69-year-old disabled veteran I've had short stories published in The Birmingham Post and Senior Living.This is my first novel.

Background Information

My novel ("Christmas Angels) is being presented as a work of fiction but is pretty much my own life between the ages of 6-23 with all names changed to protect the guilty. I was influenced by Clarke Stallworth who was an author and also editor of the The Birmingham Post who published several of my short stories.He urged me to write a novel.You can google Clarke to find out more information on him. Sadly he passed away in 2008 and I lost a great friend who deeply influenced me.I was born in Alabama to a totally dysfunctional family.Moving from here to Ohio when I was 10-years-old and then to Hammond Indiana where I graduated from high school

and joined the Navy. My novel follows all of this. It's not a "feel good" or "lessons I learned at my grandfather's knee" book . I thought it would sell well to men but women seem to love it more. I had three different women read it. None knew the other two. One lives in Knoxville,one lives in Terrace,B.C. and the other in Barking,England. One said she laughed and cried all the way through it,one said she's tried to read other novels since and can't, and one wants me to start another book right away (which I don't have in me).My first love is art. I've been an avid reader most of my life starting with comic books at age 5. But it seems no one is interested in real literary fiction anymore. Crooks and politicians and criminals (pretty much the same) can get books published or you can write about a car that eats people and they call that literature.

Additional Information
