I love stories.

I listen to them. I watch them on TV, videos, or movies. I read them.

And I write them.

I’ve written almost every kind of story there is. Mystery, romance, confession, science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, horror, and every other kind I can think of and garnered a couple prizes and ‘best-selling’ author designations along the way.

I’ve written short stories, novellas, and novels.

In the process I’ve learned that my favorite stories are science fiction and paranormal. Preferably the two combined.

My stories are always clean, they are always either contemporary or near future, they always have at least a slight romantic element, and they always end happily. Always. Guaaranteed. (Okay, two short stories, ‘The River Boy’ and ‘Down From The Mountain’ have endings that might not be considered completely happy. Maybe just somewhat happy. You decide.)

Check out the covers below and see what you think. And have a happy, happy day.

SHORT STORIES

I’ve written short stories and novels. (Also been a copywriter, a story doctor and a ghost writer but those aren’t the subject for today.)

I prefer short stories. Not because I think they are better than other ways of telling stories but because I like the clarity. Beginning, middle, end and words along the way that put the characters in sharp focus without rambling.

So, though I still like novels and have a few in the back of my mind, I’m back to short fiction. At least for a while.

Science fiction to be precise because it was my first love as a kid and has remained so throughout my life. Though, in all honesty, I’m puzzled by the short science fiction I see today. It’s geared towards gamers and the thought process, and therefore the story process, is somewhat different.

  1. Agreed Florence – I want to be transported to new worlds, read about fantastic technologies, meet new lifeforms, etc, not about characters angst, finding themselves and defeating ‘unbeatable’ universal foes 😱

  2. Thanks for the comment. It’s nice to know that people who read my stuff also like science fiction.
