It's OK. Other more "modern" works are in the process of being written, and those will be posted as such. But because nobody is writing like this anymore, I just had to see if I could do it.

If you enjoy such stories, then I hope you enjoy John Smith as much as I enjoy writing it!

Meet the Author

In my forty something years I have generated a very broad set of experiences and interests, but through it all, I have always read. It seems that at times it is harder to find books that enthrall me, although admittedly I am behind on my reading, so I decided to start writing the kind of stories I'd want to read.

I have always had stories in my head, they intrude at the strangest times. At some point, I discovered that when I took the time to write them down, more stories kept pouring out. There are so many ideas I have, it seems like there won't be enough time to get to them all. I'm starting with one story, in one particular style. But other stories, in different styles are coming. Stay tuned.

My goal in writing is above all to entertain.

Thank you in advance for giving me that opportunity.
