Red Sox fan who loves gadgets and computers.  

Have always enjoyed reading Stephen King, Clive Cussler, Robert Ludlum and others for years but never thought I could actually come up with ideas and tell a story myself.  Seeing my kids grow and try new things made me realize I'm not too old to try new things as well.

I hope to read some stories on this site in addition to writing a few of my own.

Please leave comments if you can spare the time.  I am learning and would like ideas that may guide me to create better stories and allow my enjoyment of writing and hopefully your enjoyment of reading to grow.
