I’ve always been a little squeamish about admitting that I even write poetry. I’ve never published any other than a few I’ve written into my novels. Most of what I’ve written over the years has either been lost or deliberately destroyed for fear of someone reading them and then pointing that finger at me and saying “Ha! Ha!” like that mean little kid on the Simpsons.
So I’ve been writing a few poems and posting them somewhat reluctantly over on my account at Readwave.com. The reason for this change of heart is simple. I’ve decided to go ahead and win the Nobel Prize before I pass on to the happy hunting grounds and this year’s winner for literature writes short stories, and I learned that poetry is not far off the mark as well.
If you want to take a peek, just click on the link above. There are some short stories over there as well and some of them feature characters from my Red Cross of Gold series.
