Butcher by day, writer/reader/dreamer by night. I've always enjoyed the freedom that creativity has provided me through the years. Writing tends to sway from passion to hobby much too often for my liking, but that is part of the freedom it provides. My pen and paper will never judge me and that keeps me sane.

    The Mouse That Shunned Obedience was nothing short of brilliant. This piece was dripping with detail, bringing the characters and the Roarin' Twenties to life in a big way. Max's development from page one was methodical and effective. Having just met the character, the reader is able to slowly gain a sense of the burden Max is carrying with him and ultimately find sympathy... read

    The Sage of The Full Moon was an engrossing story. Following the musings of a farmer, it painted a very detailed picture of the farmland that was easily brought to life. The story found great success by attaching itself firmly to the farmer's perspective and never losing sight of its intentions. The dialogue lent itself very well to the subject matter and helped the characters... read

    Nice Boy was a very entertaining read with an ending that came out of nowhere. Smoothly written and executed well, Nice Boy is solid from beginning to end and is a must-read.

Dialogue is great and the characters are easy to... read

    I appreciate your review of "The Mouse That Shunned Obediance".
    I must add that your assumption regarding the blank pages is false, and you would probably be surprised if I would reveal that nothing was sketched before the actual writing, ergo word limitation was not something I kept pondering upon.
    "I'll make the phone ring," I said to myself. Two weeks later, the story was complete.
    The ending, well, I am a bit disappointed with that myself. I confess and tell you that I rushed it, because my jam-session had achieved such a pleasing shape. I would go to sleep after writing a bit, not having the slightest idea what would happen next.
    As for making it a novel, well, I am currently planning one, and it doesn't happen in the twenties, but I would love to see it as a movie. I picture every scene I write like a movie, as if I were the audience.

    Thanks for that, Cory. Glad you found joy in reading it.

    You might be interested to know that it was initially a monologue for theatre - for an anthology of monologues about people and their experiences with wolves - but it was all too short ultimately. (The greener undeveloped version if this story is on my page too, with a different tile.)

    I hope Triggerstreet paves great avenues for you.
