I read a lot, but don't consider myself a writer. I've written one story that was a sequel, simply because for some reason that story really disturbed me, and I couldn't stop thinking about it until I gave it a happier ending.
Since I first wrote this I've been working with John Wales in writing additional stories. I think that he has been the one doing most of the writing, but I have contributed with ideas, plot, dialog, and in some small portion even the writing of the stories. I feel a real debt to John in convincing me to work with him in writing. I'm not sure anyone else would think that I've improved the stories we've worked on together or not, but I've enjoyed what we've done.
