Dawdling Ducks

Dawdling Ducks is written in the spirit of the movies...



My first attempt is entitled "Dawdling Ducks" was written in the spirit of the movies American Graffiti, Dazed and Confused and Super Bad.  The book is a subtle action/comedy of cruising, conflict, hot rodding, drag racing, romance, rumbles, car crashes and life changing decisions of Midwest teens during a single wild eventful cold January night in 1976.

I have written an intro for another book that I have only outlined but not written at this point.  I plan to write the book in the spirit of Patrick O'Connor  A.K.A. Leonard Wibberley's "Black Tiger" series.  The book's working title is "Life a Quarter Mile at a Time". The story is about Jeff a character from "Dawdling Ducks" and his quest of becoming a pro-drag racer. I like the name I chose for the book but may be  little too Vin Diesel.  I will keep it until I can think of a better name.

The short essay Tree on the Hill" I wrote for fun after I saw a writing contest prompt while surfing the net.  The contest was over by the time I saw the web page, however the prompt of a lone tree on a hill struck a nerve and I wrote the essay.

After reading the complete set of novels of the AubreyMaturin series by Patrick O'Brian, I really wanted to write a short story in Patick O'Brian's style of writing.  Again, I found inspiration in a history scholarship contest while surfing the web.  This short story was my first attempt at writing for fun.   

My last Novel is entitled The Transformation of Lucas Apple.  It is a modern remake of the Roman classic, "The Golden Ass". 

My short story entitled "Phillip Kippelton" is rewrite of the Greek tragedy "Philoktetes"
