I write novels, short stories, screenplays, and stage plays, generally about lost dogs on mean streets, mainly because I was one once. I had a bout with Literature back in my 20s, but these days read mostly "genre" stuff, crime novels and whatnot, and I know that some people who did well in Lit Class put all that stuff down, but hey, here's the deal: Hemingway couldn't have carried Hammett's jockstrap, which Stein and Gide and other folks knew way back when, and they said it out loud.
I want the world to see through my eyes.

Robert! Nice to see you in a different neighborhood. Sorry they gave you the wrong bus route.
Robert--Thanks for reading. Close brushes with fame: I took a law school course taught by George V. Higgins. Out of ten classes I believe he showed up sober once. Got his autograph but lost it.
Well hello, Robert!
Hi there, Robert. Now I have a handy anthology of a little bit of your work. Look for me as a regular reader.
Rob, look who finally got invited to the party.
Robert, you are right, your Katrina story did connect tangentially as an Oil Story. I'm happy to have it on the group!
Robert, I'm anxious to check out more of your work. I started reading Roanne and I'm mesmerized. Will finish it up later but had to jot you a note-- this is story telling at its best
I felt like a fly on the wall reading your story "The Interview"
"The Interview" just knocked my socks off. Please join the Oil group and send a story!
Yeah, the photo's hard to look at, being sideways and all, 'specially in the morning. Welcome, eh?
You open the photograph, you find the little arrow that points to rotate, you click the arrow. YOU GOOF!!! Gorgeous shirt, though.
Welcome to Fictionaut!
