Poster boy for 2020

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: An unanticipated disaster. Try not to draw from life in 2020. Difficult, I know. You’ll really have to stretch your imagination for this one.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      I have NEVER had tomato hornworms on potatoes. NEVER. Apparently, they’ll go for tomatoes, if they’re on offer, but will settle for potatoes.
