Raymond Carver, one of my favorite short story authors once described himself and his writing as being “inclined toward brevity and intensity”.
This is the approach I take when writing short stories also.
Born and raised in Arkansas, I have always had a love for classical literature, history, psychology, and other disciplines. Reading at a college level when I was 6 years of age, I have read thousands of books and led me to study both literature and psychology in college because I believe as a writer both subjects compliment each other. After school, I joined the USMC, and after the Marine’s worked for various organizations mostly within the non-profit sector helping thousands of the homeless and disenfrancised find housing, hope, or help.
I am married to my best friend, and am currently living in North West Arkansas, where I’m working on several other writing projects.
