I am a freelance writer that took a twenty year hiatus from the literary world. I grew up in a small town in Michigan in the 70’s and 80’s. During my youth I was mesmerized by science fiction, and horror, especially the movies and television shows. Star Wars, Godzilla, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Alien, Batman, etc… I loved them all. Comics were also a huge part of my life.
In high school and college I took an interest in sports journalism, but never really found my niche. After college I spent the next twenty years immersed in the real life world of student loans, credit card debt, and retail. All the while trying to figure out who I am. I knew I wanted to be a writer, but I just didn’t think it would ever come to be. I would self deprecate and make excuses as to why it wasn’t happening for me.
It was a summer evening in 1997 that changed my life forever. I met and married the love of my life. We have spent the last 18 years happily married, but I felt unfulfilled in my career.
In the summer of 2015, I had an epiphany. I could spend the rest of my life doing something that my heart really wasn’t into, or I could take a leap of faith and do what makes me happy. Writing.
This blog represents who I am and what I like. I will mostly post short stories and flash fiction, but there will also be an occasional review of a movie, comic (One might say that comics are the most prolific short story medium in existence), or television show. There will be stories that may be scary, some that may be funny, and some just may be weird. Either way, I hope you enjoy. I look forward to any comments or feedback. Thanks for your time!
