I crawl from my imagination into the Old South.
About Me
Life has been sweet and still is. During my life, I traveled most of the world, lived in many parts of it and loved every experience. These days, I spend much of my time deep inside my imagination attempting to weave pieces of those experiences and some of the sights from my journey into fictional accounts, which I hope someone will someday read. "Remember: Life holds no promise of happiness, only the opportunity to attain it." jdennis
Type of Writer
Word painting, rough narration, realistic dialogue all sprinkled with some turns, twists, and maybe a surprise or two.
Writing Style
I let the characters tell me what to write about in their surroundings, where they want to go, how they feel, and why.
My interests include but are not limited to Family (absolutely), Reading (anything), Writing (varies, but mostly SciFi and life), Movies (Action and SciFi), Science (of all branches, all forms), and quiet moments to myself or with my wife.
