After reading at least one book a day for over 30 years, I decided to try my hand at writing after I retired.

Once I started writing the characters took over and I tried to keep up, not always easy. Books have been pouring out of me ever since. This is what I should have been doing all my adult life, I love it so much.

A review I love

I wanted to share the latest review of 3037. It's wonderful when a reader really understands the message I'm trying to convey when writing my novels.

Jodi Picoult
“When you're different, sometimes you don't see the millions of people who accept you for what you are. All you notice is the person who doesn't.”
Jodi Picoult, Change of Heart

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“As for literary criticism in general: I have long felt that any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel or a play or a poem is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae or a banana split.”
kurt Vonnegut, Palm Sunday: An Autobiographical Collage

Stephen King
“I have spent a good many years since―too many, I think―being ashamed about what I write. I think I was forty before I realized that almost every writer of fiction or poetry who has ever published a line has been accused by someone of wasting his or her God-given talent. If you write (or paint or dance or sculpt or sing, I suppose), someone will try to make you feel lousy about it, that's all.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Edgar Allan Poe
“In criticism, I will be bold, and as sternly, absolutely just with friend and foe. From this purpose nothing shall turn me.”
Edgar Allan Poe

John Osborne
“Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamp-post what it feels about dogs."

[Time Magazine, October 31, 1977]”
John Osborne
