Author has written 28 stories for Nature, General, Supernatural, Humor, Horror, General, Thriller, Sci-Fi, and Fable.

This is the site I have been looking for!

I am a 45 year old husband and father who loves to write. Unfortunately, finding someone who is willing to read and review my writings (aside from my beautiful wife) is somewhat difficult.

I welcome, even look forward to, any review people are willing to give. Please don't be afraid to tell me my shortcomings, how else will I grow as an author?

Looking forward to reading and reviewing stories as well.

Thoughts I happen to like, I call them "Literary tattoos."

"Words are the vessel that empties the cargo of our soul." - Unknown

"Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail." (K'ung Ch'lu: Otherwise known as 'Confucious')

"The world of reality has its limits; The world of imagination is boundless." Jean-Jacques Rousseau

"Sometimes the only way you can feel good about yourself is to make someone else feel bad, and I'm tired of making everyone else feel good about themselves." - Homer Simpson.

"Let me get this straight: You think that your client, one of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the world, is secretly a vigilante who spends his nights beating criminals to a pulp with his bare hands. And your plan is to blackmail this person? Good luck." Lucious Fox (The Dark Knight)

Current favorite movies: R.E.D., Megamind, Law abiding citizen, The Dark Knight, Memento

Favorite music: Metallica, Creed, Skillet, Tourniquet, Van Halen, 12 stones.

Looking forward to: Getting published, New family editions.

Favorite authors: J.R.R. Tolkien, Clive Cussler, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Timothy Zahn, Dave Barry, Sun Tzu, J.K. Rowling, Peter David.

If I review one of your stories, please return the favor. I am always looking for constructive criticism.
