About meI'm a lifelong reader. Read War and Peace at 14.

I've dabbled in writing fiction off and on most of my life. Have had some minor publication the last few years. I started a new novel in the summer of 2013, a dark novel, a departure for me. I'm not sure where it is going to go.

A link to one of my stories:
Comments welcome.

I'm a father and grandpa, married 43 years.

About my libraryI read just about anything, though mostly fiction. I've read many more books than I own. I don't have a compulsion to own every book I read. If you own a book, but haven't read it, do you really own it?

I hope to dialogue with other readers and writers.

From Tim O'Brien: "The problem with unsuccessful stories is usually simple: they are boring, a consequence of the failure of imagination."
