Robert Everhart | 4 comments Hello all,

I’m Rob.

During my years writing copy for a retail catalog and website, I always had a story is some state of suspension. Happy to finally put one up for perusal.

I read daily and enjoy thrillers, suspense, westerns and short stories. My favorite writing is the tight, minimalist work of Hemingway, Leonard, Chandler, McCarthy and Carver. But I can also spend hours reading Bradbury and Faulkner. Like nearly all readers, I read everything, and can find inspiration in most.

I’m an IT Analyst out in the real world and spend my days trying to explain how continuing to click a thing won’t make you any happier.
😊

I personally adore William Faulkner, and Light in August was my favorite---talk about a thriller and one that packs a PUNCH!

As far as Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises and The Old Man and the Sea, his other longer works were not as enticing, but his short works: In Our Time and Big Two-Hearted River as well as his short works were very powerful to me. Your writing must be interesting.

Robert Everhart | 4 comments Hey Sky,

I couldn't agree more. TOMATS is one of my favorite books ever. I read it a couple times a year. His longer stuff doesn't have the authority of that book. Least, not for me.

Best,

Rob

Rob, I agree with you, and I love "A Clean Well Lighted Place."
