Bio:
I've been writing in my spare time for something like 30 years.  I've tried off and on to get my work published.  I'm hoping the chance to self publish through Gutenberg.org will goad me in spending more time doing something I've always enjoyed.

Had the man looked through another peephole he might have said, "Saints and angels and martyrs and holy men," and he would have meant the same thing.

And Kipling for his insight into the absurdity of our attempts to run the world.

“I know it’s none of my business, but is she serious?” Kitty shrugged, “Just a phase. And too young anyway.” The Professor wore a downtrodden face when he said that if that was the case, every woman in the joint was too young for him. “Not true,” Kitty compared him to fine wine, or better yet whiskey. He had gained subtleties from the barrel and had been gentled by experience. “Ah,” the Professor said. “And Skates?” “Boone's Farm.” They laughed and a...
