Overview

"Write what you know," my teacher told me.
"What if you don't know nothin?" I asked.
"Well, then you'd better get busy."
So, I went around the world a couple of times. I dabbled in college for about twenty years. I read a lot of books. I learned how to play guitar and piano and some other instruments. Eventually, I earned a living as a musician. Sort of. I fell in love a couple of times. I fathered a son. My best friend died. My mother and father died. My guru died.
Ready or not . . .
I decided to start at the top, so I wrote a book about the Bible. I call it: "The Bible: Exposed, or how to be happy in your disbelief." It took me fifteen years. Along the way I wrote dozens of short stories, some forgotten songs and three novels, two of which are readable, one of which is pretty good. Most of my words were lost in the virtual sands of time (floppy discs), and that's probably a good thing.
These few surviving tales are a mixed bag. The first five all have a musical theme. Music, I know. There is a story about an expensive guitar and another about a fifty-cent kazoo. A relationship ends in "Symphony in Z" and begins in "String Theory." A teacher once told me that all fiction begins with "What if?" Did you know that Elvis had a twin brother who died in childbirth? What if Jesse Presley had lived? Thus, "The Pressley Twins."
The rest of them are harder to categorize. One I wrote for my son because he needed a note from his parents explaining why he was late for school. Another is an ancient Norse legend that I just made up. "Tomatoes" is about a black hole that swallows one man's universe. In "The Cola Wars," Earth is invaded and conquered, but nobody notices. There is a child's-eye view of child predation and a couple of stories I wrote for the "worlds shortest short story" competition. My personal favorite is called "Movieland," which is, as far as I know, the only post-apocalyptic, Cinderella, biker, sci-fi, robot romance ever written.
In the end, the only thing I learned from my travels and travails is that I like to write. Enjoy.
