While majoring in Psychology and Theater at the University of Florida, I minored in English and Philosophy. These four disciplines have been the center of my passion for the past twenty years. During my professional career as a medical technologist, I have had the opportunity to study the lives and personalities of thousands of people, and have been able to spend a great amount of personal time writing both prose and poetry. Traveling and studying religion and philosophy in depth for the past seventeen years has led me to editing published books in the field, as well as writing an optioned (but not produced) television series for Indian television. I have written two novels, both are on file at the Library of Congress: _Beyond the Cave_ (also under the pseudonym, Thomas Johnson), and _The Time Dragon, Book One: An Angel's Death_

I knew a nice street-woman like this some years ago, myself. So, here's what I'd... read
A review of Ghost Chasingby OmarF on 09/13/2008Yeah, I liked it. Life is indeed a ghost chase. We look for "the other" everywhere we go, hoping that somehow that one face will be a 100% match. Eventually we learn it's a hoax, but before that it's an unshakable, sometimes comic, sometimes tragic, sometimes pathetic, urge. Your story captures this very well in Charlie's quest for the face behind that dark, sexy name. I found... read
