I am an unemployed architect. My future, which suits me just fine, will be that of a substitute school teacher, advanced guitarist and instructor of guitar, Volvo restorer and conspiracy theorist. And novelist. Right now, my penchant seems to be short little novels, novellas I guess they are. This is making me quite prolific. I might be in error. Maybe harder work on longer novels is best. I would be delighted to have any feedback on my works. Most of all, please read "The Undergrad" also available at Smashwords.

I bet there's a whole contingent of people who, like Mark Fitzgerald, author of "I Am John Galt." studied and adored Ayn Rand at some younger age, learned how to "check your premises," and then realized she was a right-wing lunatic--and became lefties. I am one of these people myself. Unlike Mark Fitzgerald, though, I'd never dream of writing a book titled "I am John Galt" (one of Rand's characters). The book is a fast read, and the reader gets drawn in and wants to know what will happen, so in that sense it's worth a look. But not much is new or revelatory here and it's marred by too many typo's or misspellings and errors. Still, this is what we're going to get with our new REAL freedom of speech, and it's a good thing. I sort of recommend "I Am John Galt," especially to lefties who at one time rode Ayn Rand's rickety bandwagon. --Marcy Sheiner
