Retired from being a poet, a pauper, a pirate, a pawn and a King. But that's when I was working. I also know every lock that's not locked when no one's around. Think that I was a soldier somewhere in the past.
If my stories aren't close enough to reality for you...just look at the nom de plume. I write to feel good and I hope that my stories make my readers feel good.
If you have any criticism please feel free to let me know what you don't like. I usually ignore any anonymous comments, whether they are praise or critical.
I am far too old to be lectured on morality. My stories are just that...stories. So don't tell me what my characters should have done or not done.
