About Me
My name is Jonathon Vanderhaus III. I've always enjoyed writing, but I rarely share my work with others. I hope that someday I can get a short story published in one of the great literary magazines and go to a decent MFA program.
Type of Writer
Frequent. Did journalism for little while, now I'm into fiction short stories.
Writing Style
Minimalist usually, often a realist. Focus on travel and character development.
Oh, there's a bunch, but I'm never consistant with them. Ummm, let's see, in the past I've taken up boxing, cayaking, rock climbing, wood carving, power risers (ridiculous elastic stilts), and all manner of odd activities
