After many years of reading other people's work, I decided, in 2003 to try my hand at writing my own stories. The overwhelmingly positive feedback and constructive criticism I have received has encouraged me to continue. Indeed, over time, I have become bolder and have begun writing novel-length pieces.
The feedback I received for Prototype Ten and Getting By encouraged me to try to get those stories into print. I'm still waiting to find out whether or not that will happen. Whether it does or not, SOL will continue to be my favorite place on the web. You, the readers, have helped me grow as a writer, and I will not forget that.
