I've been writing for my own entertainment since the 4th grade, for which I owe a huge debt that can never be repaid to my 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Viola Lang. Mrs. Lang passed away in the first part of 2014 but I'm certain that somewhere, the universe is still listening: Thank you Mrs. Lang, for believing in my and encouraging my writing.
My writing has resulted in earnings twice, for the astronomical sum of $40. I suspect I could have earned more over the years if I had submitted more, but those were the only two short stories I ever submitted.
I am currently (avoiding) writing an historical novel set in Scotland, 1539. There is so much to do to it, and I've done so little! Isn't that every unpublished author's lament? (I hope that I can edit this introduction later. I'd like to keep this last paragraph up-to-date with progress.)
I hope you enjoy what I post here because that's why I write. Whether you do or whether you don't, your feedback is always welcome and I will profit from your suggestions whether I wind up using them or not.
