I live with my family on the edge of the Cleveland National Forest, serenaded nightly by coyotes wandering the valley below. My dogs talk back to them. Wish I knew what they were saying to each other.

Free Story of Jesse’s Heart Trouble

“The trouble with Jesse all started when his girlfriend went and had a change of heart. Wouldn’t have been no big deal if Jesse hadn’t decided to keep her old one…”

Intrigued? Below is the link to read the rest of this short story I wrote published in the Mad Scientist Journal earlier this year.  If you take time to read it, I hope you will let me know what you thought about it. Enjoy and thanks!

(Oops…There seems to be a problem with the Mad Scientist website- if you can’t get the story online, let me know and I will send you the story direct.)

Another update-it seems that Mad Scientist Journal has taken this story down from its site. (Maybe in response to my posting a link here? It was working when I did it.)  The story is part of the anthology they have for sale on Amazon, so that may be why.  I’ve added the link for the anthology at the bottom of this post.

Anyway, my offer to send out a free copy of my short story stands… but you will have to give me your email address.   Put your request in as a reply and I’ll send it right out.

Anthology for Sale on Amazon

Getting Started

CaptureWalkerJust setting up here… more content to follow. I will be posting some of my short stories for you to read for free. I will also record the steps I am taking to publish my science fiction novel “NanoMorphosis.”  The book is in final editing phase now, and I’m working with a professional illustrator to come with a book cover. It’s looking good so far. Just a few nitpicks to address. What a learning experience this publishing business has been. If you’re a reader or writer, I hope to entertain you. Although science fiction is a love of mine, it’s not the only one, so the topics that will appear here may vary depending on the feedback I get.  If you happen to be a Star Trek fan, and are looking for something to read, check out my 2nd Gen novels and short stories.
