Profile Information

My name's Joey.

I'm from Chicago (southside to be exact), home of the hotdog (hold the ketchup) and the Ferris wheel...And o yea DA Bears.

But it's also home to some bad things like; Barrack, Daley's crooked ass, corrupt cops, and many many gangs...(almost joined one as a kid...YIKES)

Writing became a passion of mine a year ago when i received a letter from my boss saying i was laid-off. I had nothing to do for most of my days so i started reading. I discovered a book called NIGHT AND THE CITY by Gerald Kersh at the library the very first time i ever stepped foot in one, (Mother's suggestion) and developed an interest in literature; mainly fiction. 

I started reading more and more and before i knew it i realized i wanted to try writing a little. Once i wrote my first short story WITHOUT PEACE i was on my way and never looked back.

Strange, considering I slacked my way thru High School...never did homework and never studied; cheated off the nerds a lot. Thanx guys.

Writing is cool.. tell your kids i said so.

Anyway, my style can be called a number of things. But i love city stories; about inner-city youth, complex city dwellers battling inner demons, and drug abusers (I'm not one incase you wonder). I guess i just like to think of the folks i've known in life and turn their life stories around into word-art. Many of my stories are based on real people but i never use real names and never give personal or incriminating details. i like to recreate their story for dramatic purposes of course.

I also like photography and some of my stories are inspired by or based on pictures i take or some that others show me.

So read my stories when you get a chance and let me know what you think..i appreciate criticism. good and bad...
