Hello all. My name is John Franklin, but you can call me Franklin. I'm a published (poetry) writer who's currently in the final revisions of a two volume novel, Bastard of Chivalry. The first volume is a coming-of-age story centered around the main character's pursuit of love. The second volume is meta-fiction, about transcendence through art. I look forward to reading others' work and being a part of this community. Cheers.
