On March 31, 2015 I retired from Federal service, and in addition to my military retirement from the U.S. Air Force in June 1999, this was my second and final retirement from working for “the man.” From now on I work for myself as a full-time writer. I have recently written and published stories for a collection as an e-book, entitled Whiskey and Pickles: A Collection of Short Fiction. The stories vary in length from scenes, to short stories, to novellas and the genres range from horror, to science fiction, to straight literary fiction, to comedic design, all told from my particular point of view. My Bachelor of Arts Degree in English from the University of Hawaii-West Oahu, is finally getting its intended use and I am publishing my stories for one reason and one reason only: to be read and enjoyed by you the reader. My first novel In Shining Armor and my first non-fiction book, My Bipolar are currently in the works and I hope to publish both by the end of 2016. I hope you love reading them as much as I loved writing them. Enjoy!
