Neil Larkins


I'm just an ordinary fella born in Kansas 65 years ago and raised in Colorado. Now living in Arizona, I'm married to a lovely lady and write a little here and there. I got some college under my belt some 47 years ago but that didn't do much for me and so worked my butt off as a tradesman 'til I retired. I now spend my spare time getting the message out on what I've written...If I have the energy. Not much interesting about me, but I hope that you the reader will find my stories compelling and make you want to read more. Thanks.
