Hello, there and welcome to my page on Writing Room. After a long, long (long) career as a nurse in the operating room I retired and now I do what I want. And what is it I waited all this time to do? Right! That's why I'm here too. 

Most of my days are spent with my dog, drawing, painting, and writing. I hope you enjoy the stories I post on the Writing Room and please, PLEASE, leave comments, positive or negative. I need feedback to know if what I write works.

I have a self-published novel out there in the ether called Interesting Times available on Amazon and ITunes. The protagonist of this book, Tom Verwarring, is a weak, flawed, agoraphobic divorced man with a traumatized past he's barely aware of and a life which is unraveling as he watches. The only good news is, he's not actually alone anymore

There's also a short story I wrote called Invisible Birds also available on Amazon. It's about a man who wakes up one day and finds out he's been given the task of keeping reality in existence. Sound like fun? He didn't think so either.

I'm working on a second novel and in the meantime, I'm writing short stories. Maybe they'd be better called Small Stories as they average 1500 - 6000 words each and I try to write one each day, but I seldom accomplish that.
