Lex J. Grootelaar


I started writing at a very young age but soon was more consumed with women, drinking and smoking. It was only when I realized that vice doesn't lead to virtue that I left childish things behind me and found myself back into the realm of writing, work, and love. It was in that aspect that the words started to flow. It may seem that I am not above putting lots of work on to the internet, but that doesn't mean I'm not focusing thoughts into words. I currently work for a Jet Fuel company that has ties to forestry and so in the summer months I fill planes and helicopters to fight forest fires in situations that are close to war zones - especially when towns are at risk. A lot of my ideas for future and current projects stem from these experiences.

Smashwords book reviews by Lex J. Grootelaar

  • Zombie Mine Forever on June 24, 2012

    Pretty funny, I'll be thinking about it the next time I'm with my girlfriend. You could almost add a zombie poem to go along with it, might be a nice touch.
  • 8 Fantasy Flashes on June 25, 2012

    You really made every word count in these shorts. Very entertaining, and unexpected messages behind them. I'm going to try my hand at writing flash fantasys seems like it is a lot of fun and a good writing challenge.
  • Soulmates and a Pot! on Aug. 01, 2012

    An excellent story, nice little lift to my day
  • The Von Barkingham Method of Time Travel on Aug. 06, 2012

    A cool conceptual look at time travel, written in good continuos stream, but then again maybe myself is watching myself write this review, and telling myself what is going to happen next.
