Profile Information

Thanks to anyone who's taking the time to read this. It must mean you have at least a passing interest in my writings, and for that, I'm flattered. ;)

When I started my first novel, I was in a maximum-security prison cell. I hadn't seen or felt the sun in months. It actually turned my hair grey! So I had a whole stack of blank paper and a pencil, and I got the idea to write something as completely senselessly STUPID (but funny nonetheless) as I could possibly conjure up. Complete isolation, 40mg of Prozac and a vivid imagination helped me write my first book, Odd-Jobs.

As it turned out, it was actually good, and I received high praise from my fellow inmates who were equally as messed up in the head as I am. Over the next two years, I wrote five more novels and some short stories, which I've had published in literary magazines.

I currently use CreateSpace.com, Lulu.com and Amazon (for the Kindle version; dtp.amazon.com) to self-publish my books. You can read any of my novels for free from my website, and if you like a story, I invite you to download a copy in PDF format and pass it on to someone else who might like it. I don't care about book sales. If I sell some copies, great! But right now I just want to get my work out there. As one method of shameless promotion, I send copies of my books to inmates whose family asks me to. I send them for free, and pay the postage myself.

An article in the Writer's Market said something to the effect of, anyone who says they're not in it for the money is lying. Well, my name is my legacy. It may be my ONLY legacy. When an average person dies, they are forgotten completely by everyone within 50 years.

I just don't ever want to be forgotten.
