Hello, my name is Mike. I'm presently residing in Washington state, but am from California [I'm up here working].I've recently resumed writing short fiction, and my skills are quite rusty. My style is rather simplistic, and my interest is horror. I've scanned the forums, and honestly feel a bit intimidated. Hopefully, I can get some feedback from the more seasoned members and look forward to your comments. Okay, some obligatory background information. I'm married, have two grown sons and four grandchildren. I am a retired commercial fisher and have captained a large sportfishing boat for the last several years. Presently I'm a military contractor.
