Bewildering Stories biography
I am keenly interested in Scotland’s history, customs, geography, and folk tales. My short story “Bone Brew” is based on a folk tale from Folk-Lore and Legends of Scotland, collected by W. W. Gibbings. I have elaborated on it in order to update it for modern readers.
I have had a number of articles published, mostly in professional journals. Another of my publications is Frew’s Daily Archive, a listing of significant (and insignificant) events in human history. Most recently, I had a story-picture book published: The Invisible Seam, a story of a seamstress who lived in Japan around the turn of the 20th century. Unfortunately, not long after the project was finished, the publisher went out of business.
I am a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. My critique group meets twice a month to review and critique manuscripts from the members. This is where most of the input for my story has come from.
My story is significantly influenced by The Rhode Island Paranormal Research Group, of which I am a member. We travel around southeastern New England doing investigations to contact spirits.
“Bone Brew” is a more realistic picture of the paranormal than the malicious characterizations that are all too common in the literature.
