I was born on Halloween, and have learned that life oscillates between trick or treat and a horror story.

Background Information

 Writing has always fascinated me and I love books. I have an undergraduate degree in English, and for a brief period tried to own and manage a used bookstore. Although I have been told I have a modicum of talent for writing, I found it is often difficult, almost excruciatingly so. But I love those times when it comes easily and really flows. I am less thrilled by those times when I am compelled to wite and endlessly revise something. Some people call that "inspiration." Fortunately, those times are rare, but they have probably been responsible for some of my best writing. None of those pieces were ever published. I never felt any compulsion to publish, maybe because when I go back to something I've written I usually find fault with it, and want to revise it or throw it out  - even when other people thought it was pretty good.

Offhand, I can't really think of any writers or particular books or novels that were a great influence on my writing style. I can think of numerous books that I admired, and a few that influenced my thinking at various times in my life, especially when I was younger, but none that had a pronounced influence on my own writing. 

Additional Information

I have published a couple of short stories as free ebooks,entitled Healthy or Else, and Trick or Trap. They are described below.

Healthy or Else
A speculative and satirical story of the health care industries assuming dictatorial powers in a recognizable near future society. The trends are in play now; the future may not be that far away. It is the story of one family's brush with the emerging health care regime. This is a free ebook.

Trick or Trap
It is Halloween and demons are invading West Hollywood’s Carnival. Also known as the Parade, it is the largest Halloween event in the world. The Bikini Girls, a team of bikini models and part-time crime fighters, are summoned to investigate and fight the demons. More spoof than spooky, the story is a treat with a few tricks and a fireworks show thrown in to make for a good Halloween read. This is a free ebook.
