I guess I have been telling stories all my life but up until ten years ago I never put anything on paper. I started telling the local kids I played with stories of movies I saw. When I was working I told stories to the other men I worked with and later I told my grand children stories I made up on the fly trying to keep them from getting loud in the car waiting for their mother who was in the store. Now that I have the time I try to write something every day. I hope that it is entertaining for you.
What is your writing process?
I write an hour every day except Sat. and Sun. I try to write about one-thousand or more words into a novel I am doing.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
One of my first stories I remember very well is one called "Jerry Todd and the Flying Flapdoodle" I remember the name but what was inside not too much.
Late in 1938 Germany, a small boy plays with his friends in a field when something changes his life. He starts a journey that will bring him far away from the home he has grown up in. A wonderful love story for young people.
This is another 8 short stories for children. Some will get your child thinking that he or she would like to do some of the things William and the others are doing. Other stories will get them interested in reading longer tales that might spark their imagination.
