Jay J Walter
I was a hopeful inventor when I began to write. I owe the need to do so to two factors; I love to create, writing is only inventing with words, and I had just read Tolkien for the first time and he blew me away. After reading The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings three times I was hooked. I want to do anything that others have left me to enjoy and writing just seemed an easy past time wile I worked toward marketing some of my designs.
I couldn't have been more wrong.
It has taken me decades to understand what writing really involves. I'd like to think I am good at it now, I've certainly put in the time, but only you can decide my quality. There is nothing more satisfying to me than living within my own worlds. Finishing a story is almost sad. I have to say good-bye to those friends I've made there. Starting a new story seems empty and somehow unfaithful. But then I learn to enjoy the new world and soon I start making friends again. That's when the story starts to evolve.
Writing isn't easy for me but a passion all the same. I hope I've let you feel that while you read my stories. I'll make you two promises; one, I'll make every effort to write the best story I can. Two, honesty. I'll never write my own reviews or have a friend plant a review that I don't deserve. I think that happens all too often in the ebook community. Reviews are the only reputation ebook readers can count on. Falsifying a review destroys the trust a reader has for an author.
Finally, I won't write my own bios in the third person. Any words I write you will know they are from me. Marketing has become a game I won't play. I'll rise or fall on the opinions of my readers.
I was born in central Pennsylvania during the Eisenhower administration. I have a lot of life behind me. Hopefully a lot more ahead of me. We moved around a lot. In many of our homes I was there only a year or less. I think living in so many places has given me a perspective on a good many personality types. I think that is good for a writer. Stories are people.
Moving often isn't so good for a kid. It robbed me of any place I could call home. It is difficult for me to write about tight niche communities. I've never lived it. I write about the lost and the lonely. I've seen my share of death in my life and for that my stories are mostly dark. I've tried to write happy endings. They never turn out that way.
I want to have you as a repeat reader and I'll do my best to keep you entertained. No one appeals to everyone, but that is the wonder of stories. There is something for everyone. As it should be.
