WELCOME TO MY DIRECT-TO-YOU WEB SITE!
The seed of my creative interest in writing blossomed at age five, and the love affair is stronger than ever at 66. Along my journey this lifetime I have experienced many varied things, some good and some heartbreaking; all remain of intimate value to me. You see, I like to borrow ideas and impressions from what I've gone through and, using my training in other media, I re-fashion them into new ones.
I find that the rules and fundamental data of different artistic expressions also apply to writing. I am reminded of the words of my fine-art instructor, Larry Gluck, Founder of Mission: Renaissance Art Academy in California, who told me to "draw what you see." These days, when deep inside of a new story, I fashion with words what I "see." People respond to it, telling me, "I can really picture what you wrote... you paint pictures with your words."
Dear Reader, YOU have the power to render me speechless at times. Your many positive responses inspire me so much that I have no words for what to say in return. Writing is such a humbling occupation in that way.
I write for YOU, my reader; without you I am nothing.
My eclectic mind aims to mystify, entertain, educate and enable both you and me. Within my body of work you'll not only find ways to sell better, but also a story of how one hungry German boy, Friedemann Paul Erhardt, became an American pioneer and television icon. Chef Tell overcame almost insurmountable odds stacked against him from the night he was born -- he was only looking for love and understanding -- until the day he passed unexpectedly.
On the other hand, the history of the University of South Carolina Gamecocks baseball program is a study of America and South Carolinian culture almost as much as it is about college baseball. While over 100 years of squads of young men grow into manhood under the pressures of performing on baseball diamonds, and teamwork is guided by an assortment of uniquely talented and remarkably different coaches, economic booms and busts push the tolerance of the nation's people back and forth in several emotional tugs of war that parallel the seasonal fortunes of the Gamecocks.
No mistake: there are racial overtones throughout the South right up to today, but when the Gamecocks finally take the grandest prize, the national championship, their hero is a quiet young man of color, Jackie Bradley Jr., also the College World Series Most Outstanding Player. Asked his plans on the sun-setting Omaha diamond, Rosenblatt Field, where his teammates are still shouting with joy over their win, Bradley replies, "Play hard and help this team win another national championship." And the Gamecocks do win in the next year: they are national champions in back-to-back seasons.
My poetry, if nothing else, soothes and conjures simple, moving and thought-provoking images.
Anyman Dreams of Love Everlasting, a historical romance novel, speaks to the age-old feelings and questions that every man feels toward the opposite sex. Through Richard Anyman's daydreams and nightmares we learn to pull ourselves up by our bootstraps, if we are to find the woman of our dreams. However, none of us is an island, and neither is Anyman; the very sex he understands least also leads him toward his Promised Land, but not without a rollicking roller-coaster ride of mixed emotions, and vivid relationships and scenes that add up to thought-provoking conclusions.
But I think that's how you like it... right?
I'll keep this short. I prefer to let my books speak for me.
I hope you find something here to your liking. And if you do discover some interesting entertainment or a story that satisfies YOU, let me in on your secret. We're all friends in here!
