About Me


Something you should know from the gate: I'm a writer, not a critique, not a reviewer, not a proof-reader. Please do not bother me with that sort of thing, as I am not here for that.

I spend too much time writing for all of that, and I will not apologize for it. If I have befriended you, that doesn't mean it was at random, it means you wrote something (at least one thing) that I liked or loved. It means that I think you are a good writer yourself. That should be enough for you my vain little friend.

I hate to sound like a cynic, but if you cannot agree to these terms, do not bother me. Except my work for what it is and not what it isn't. But, if we can agree to these (shall we say) parlor-conditions, then you and I are clandestine to go on many a strange and exciting journeys together.

That is all for now. Let us continue.

I grew up in Central Alabama (born in the same town as Edward Bloom) and began writing poetry and short stories at age nine. I am now the author of several poetry compilations, a song and lyric collection, and a collection of short stories. I also wrote a collection of poetry under the pseudonym Louis McKraker.

I am sorry I didn't comment back to you. I didn't get a notification! FL was really nice. Time was too short, but that's always the case. Spent a lot of time with family and friends and didn't have time to write while there. I have done a few pieces since returning, though. I love being near water.

I've been well. Florida sounds pretty sweet. Did you do any creative thinking down there? I imagine Florida would be great for, since it's so pretty.
