Alan R. Secor

Biography

I, Alan R. Secor, am an aspiring new writer. At sixty years of age, it is about time I publish my writings. I enjoy writing essays about nature, funny incidents, spiritual subjects, free verse poetry, and short stories. “A Kind and Wiser World,” a science fiction/fantasy/spiritual novella, will be my first story for publication.
I have always been an avid reader, but now I am taking the art of writing seriously. In my writing, I hope to teach, inspire, and entertain people.
I have completed a fictional adventure short story that I will publish soon.
I attended Tidewater Community College, where I was a member of Phi Theta Kappa. I was unable to earn a degree for various reasons. However, I have done a lot of self-study.
I was born in Chester, Pennsylvania, but lived in Philadelphia as a boy. I currently reside and work in Hampton Roads, Virginia.
As of 2/23/2017, I am finishing another fiction, but based on a real life event. The title will be: "The Princess, Queen, and King."

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
It is too early to tell because of the lack of sales and my lowering the price two times.
