'The Experiment' short featured in The Derby Telegraph

So my short story 'The Experiment' made its debut this past Saturday in The Derby Telegraph.  This is exciting and you can read 'The Experiment' online at the This Is Derbyshire website.

'The Experiment' is really an experiment on several fronts:  I'm writing science fiction, and there is an experiment in the story.  I have plans to expand upon the much abridged version now published in The Derby Telegraph.  Many kudos to author Neal James for connecting me to The Derby Telegraph, Steve Hall and Jane McFarlane at The Derby Telegraph, and also especially to David Hitchcock for his original artwork for the story.

Again, you can read here.

  2. Thanks, glad you liked it. It's a fun one to write, and there is a significant amount more to the story, but for my submission to The Derby Telegraph I had to keep it under 1,500 words. The artwork by their artist was fantastic too.

Merlin & Hagar : A Gnome Photo Series

I decided, on a whim yesterday, to make a photo series based off my wife's gnome collection. It was a collection she curated over her childhood, buying them all from the same place in Derby, Kansas, where her grandparents lived.

The series stars two gnomes, Merlin and Hagar. One is jolly, and the other grumpy. Enjoy.

I have the first two posted, and will embed below.



New website look and stuff coming soon

I've been meaning to give my site an extreme makeover and be better about writing posts, and sharing stories. Well, it's coming....I'm currently testing with my new theme/layout, and it is gonna be cool...let me tell ya. And as far as more content, I will be writing more and writing more blog posts as well. This is more of a challenge to myself to stay on top of things, and less of an actual promise. Yikes!Any rate, stay tuned.

A little on Audrey Hepburn, my favorite actor

It takes a lot for me to say something is 'my favorite'. For example, when it comes to movies, I have a laundry list, and the one at the top is really only there because I just can't bring myself to take it down for something else.

Some people claim actors as favorites for silly reasons. Yes, I said silly. While Audrey may not make the list for favorite actor for a lot of folks, though maybe for 'best style' or some other nonsense. For me, she makes the top for acting. And here's why...

In her career, and life, she was constantly met with challenges and always overcame them. An actor who takes on challenges and bests them, those are the truly talented actors. From her humble beginnings in life, taking part in the underground resistance during WW2, to stardom, she saw a lot of challenges along the way. Like, how do I save these Jews from the Nazi soldiers coming this way? Oh, let me walk over and pick a flower for the Nazi, giving the Jews time to get…
