Do You Think You Will Ever Go Back?
Good news from home. My new collection of short stories is published and now available at the various online retail outlets.
The collection of about fifty short stories and poems was written over the last three decades. Most stories are based on real life experience with names changed to depersonalize the situations. A few are legitimate fiction.
As a young man I decided I wanted to write short stories like Somerset Maugham. This book is my attempt to respect his tradition of clarity and insight.
I wrote these stories because I felt a need to record the events and personalities I encountered. The events seemed startling and somehow important, at least to me. From the start I realized I was writing for my own enjoyment. I learned that writing helped me understand what I witnessed.
