I write, write, and write, and I love every minute I am. I hope you will find some enjoyment in my writing.
Almost An Orphan
As the subtitle says, this is my life, step by misstep. A life that began by being "kidnapped" from my paternal grandmother shortly before my fifth birthday and spirited away to a home for boys from broken homes where I would spend the next ten years. While being an atypical childhood, with eighty boys age five to eighteen, there was no shortage of adventure. My life rolled out after meeting my mother when I was thirteen, and off I went on my next adventures.
Fog Banks In Time
The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper. W.B. Yeats
Fog Banks is a collection of short stories I have written over the years, sometimes to enter in writing contests, and occasionally simply because a strange idea for a story popped into my head. I hope readers will find favorites among the many odd and twisted tales.
"Everything in the known universe is in motion and changing. Our galaxy, solar system, and planet are in constant motion. Everything is evolving, stars are exploding and imploding, planets and galaxies disintegrate, and the debris from these massive detonations coalesce into new planets. Entire solar systems and galaxies are devouring one another. And human spirituality is changing."
"Warning! Suppose you are devoutly religious, or even casually so, and the questioning of the various teachings you subscribe to or the idea of someone challenging the existence of God causes you to go into an uncontrollable rage, sending you in search of high-powered automatic weapons. In that case, I strongly suggest you read no further.
Put this book down! Don't buy it! Better yet, buy it so that you can burn it (This assumes I can ever get the damned thing published). Or return it to whomever or wherever it was borrowed. Or finish your business quickly and leave it in the bathroom where you found it. And please, don't tear out any pages, even if the toilet paper roll is empty. The next person might want to read the whole thing."
