About Me

photo my story

  • What inspired me to start this blog . . .

To begin, I apologize for sometimes writing long blogs. I keep forgetting we’re in desperate need of time – There were two reasons I started this blog; to share all types of stories without needing the “permission” of a publisher or the “acceptance” of an agent, which is a grand thing. And, to read interesting stories in endless blogs by fascinating people (I mean everybody).

  • The intended focus of my site and what readers can expect. . .

This blog will share with you short stories, free verse poetry, and extracts of longer stories. I aim to take you away to a different place without leaving your homes. My wish is to entertain and to stimulate feeling. So when you visit me every now and then I’ll try to take you on a journey; whether brief or long with the desire to make it worth your while – or at least the intent to put a smile on your day – I hope.

  • What I do and my interests . . .

I’ve taught the English language for many years and the thing I found most interesting about the work I did was the moments students would let me into their worlds; the stories they would share were amazing. I continue to teach but devote some time to writing as well. About my interests, well the thing is they are too many to mention; so I will not bore 🙂

  • What my blog’s title means and why I chose it. . .

Finally the title “In the Depths of Darkness” was chosen on a very difficult day; one where I needed a friend who was there for me. Days which are difficult can also be special. It is those days which bring our real friends closer – and no matter how far they are, they are always present when we need them the most.

Thank you for the visit and, bless you and your loved ones!
