I make my home with my beautiful wife and family in a suburb of Los Angeles, among a cluttered collection of too-big, cookie-cutter structures.
Here I rest each night after a long (and somewhat miserable) commute from the glass monoliths of Century City through the lowlands, cloistered away from the multi-hued grid of American culture, pretending that I am above it all.
Currently, I run this little blog, ply a trade as an executive in a financial services firm and muddle along as a wannabe author. I’m just having fun!!!!
Yet, in my life I have donned many uniforms. I have been:

Amy Joy wanted to be Santa Claus when she grew up. Not realizing until much later that she would never grow a beard, she set out to make people happy. But she noticed early on that life and the world we live in is quite a complicated thing, so she began writing to make sense of it all. Her first book, THE ACADEMIE, attempts to deal with some of serious issues of life, while revealing that true love is more than just the stuff of fairytales and love really can conquer all. Most of her current work(s)-in-progress deal with similar themes, though some deal in just plain silliness--because life is no fun without it.

Hey there. My name is J.E. Tobal. I'm a drunk, a writer, a cynic, an idiot, and I probably don't like you.
I was born and raised in South Florida. Many people would argue that this has ruined me for life. I left as soon was I able and came to New York City where I attended NYU and received a degree in English. It's a smidge colder here, but there's also a lot less alligators and deadly snakes. I'm fine with this.
I began writing for the first time around 2005. Previous to that, I had always been interested in mathematics, engineering, computer programming, and graphic design (truth). I've written numerous stories over the years, both short and long. I began writing "A Kind of Drug" - my first, proper, long-fo ... read more

Mary Barr sees storytelling as an art. Each completed story is a piece of life born from words onto the page. A true storyteller and then a writer, she sees the storyline in its entirety before she begins to write. She shares all the twists and turns which continue to whet the reader’s appetite through to the unexpected ending. It’s not about spelling, vocabulary or grammar, although important, these things alone will never make a good story. Instead, Mary Barr’s readers experience the drama, suspense and intrigue of a captivating plot, with characters who often appear larger than life. Maybe we can relate to the good in each of them or the bad. Do we share their character flaws? Have we experienced simil ... read more

The first Compiled Writings by Christina were gathered and stapled together when I was ten years old. Those terribly written, yet funny to read, short stories often held some resemblance to my life growing up on a 39 acre farm in Williamsburg, OH, a small town east of Cincinnati. There were horses, cows, pigs, dogs, cats—okay, a zoo—which included three older brothers.
I left this wonderful life behind at eighteen to pursue a degree in Journalism and then a career in Marketing. After ten years of living in the city, I moved back to Williamsburg and bought those same 39 acres I grew up on. I eventually married my best friend, Jack, and allowed him and his son to move in with me, my two dogs and two horses. ... read more
