Background Information

I write because I grew up watching my mother with a book in her hand anytime she had a free moment from taking care of me and my family.  Even as a small child, I remember feeling there was something in those books she was looking at all the time.  After I learned to read, I found out the world was in there and I wanted to be a part of it.  I wrote stories at an early age, but didn't get serious about my writing until after I became an adult.  Some of my stories include Raymond Doesn't Remember, Dreams Still On You, and Maxwell: The Last Vampire, all from Eternal Press. 

My writing is influenced most by writer like Robert Bloch, Harlan Ellison, Charles Beaumount, Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, William Tenn, Joe R. Landsdale, and Isaac Asimov.

I like short stories more than novels, and I love good collections and anthologies.  There are short stories I have read  decades ago and they still stick in my mind as if it was yesterday:

Mrs. Dodd's Shortcut  and Uncle Otto's Truck - by - Stephen King

Wednesday's Child - by - William Tenn

Tight Little Stitches On A Dead Man's Back - by - Joe R. Landsdale

Shattered Like a Glass Goblin -by - Harlan Ellison, who would have to be my favorite short story writer.  I wish I was half as creative as he is.....

Birth Place
Fort Wayne, IN US
Accomplishments

I have never entered a story in anything, lol. Not sure what that says about me.
