"Every human being has hundreds of separate people living under his skin. The talent of a writer is his ability to give them their separate names, identities, personalities and have them relate to other characters living with him."
- Mel Brooks
Don't you just love this quote? It's especially pertinent here, because those hundreds of separate people living under my skin are just itching to get out, so I give them an opportunity to take shape at my keyboard. A few of them even take life.
In these humble pages, I have attempted to put the best of what has come out of my short time as a writer. Some of the stories are tongue in cheek; others deal with serious social issues. For whatever reason you choose to read them, I hope they touch you in some way. And in an effort to constantly improve, I need to know what you think. Please use the email link above or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. However you do it, please send me your opinions.
The first Mystery with a Wine List was so much fun to write and so well received that I decided to do another. I have added an excerpt from the next case tackled by Cade Blackstone. (We met him in A Murder of Crows.) This mystery is titled A Walk of Snipes, and there is a link to it above.
If you have read the opening of A Murder of Crows or A Walk of Snipes and want to know how it turns out, you can buy the whole book. See the info at the BUY BOOKS link, or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, for a signed copy.
I hope you like what you see here. Oh, say, check out my blog:
