I spent most of my youth in rural Ohio and began writing stories at an early age.

Even though I haven't had the pleasure of meeting any of them in person, I would be foolish to believe their obsession could never reach such a height. Only time will tell.(less)

Gusto Dave Hi Lucian! Thanks for your friendship.

I’m Gusto Dave Jackson Publicist for Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and I wouldn’t be worth my salt if I didn’t tout our blog and organization. Chiseled in Rock http://chiseledinrock.blogspot.com features side-splitting satire and some flash fiction for intellectual readers.

This week on the Rock: Classic Love Triangle (comedy video with animals), in Monday’s interview with agent AMANDA LUEDEKE she hints at what the next wave in genres will be, and erotic romance writer E.C. STACY offers up another warped cartoon.

RMFW has several bestselling authors such as NYT Bestseller JEANNE STEIN and J.A. KAZIMER. You have an open invitation to the “The Rock” for contests, entertainment, and an insight to the world of writing! Let’s follow each others’ blogs!
