Overview

"My Thoughts and Other Spirits" is a compilation of short stories, poetry and song lyrics.

The short stories are about various subjects. There are several spooky stories such as 'The Old Haunt', about a man who purchases a haunted house and falls in love with the attractive female ghost who haunts the place. 'The Screeching Laugh' in which the main character is devoured by a monster who is lurking for years in the woods behind his house.

Aside from scary stories, there are tragic stories such as 'The Long Sleep' in which a man is injured after a fall from a horse and spends nearly thirty years as a vegetable, then suddenly wakes after the clot in his brain dissolves.

Another tragedy is 'Katie'. It is about a good Catholic girl who falls in love with a Protestant man. After the man propose marriage, the father of the future bride insists there will be no marriage. The father breaks the marriage up.

A couple of years later the father insists Katie marry a Catholic man who works with him. The marriage ends in a bad case of domestic violence.

The poetry is mostly free verse. There are, however, some rhyming poems. Some of the poems deal with love. There are poems of the love of life. Some deal with the relationship with the spiritual world. My poetry has been called Christian Existentialism, as well as metaphysical. You can choose for yourself what it is.

My real intent, which will especially realize with my song lyrics, is to entertain people.
