Background Information

My first writing experiences began in Jr. High School.  I read continuously, mostly at night.  Lots of sleepless nights, lots of novels and movies.  I always seemed to be drawn to the ones that would send you into a panic.  The Amityville Horror, Salem's Lot, The Exorcist, Carrie, etc., to name a few.  I always needed a nightlight and woke up at the slightest noise.  The old house we lived in provided plenty of snaps and creaks all night long.   This old house was originally a broom factory converted into a dwelling.  I remember at six years old, helping clear the property and finding half a tombstone in the far back corner of the lot.  
I could really share stories about the crazy stuff I witnessed, but that's for another time (or novel). 
I never considered writing anything, but then one day I stepped in to my first English Literature class.  The teacher was this tiny lady with a commanding projecting voice.  The class was required to read, read, read, which was right up my alley, along with the book reports.  If only my Algebra class could have been so exhilarating.  She was one of the few teachers that stretched my abilities and made them grow.
The the dreaded day came that we were all assigned to write a fiction "short story" as an end of year grade.
I wrote my first short story, a horror story, "The Devils Mill", the night before it was due.  I still have it.
The "A" I received was such a shock, I was grinning like a fool inside.
But no good deed goes unpunished. 

I still remember the feeling when I was asked to read it to the class and almost ran back to the seat when I was through. 

Through this experience, I found that I loved to create fiction.

Writers Rant
A resource for New Writers and Writer Wannabes. A place I share victories and almost defeats so that others won’t step in the same poo that I have from time to time. Pitfalls are the pits… Stepping stones keep your feet dry, but a helping hand to keep your balance is priceless…

Imagine being able to pick up or touch an object and in a few moments time, know everything there is to know about it. Imagine not knowing you were predisposed to haptic sensitivity until some stressor plunged you into a world you weren’t prepared for. Nathan Heart, youngest of five siblings, has come to ignore the freakish noises inside Heart Manor and the brutal rankles of his eldest sister over the last twelve months. Alone, after watching the decline of his mother during the last stages of Alzheimer’s, and the duress of fulfilling the last wishes of her Will, his only hope is to sell the estate and be free of his indentured bondage. Refusing to accept supernatural explanations for strange happenings in the empty mansion, Nathan feels he may have inherited his parent’s genome of insanity, causing the noises to take on a different meaning. On the verge of seeking professional help for the unthinkable, Nathan Heart is thrown a lifeline. The house is sold, but the new owners have attached a web of strings that will hurtle him down a rabbit hole he never knew existed.

Between Life and Death
This is my first full length Fiction Novel @596 pages. More info at Supernatural tale of suspense.
