I've been writing for the past thirty years. Lots of short stories, two magazine cover stories, and one novel (Psychic Rhymes.) My interest in writing began while I was in the Air Force, when I was tasked with writing manuals, surveys, academic tests, and updating military regulations on drug and alcohol abuse. This engendered my interest in continuing on with what has become my very enjoyable hobby of writing. Subsequent short stories published in various magazines encouraged me to try writing a novel. This was a 'wow' experience. Much different than anything I'd written in the past. But, it was also rewarding.
I took a time away from fiction writing and concentrated on writing newsletters and an occasional short story, and finally got the urge to do another novel, 'In A Manner Of Speaking.' Is an easy book to read. The the first six chapters are free, and will give you an idea if it is a story that you really must have!
