My Blog Image
I started telling stories at a young age. Teachers called me imaginative and my parents had no idea what to do with a kid who just made stuff up randomly. Seeing Star Wars in theaters in ’77 (yes, I’m that old) and finding Tolkien’s books in my dad’s closet made it worse. And then I discovered Dungeon’s & Dragons. That creative outlet allowed me to explore my imagination with my friends – I dove down that rabbit hole and never looked back. Although I still run tabletop RPGs (and always will), publishing has opened yet another way for me to share the things that crawl out of my imagination, but apparently that wasn’t enough.

Welcome to Blogging Distracted

Join me as I talk about writing and try my hand at some serialized storytelling. And if that’s not enough, I also write for a professional blog at Clark Computer Services called The Clark Report. If you’re interested in computers, cybersecurity, or tips and tricks that are written at a level for everyone to understand, check out some of the links. I’d love to hear any comments or feedback your willing to offer. Happy Reading.
