Author has written 23 stories for Supernatural, General, Mythology, Nature, General, Spiritual, Love, Young Adult, Fable, Romance, Fantasy, and Essay.

I have been a member of FictionPress for many years and after a long hiatus caused by college I finally have some free time to myself (albeit very little).

I happen to be a physics teacher at a high school in Texas, but that has very little influence on what I write.

As the laws of courtesy require: if you review one of my stories, I will review one of yours. The more critical and analyzing the better!

I have no doubt that the poetry is trite, but I've left some of it up anyway. And I also have no doubt that whatever I've written before 2010 had the amateurish qualities of a high school student. Hopefully the new decade and experiences I've had since I've last written have increased my skills and not just my age.

I do have a tendency to be very critical in my reviews, but that is only because I would want others to be as critical to me. I try not to offend or insult, but just state potential flaws as I see them.


Currently Working On:

From the Heart of a High School Science Teacher: As the AN in the first chapter hints at, there should be quite a few of those essays.

A Writer's Workshop

Unforeseen: A work based on the myth of Psyche and Eros which I am debating putting on FP...


"Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man's growth without destroying his roots. "

GOOD WRITERS spend:

85% of their time on prewriting

AVERAGE/LESSER ABILITY writers spend:

almost NO time on prewriting

(Presumably I'm only a middling writer then...)

All they others saw was brilliant, ingenious mastery of their respective instruments. Yet, love and passion doesn't always come in sweet words and soft touches. All they needed was the stage and the strings. That, and music.
