I have been on a long hiatus from writing and looking to get back to it. I have been published but not paid (I had a letter published in the Tampa Tribune and wrote a series of fishing articles for a website as well.) I like to write mostly sci-fi but branch out into historical fiction and admittedly a few of my works would be hard to classify. I have novel ideas, short stories, screenplays, and even a few comic book ideas running right now. And a book on how to make wooden fishing lures. And because I am sure there are a few people out there wondering about my username this should help my real name is James Arness. Matt Dillon. Gunsmoke. Western TV show from the 60's for all you younger folks. Before my time even but I (and my wife) still get teased about it so after avoiding it for a while we just jumped right in.
