
Alfred, if you or anyone you know has lactose intolerance issues, you can guess where this comes from.
Countless trips to the Outer Banks, especially to the towns along Hatteras Island provided the backdrop to The Flame. You can guess the source of the story itself.
If you're interested in sci-fi, you must have seen those early episodes of Star Trek at one time or another. So you know where The Fribble comes from. But it's not much like the trouble with Tribbles. It's more like Nat Geo meets a disaffected company man with some strange results.

About the Author

He wrote his first story in second grade. Many more followed throughout high school and college. But growing up poor made the thought of being a starving writer kept him away from completing that childhood dream. But that's what retirement is for--the Third Age
Sure, he did some creative writing as a government budget analyst while working for local government. What, you don't know how budget requests are written? Yes, there's more to budget documents than financial analyses. He also wrote plenty of consumer education materials. But what he's writing now is more fun. 
He relocated from the busy environs of suburban Northern Virginia to a scenic small town in southwestern New Mexico. Yes, it's NEW Mexico--part of the US. High atop a hill he can see for miles as he writes the stories you can read here on Amazon.
