I crawl from my dreams into the heart of Old South
About Me
Life has been sweet and is still. During my life, I traveled most of the world, lived in many parts of it, and loved every experience. Today, my time is spent deep inside my dreams, plucking bits and pieces of those days and placing them together with a bit of imagination, hoping they will be read someday. "Remember: Life is unforgiving, offers no promise of happiness nor success, but maybe the opportunity to earn both, and thus, more. Other than that? I wouldn't know." jdennis
Type of Writer
Other worlds, characters tethered to reality, life, the way it is, but the best parts: with sharing hearts, and adventure.
Writing Style
Word painting, rough grammar, and realistic dialogue sprinkled with some turns, twists, and maybe a surprise or two.
Including, but not limited to, Family (absolutely), Reading (anything), Writing (mostly SciFi and shades of "life"), Movies (Action and SciFi), Science (of all branches), and quiet moments to myself or with my wife. Did I say Science Fantasy?

I have never rhymed in my life. To me, poetry is more like a science than an art, and I retired from a life of science.
