Author Chuck Sperati
Hi, I’m Chuck. Welcome to Writing Distracted. Among other things, I’m a writer, and this site contains the stories that crawled out of my imagination and onto the page. There are sections for my published work, writing and story blogs, and my Star Wars short stories (one of which was published in the Star Wars Adventure Journal).
There’s plenty to explore and I’m adding new content all the time. Hopefully, you’ll find something to enjoy. If you have any comments, messages, or feedback, hit me up on social media. While you’re here, take the opportunity to escape the real world, if only for a little while, and enjoy something that crawled out of my imagination.
A series of intertwined supernatural short stories that will make you wonder where the darkness ends and the light begins. All small towns keep secrets, but in Coal Ridge when the secret gets out, it begins to feed…again. Welcome to Coal Ridge.
Under the constant threat of conquerors that may one day return, these stories explore a space opera setting where a dawning era of galactic trade is being threatened by piracy and smuggling. Explore some space opera in my FreeSpace short stories.
“They migrate, eat, and make baby trolls, that’s all they do!” Inspired by the works of Tolkien, the fantasy world of Annerth has a long and bloody history, filled with monsters, magic, and epic battles between good and evil. Enjoy some sword and sorcery epic fantasy in the heroic and villainous tales of Troll War.
Published in the Star Wars Adventure Journal and once part of official canon, these stories remain in the Star Wars Legends and explore different characters and stories within the Star Wars mythos. Getting the opportunity to publish a short story in the Star Wars Galaxy was a dream come true.
