|What I Write||
I write what I like to read: thrillers, SF, mysteries, fairy tales, horror, mainstream, and poetry.
I have been published in “Alternative Theologies,” “Short-Story.me,” “Gutter Eloquence,” “Big Beautiful Woman,” “Timeless Love” (India), “Room of One’s Own,”and by Macmillan, Osborne-McGraw Hill, Business Week online, Puget Sound Business Journal, and many others. I have left business and non-fiction writing to concentrate on novels, novellas, and short stories. I am a member of SFWA and MWA.
My Write-a-thon Goals
I am working on several stories, so I will provide a short narrative of what I have done. This may be writing a first draft, or editing, rewriting, and polishing (I do a lot of this), I am working on a novel, and have one poised to go out into the world. I also outline ideas so that I don’t lose them. I’m not putting my writing goals into word counts, but instead in to steady work on the writing and publishing process.
I have an offer for you. Give $100 to Clarion West and I’ll Tuckerize (use your name for a character’s name) you in the second book. Can’t afford that (I can’t), please give what you can. If you want a taste of what I’m working on, let me know.
