Writing is a marathon it is also a passion much like fire. A fire takes dried stick as a book needs words.Words become sentences, sentences become paragraph this is the fire catching and that fire becomes a book. Without special skills of creation any book would not be created. It takes adquit skill with words to be a story teller. In this sense this book is dedicted to all the writers but especially to H.P. Lovecraft and Stephen King for theirs alone is where my inspiration to write horror comes from. Ever page is a mile in this marathon of writing. If as a writer I fail to reach my audience I have failed in my goal as a writer as well as failed myself. For writing is not just for the readers but also for the writers themselves. I write for my family, friends and members of Booksie.com. I would like to thank my father, Gerald Lachnicht and my mother Lisa as well as my friend Benji Crow for their dedication to expanding my writing. As well as the site www.Booksie.com where most of my writing up to date can be found. I am a poet, a writer of Sci-fi and Fantasy as well as Horror. It is with this passion of spreading words to paper words that make sentences which make paragraphs that I set down to tell you the tale of "The Darkest Night."
