Author has written 21 stories for Life, General, General, Love, and Friendship.

So one day I woke up and realized that I could describe myself with overused quotes taken from tired and overworked people...but then maybe that in itself describes me. I write because I can, and I live because I can write. What else is there?


"Forty-three years old, and the war occurred half a lifetime ago, and yet the remembering makes it now. And sometimes remembering will lead to a story, which makes it forever. That's what stories are for. Stories are for joining the past to the future. Stories are for those late hours in the night when you can't remember how you got from where you were to where you are. Stories are for eternity, when memory is erased, when there is nothing to remember except the story."

~Tim O'Brien


Newest Poem: Photographs and Stardust

Projects in Progress: My Ronan Story, lately I've been on a short story kick...and any poetry of course...my computer's files are filled with half finished poems...


"We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us,

with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke,

and a presumption that once our eyes watered."

-Tom Stoppard
