SHORT STORIES, ESSAYS & PUBLISHED MATTER -
Short Stories from subconscious intrusions into my normal thought process. Some are recent, some are old.  Some previously published material is posted as well.  Prior articles are included and can be copied. Newspaper articles that covered an entire page are difficult to copy without a commercial size scanner.

My recollection of serious reading goes back to my childhood where I spent mornings under over-stuffed down-feather comforters reading Brother's Grimm Fairy Tales.  I still have that book (published in 1938) that so influenced me to put tales and experiences on paper, something I continue to do.  My first published writings were in the Salt Lake Tribune and regional magazines; my thanks to Tom McCarthy. The first book is available on Amazon.- Successful Management 101 - The Manager's Manual.  A book of poetry and prose will be in print in 2024 - Love & Hate. The edit of my first novel - Bad Timing, is in process.
