I’ve gone back to doing some autobiographical writing, my first in six years after the essays I gave to my family at Christmas, 2004. I envision a book of around twenty-six relatively short stories encompassing my life from childhood through high school. My intent is to tell the truth with a light touch…and a dash of mordant wit. My plan is to write about three essays a month from now until May, and then possibly submit them either in book form to pertinent publishers, or even in segments to magazines which might be interested. And, as always, there’s good old lulu.com if nothing else. The project is slightly nerve-wracking, because I plan to reveal some things I’ve never told anyone before, but at the same time, I’ve already had a lot of fun with the first two chapters, which deal with my shyness and reluctance to eat as a child.

STORIES FROM MY SORRY-ASS LIFE-A Memoir
My three greatest inspirations as an artist are, in no particular order, Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, and Alfred Hitchcock. Their films and their personal lives were the reason I started writing and creating back when I was a very lonely and misunderstood teenager. I am at present commencing to hammer out a career-primary or secondary-as an author/illustrator. I already have several books self-published and I've included links to where those are available. Thanks for stopping by! View all posts by RetroMan
