  • Competitions are strange. I have to think about who the judges are when I enter a contest. My take on life is a bit weird for some people, especially judges or publishers who are only interested in middle of the road stories.

    I have never been middle of the road, and never want to be. I can only look at life from my own peculiar angle.

    I wish you luck
    buena suerte
    Bone chance to Gwenn and San Cassimally for your publications.
