About Me
I was comfortable giving up writing and fading away, but my friends, of whom there are more than I knew, held an intervention, and I came back. Was that a mistake? It's beginning to look like it, but I'll give it a chance, for who knows the vagaries of tomorrow?
Type of Writer
Writing Style
Dramatic, supernatural, a bit of horror. Something for everyone, as the saying used to go.
Exploring the rich worlds of video games (see my blog below), old TV and movies... What can I say? At 73, I like being comfortable at home.
