Vulgus: Profile

I’m a dirty old man in my mid 60s. I’ve been married for 40 years. To the same woman! I quit school after the 8th grade and joined the U.S. Army. I retired from the Army after 20 years, having served two tours in Vietnam, an abbreviated tour in Italy, two tours in Germany, a tour in Korea and Hawaii. I also spent 8 years at Ft. Sill, OK. It seems that once you’re assigned to that installation it’s all but impossible to escape.

After retiring from the Army I became a Rural Mail Carrier. I retired from that onerous job after 20 years. Now I’m a pornographer. When I’m not writing dirty stories my wife and I do as much traveling as we can.

I have over the years acquired and been forced to dispose of several large collections of pornography. While I enjoy a picture of a naked woman as much as the next guy I’m more interested in the books. I've been influenced in my writing by some of the internet authors that have preceded me. But my primary influence has been my rather large collection of Greenleaf Books.

I’m an atheist and a Liberal Democrat. I was born and for the most part raised in the great state of Vermont, the most liberal state in the union. I often take swipes at religion and conservatives in my stories. I’ve ruffled some feathers in the process. But I’m just as entitled to my free speech as they are to theirs, though some people don’t seem to think so.

I like cats. I used to like dogs. I grew up with them. But 20 years as a mail carrier has changed my relationship with them. I enjoy photography. But except for my writing my first love is for books. I’m a voracious reader and I can’t seem to get rid of a book. Not even the ones I didn’t like! I have books all over the house but my pride and joy is my collection of non-fiction WWII books.

I believe that’s me in a nutshell.
