Author has written 43 stories for Haiku, Kids, General, Religion, Friendship, Nature, Life, Fantasy, and Romance.

I'm a fledgling writer so my writing is still dilettantish, amateurish, and mediocre (but that is for the reviewers to decide isn't it? so I'm pleading you all to please review my works!)... stay tuned for my better and more impressive compositions (especially those under the short story category) as I am still polishing them... And to all who read and reviewed my works thanks a trillion... You guys ROCK!!! It's all about reciprocity, YOU READ AND REVIEW MY WORKS THEN I'LL DO THE SAME WITH YOURS (smiles) but I can't assure that entirely... you can freely add any CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISMS if you feel the need to. My haikus are big hits...

These are the works that I consider my best works: (surprisingly, they are all haikus so expect them to be short)
1. Petal-Deep
2. The Swirling Blaze of Undying Fire
3. Glazed Crystalline Silicates
4. Elusive Lucidity
5. Firefly in Flight

I would like to thank the following for recognizing the beauty of my works:
The Juggler 42, Honey Nut Loop, Brooke Monroe, Carnal-Rhapsody and Ultimate Schuyler
You guys are the absolute best!!! Please do check their works if you have some time.

Also, check out my favorite authors list... for they too truly deserve special mention... and attention.
