Fiction Writing

Fiction writing is my favorite thing to do. Unfortunately, it is the hardest for me to sell too. Uh-oh...I'm starting to rhyme. The folks below are the writers of Port Nowhere and The Thing in the Tub. They are talented, great people - and I was lucky enough to be one of 'em. ;-)

Mystic Toad Press 1995

The Thing in the Tub

Eppie 2005 Award Winner

Getting the opportunity to be included in an actual book is a real head-pumper! The writers that pulled this off worked like dogs, myself included. This was the first time my work appeared in a book. Mystic Toad Press entered "Tub" in the 2005 EPIC (Electronic Publishing Industry Coalition) contests for Best Cover Art and Best in Category ebook. It won both!
