I am a published writer: short stories, poems, and three books, so far.

Listed in several annual "Poet's Market", as a contributor, under "Beyond Centauri". (Sam's Dot Publishing)Other magazines/anthologies I have been in: "Aoife's Kiss", "Shelter of Daylight", "The Drabbler", "Spaceports and Spidersilk" (online), "Scifaikuest", "Cosmic Crime Stories".I have written 5 historical, vampire novels, the first two are now available for purchase, from Alban Lake Publishing. The basis of these novels is the short story called "A Vow of Blood", which is in Issue 12 of "Hungur" (sdpbookstore.com/bestsellers.htm)My new print, publishing company is Alban Lake Publishing. My vampire series will be published by Alban Lake.Self-published (with money I inherited from my mother) poetry books: "Grandpa's Chair" - available on Amazon.com and from other bookstores, and now on Smashwords; and "On the Edge" (dealing with depression) - Trafford Publishing and now on Smashwords.The continuation of "Grandpa's Chair" is called "Herman's Store", which is on Smashwords. "Tails from the 'Hood" is also on Smashwords.My blog and the latest information about my writing are on my Goodreads author's page. I also have a page on Goodreads, especially for little kids called "Bee Bits". This page includes some of my "Illustrated" poems, which I plan, in the future, to put into a book called "Bee Bits".I am looking for pictures from children (with their parents' permission, of course) drawn after hearing (or reading) one of the poems from my three children's poetry books ("Grandpa's Chair", "Herman's Store, and "Tails From the 'Hood") for my Facebook page: "Grandpa's Chair Pictures" facebook.com/GrandpasChairPictures.
