This page is all about me or, rather, all about my writing.  The first three writing samples are pieces I wrote for a monthly newsletter distributed nationally to multifamily properties.  I wrote all three articles on this first sample and received particularly positive feedback for the Shakespeare piece:

Premium June-2015

In this sample of a complete newsletter, I wrote the short page one items “Houseplant Hygiene,” “Fresh Fabrics,” “Sleep Tight and Save Energy,” and “Enjoy a Guilt-Free Dip” (my first title suggestion was “Let’s Go Skinny Dipping!”).  On page two, I wrote “When the Earth Blows Its Top,” “The Big One,” and “Bring in the Bright”; on page three I wrote “Tennis, Anyone?”

May-2015

For the June newsletter, on page one I wrote “Keep Cool.”  Page two features my articles “Enjoy a Safe Summer” and “Cool Summer Side Dishes”; I also wrote “The Evolution of Zoos” on page three.

Just for fun, here are links to three of my published stories so you can get a feel for what I accomplish when I really let go.

Rawson Rix is a hard-bitten, ambitious young reporter trying to find the person who’s killing people in the city orphanage… a person with sharp fangs and ferocious claws.

The Hot Bolt Kids

The only thing more discombobulating for a teen than falling in love is realizing he’s not entirely human.

Wolf Dreams

Some kids hate going to school.  Other kids will kill to get there.

Take a look at my recent novel, a YA horror tale that will slither its way into your brain!
