About Me

Just a lover of life.

Why do you write?

There is so many interesting things going on around us. It is our job as writers to capture these moments and share them with those who don't see.

Any favorite authors? Books?

I, Lucifer by Glen Duncan is one of my favorite books. Also, The Once and Future King written by T. H. White, Denis Johnson, Chuck Palahniuk, Raymond Carver, Tobias Wolfe, Anne Sexton, Jim Morrison, David Mamet but my all time favorite would have to be Richard Brautigan.

Just discovered this website and I love it. I highly recommend it for those who are looking to do book clubs with friends from all over the world.

Hi Robert. Glad to see you in the Woodshed!

Robert, That's funny, I'm doing the same - only at 250 words! 55 seems impossible. . .

Delighted you liked Temp Passport enough to buy my book! Kissy one time XX (Oops - that's 2!)

Thanks for responding to "Old Age," Robert. But be careful of people watching. It's hard on the eyes.
