Why Does Billy Wells Write?

When I was eight years old I loved to watch cliffhangers on TV on Saturday morning. My favorites were Zorro’s Fighting Legion, The Vigilantes Are Coming, Hawk of the Wilderness, and several Flash Gordon adventures. At the end of each episode the hero would fall off a cliff, be blown to bits in a mine shaft explosion, etc. The next week you found out how the hero survived certain death.

I loved these shows so much I started writing my own serials. Each of my adventures had six chapters, each with three segments. Each segment had a half a page of text and a picture I drew, then colored in with crayons. You can imagine how pitiful, this must have been. Nonetheless, a freckle-faced kid who sat behind me liked my stories and urged me to write more. This third grade classmate’s encouragement made me believe I had a talent for writing, and I’ve been writing ever since.

About billywellshorror@gmail.com

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, billywellshorror.com, 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 Amazon.com 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. My favorite authors are Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, John Sandford, Michael Connelly, Robert B. Parker , Clive Cussler, James Patterson, Jeffery Deaver, Dean Koontz, Edgar Allen Poe, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, James Lee Burke, Richard Matheson, Lee Child, Jack Ketchum& Jack Kilborn/Konrath.
