My fiction includes short stories, Joe, It's Been Interesting and full length novels, 1970 and The Theft of the Twelve Days. As with most writers, my stories have to do with events and people I have experienced. 1970 is based on two pivotal years of my life and the Vietnam war had on me. It is a novel only because decades have passed and I no longer remember every detail and there are people to protect, but the events described did happen to me, that is true. The short story Joe was written at a time in my life where I hardly knew which way was up.


For now I am only putting up parts of the novels, I will add more as I am satisfied they are finished in a rough draft form.
