STORY - Linda Takes a Shot at Marriage


This politically incorrect comedy of errors pokes some fun at some of my former neighbors. [Note: Contains questionable regional dialect, immature mature dialog, descriptive violence, and mild profanity. Dang, when you put it that way, I just want to blush a little bit.]

ESSAY - Religion Science and Truth

ESSAY - Proactive vs. Reactive


Proactive people are in the habit of staying so aware of their situation that they can anticipate needed changes. More than that, they are, by nature, open to examining, evaluating, and possibly embracing new ideas and opportunities.

STORY - The One That Got Away


A brave young man decides to introduce himself to one of a cluster of girls. (You know how they all like to stand in a group to talk?) What could go wrong? Wrong enough that the reader gets two endings to choose from.
