Just after the turn of the 21st Century, a friend of mine (a fellow writer) introduced me to the "Thought Cafe," a writers group where my writing was critiqued and I was given constructive criticism. My fellow writers told me how much they enjoyed my writing. So I decided to put the articles in book form and share them. I hope you enjoy reading my stories, essays, and poems as much as I enjoyed creating them. The "Thought Cafe" is no more, but I thank my fellow writers for helping me to evolve.
