I am an emerging fiction writer living in Chicago. While I am a Luddite, I am using the forum because I love to meet new people, especially fellow artists, and learn new things.

Anyone interested in reading my published work can access it through the link under the My Web Site header on this blog. My short story "Life Goes on Without Me" recently won an honorable mention from Conclave: A Journal of Chracter's 2009 Fiction Contest. I am currently working on a novel, new short stories, and a creative non-fiction essay. My friend T.E. Russell has encouraged me to write a screenplay.

And as always, I am still submitting, submitting, submitting.

I look forward to meeting and reading from you.

To Quote the Great Studs Turkel: History is Thursday.

This man's egoism and arrogance are embarrassing, infuriating, and tragic. The only piece of advice I have for Kevin James if he asked me would be for him to read books on World War II and Neville Chamberlain, consult a dictionary for the definition of "appeasement", and better understand world history -past and contemporary. God willing, he will.

Mark Green's quote is great: rhetoric and not reality.
