I grew up on a farm in Arkansas, and I fully intend to retire right back to that same farm. But not yet.

My primary writing interests are in Fantasy and Horror, which are the genres where my books and most of my short stories fit. I also write nonfiction, however, and poetry.

This one was published after Laymon's death in February of 2001, and the last part of it reads somewhat like a draft. It's the weakest of the Laymon books I've read so far, but it still held my interest. The writing is smooth, except for one weird sc ...more

Bradley Hello fellow fantasy writer, fancy meeting you here. =)

Jeannie Faulkner Barber Hey there Charles. Boy, we spent some grand summers at Lake Ponchatrin beach, especially when the rides and beach front was booming. Also, I meant to ask you to visit my web site, jeanniebarber.com. I'm a novice writer so feel free to make any kind of suggestions, ideas or thoughts to correct it. While you're there, please sign the guestbook, too!
Thanks,
Jeannie



Charles Jeannie, Abita springs is near Covington. It's across Lake Ponchartrain from New Orleans/Metairie, not far past Covington.

Illyn, I'll check it out.


Jeannie Faulkner Barber Hey Charles, thanks so much for the add. Now just where is Abita Springs, LA? My husband and I use to splice fiber optic cable and we worked all over Louisiana...lots of little towns people had never heard of...I'm sure you're aware of that.
Blessings,
Jeannie
