What it’s all about
This section of cyberspace is about writing, mostly mine and mostly fiction. There are short stories you can read for free, if you require entertainment of dubious quality. These stories are by me and a few other people, and are accessible via the menus below.
The tabs at the top of this page will open doorways into other areas. There’s a page about the short fiction posted here and elsewhere, and one shamelessly advertising the novels I have published. Another page is devoted to the non-fiction stuff I’ve churned out over the years. In addition there is a page of various ravings and ramblings about creative writing, a page on my Yellow Room stories, and a page on which I will be posting short pieces on non-literary matters that concern me one way or another.
Finally there is a page that tells you a little something about yours truly, not that it’ll be of any interest to anyone but the most die-hard and deluded stalker.
I hope you enjoy this site and continue to check in occasionally to see what’s new. If you want to contact me just use the form on the About Me page.
