Shit Happened


Once upon a time I was sweet and innocent. Then, shit happened.

First I was bitten by a rabid chipmunk while hiking in the Adirondacks. I couldn’t receive medical attention before the madness swept over me and I started foaming at the mouth.

Somehow, my Boy Scout troop leader fed me an ancient root that only grows in the deepest jungles of darkest Africa he happened to have brought along on the hike with him just in case such one of us was bitten by a rabid chipmunk, which allowed me survive the horrendous fever in the bush.

It wasn’t long after that I lost my taste for the normal food my mother had put in my backpack. The three guys I’d gone hiking with began to look pretty appetizing and before we returned to civilization, I became a cannibal and pulled a Timothy on them.

When I returned to school weighing fifty pounds more than I had when I went hiking and was unable to say what had happened to my fellow campers, nobody wanted to include me in any reindeer games after that.

I was always a wild and crazy guy, but now I’m bouncing off the walls.

I have written 171 short stories so far in my quest to exceed Ray Bradbury's 400 short stories. It goes without saying it will be an uphill climb. My web site,, includes sample stories from all ten horror story collections. Since reviews are the life's blood of every author, I would greatly appreciate a review of any of my books on and hold anyone who does in high esteem for all eternity. Stephen King is my favorite horror writer, and I admire what King has accomplished in the horror genre in terms of movies made from his considerable volume of work. My Coffeesmoke channel on You Tube has amassed over 2,600,000 hits, mostly from my "Dead Celebrities" videos. I love movies and had seen over 1,500 by the age of 13 when there was snow on 13 channels after midnight. My favorite horror movies are Halloween, Night of the Living Dead, and the Evil Dead. My favorite movie of all time Is Frank Capra's It's A Wonderful Life with James Stewart.
