Marks Place


riting has been a passion of mine from my early days when I was in elementary school and wrote an H.P. Lovecraft inspired short story. It received an A- from the teacher. The minus was because in one section I wrote "the room was torn apart as though a cyclone had hit it" and my teachers comment was "if a cyclone had hit the building, the walls would not still be standing."

Despite the critics I persevered and fortunately I have progressed some since those early days but I never lost my enjoyment of good stories or my desire to create my own.
