A Story for Halloween

Back in 2009 when I first started to get serious about writing, my wife was putting together a lovely little writing group. It was a group of good friends that wanted to write various things.

Now In Print – Meteor Attack!

Falling in love and saving the world… If you recall, I released the first episode in my Superhero/Love Story series (“Neutrinoman and Lightningirl: A Love Story”) last year. I’m still busy at work on it (two more episodes are in the pipeline) but in the meantime I have gotten the first episode into print. You […]
