About Ernest Winchester

I began spinning yarns at a young age, regaling my audience (my long suffering mother) each afternoon with tall tales of the second grade happenings of the day.
Years later, the duties of raising a family of five children curtailed my writing cravings until retirement allowed time to indulge my fertile imagination. I can now claim the dubious title of author without fearing being struck by lightning for lying. Over a dozen novels—only four published so far—and close to two dozen short stories total my output since I starting drawing SS checks. Retirement is grand.

Review by: Zimmer Khan on July 4, 2013 :
Very poorly written and managed. Even the title on cover differs from the title inside the book /web site. a half star piece of write-up.

Darn it, I thought only I knew of Professor Strunk and E.B. White.
Stick around, Ernest Winchester, because America needs a guy who writes so well.
I lost Mom, Dad, and a sweet sister to the Big C because they were a little tardy with their checkups. Thanks for the warning--I have a feeling you'll beat it. You're getting a lot of prayers.
Keep writing.

I am convinced that those sixty-plus downloaders -- not referring to age here, of course, but to the quantity of downloads -- that you mentioned in your intro in Part 2 of "My Operation" were pulling for you. I wish I could say I was, but I had not joined Smashwords yet, so let us just say that my future consciousness at the time was rooting for you to recuperate so that you could continue to be the pain in the a** of all writers (myself included) who curse the air you breathe when our works are bestowed with one-star ratings from you.

From one pain in the butt to another, I wish you continued good health. And please continue to spread the word that getting a health screening can save one's life.

And please don't rough me up for beginning a sentence with the word "please" or I will proofread every e-book you have published on Smashwords to try to find typographical errors. Just kidding ...

P.S. I caught the reference to the "pretty nurse" -- you sly dog, you -- in your epistolary sequel. So that is how you pulled through, hunh?

I have just concluded the second part. It is another work that I did enjoy. Thank You for a look inside your life albeit a brief one. I am right there beside you in understanding how to "vital" checks can be annoying. Been there, done that. The sense of humor once again came through. Thank You, and I am glad that everything came out alright.

Happy to hear you so nicely made it through the operation, man. I was so worried after I read the first part last month. Hope the wound heals up nicely.

I will read almost anything on almost any topic as long as the writing is fresh and exact--as in this piece by Ernie Winchester. If I were an editor or publisher I would hit the delete key as soon as I encountered the first cliche--Ernie doesn't have any. After a similar operation, I referred to my zipper right off as a scar. Huh uh! Ernie rightly describes his fresh cut as a "wound." What a fine writer! Janice Daugharty
