Author has written 3 stories for Historical, Spiritual, and General.

I am not new to the world of writing, but I decided that it would be good to post some of my stories, to see if I had any talent.

I mostly write historical fiction, as I just love history.

I also don't write specifically romances or angst or any type of story. I write what I want to. Yea for diversity!

Most of my writings tend to be longer than short stories but shorter than novels, as I like to flesh out characters and make them my own, but don't have the steam to write out an entire novel.

I'm mostly a writer and not a reviewer, but if I really like something or I like the author's writing in general, I'll say something.

I have had two short stories published in anthologies, but I am too lazy or I can't find contests good enough for me to publish things.

I suppose you'll want to know about my life and all the David Copperfield crap, so I'll give a list of the important parts of my life. I'll be mercifully brief.

1.) I live in the wonderful, sock shaped state of Indiana. Some may say it's boring and filled with corn, but I wouldn't live anywhere else.

2.) As of this year, on August 19th, I will leave childhood behind forever and become eighteen. It depress me as I now have to act my age, when I never had before.

3.) The one interesting fact about my birthday is that it was the exact same day that the Soviet Union collapsed. I just think it's interesting, as I'm a very boring, unfortunate person.

4.) I like reading classics, but most of those classics are written for children, like Anne of Green Gables and the Chronicles of Narnia. Yes, even my book taste is a little childish...

5.) I do, however, have a more mature taste for movies. I love watching movies from the Golden Age of Hollywood. I can't tell you why, but I hate most movies made today, and I love all of those movies with stars most kids my age have never heard of.

6.) Lastly, my pen name is taken from the Pogues song 'Bottle of Smoke.' Congrats if you got that reference! I'm just starting to get into them. I like listening to a lot of U.K. acts, and most of them were most active during the 80's (Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, The Pogues, to name a few). My avatar at the moment is a still taken from my favorite movie, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir.

I have an account on as well, and I'm also Bottle of Smoke there.

And, as always, thank you for taking the time to read my writing!
