About Me
Trying to get back into it with "Roswell Avenue, a collection of supernatural mysteries.

Previous Flight Deck winners are highlighted below. Pay them a visit for some excellent reading!
Type of Writer
Serious; can't write much in the way of comedy. Believer in the concept that characters are fiction.
Writing Style
Old-fashioned boy's-own, which I missed tremendously before I decided to write it for myself. Readers seemed to love it!
Interests
Xbox, old movies and TV, boardgames, history, and catching up on my beauty rest. "Dreamweaver Bar & Grill where an odd and unique contest launches monthly. Recently developed an interest in Lovecraft. I was too young the first time I read him, but I'm not now!

Favorite Books
The Forgotten Realms series by R.A. Salvatore
Favorite Authors
Karen Carlisle, C.W. Hawes, William J. Jackson, Stephanie Kato, Bryce Raffle, David Lee Summers, Sarah Zama
Favorite Poets
Poe, Kipling; not much on poetry. Not smart enough to get the symbolism that so much of it uses to make its points. What can I say; I'm a simple guy!
Favorite Quote
"It's what you learn after you know it all that counts." ~ John Wooden
Favorite Music
Hot blues and cool jazz.
Favorite Movies
Old ones from before sex, violence, and explosions were substituted for plot and acting ability. Folks nowadays seem to believe that the superior effects available negate the need for nuanced cinematic skills.
Favorite Shows
Looking at my list of faves, it seems to follow the movies. I think the last show I liked first-run was Law & Order. I like some of the newer British and Canadian stuff, though. They still seem to get it.
