Howard Freedman


Howard Freedman received the writing bug a little later in life. He has been writing fiction for about ten years, or for about a sixth of his life. (Do the math.) Earlier works are short stories, but later tales became a little more long winded, so novelette is probably a bit more of an appropriate designation. A good share of his work is somewhat sci-fi, often Twilight Zone-ish, sometimes more of a dark comedy, other times more heart felt, but in any case, all may be considered a little off the beaten path. Prior to delving into creative writing, his artistic endeavors were focused more on creative photography, as evident of the cover images created for his publications. Howard lives in Lawrence, KS with his wife and two (currently) dogs.
