In my youth and middle age I was a soldier on the battle field, lead vocalist for several basement rock bands, professional student, aspiring writer, college bar scene observer and participant, vegetable garden tender, Bell Telephone supply truck driver, grocery store night stockperson, fast food burgher flipper and student license pratical nurse. I would also like to modestly add, the lover of several very willing young and not so young women. Those were the days. Now, nothing.

Of course during this period I was writing, writing, writing. My old notebooks are full of the observations of my previous life, all written in exposition (telling) as essays. All my fiction is based on these notebooks. I wrote several of these essays in third person (Scott Delaney) to give distance to the observations (like my hero Hemingway did with his third person alter ego, Nick Adams). Tid Bits From My Old Notebooks is the result. It's up now under "Articles" on

If I can get published so can you.
