I notice many people make the curious decision to write their “About Me” sections in the third person. I am going opt out of the ordinary and take the dirt road. I am going to write from my own perspective.
I am 5 foot and two inches tall. My left eye is green and my right eye resembles that which is described in Edgar Allen Poe’s “Tell Tale Heart” as “…the eye of a vulture –a pale blue eye, with a film over it.” This is an honor and a privilege, as thanks to my sister, this is one of my all time favorite short stories. It did scare people throughout my childhood but hopefully I won’t end up playing the part of the old man later on in life!
I have published one novel and one short story. I have written a small collection of short stories along the vein of the one I have published and I am deciding if I might like to market them as a collection or individually. I have also written an article for Readers’ Digest and I am still waiting to hear back on it. I am just beginning my writing career and this website/blog is my first big marketing step. We’ll see how things go!
