I've been writing in some capacity for more than fifty years. My main writing focus as of November, 2021, is a literary non-fiction/bio on Edgar Allan Poe. In fact, I served as a lecturer/presenter at the 2002 Edgar Allan Poe Conference in Baltimore, Maryland. I also have several books published by Bear Manor Media--"The Unknown Peter Cushing" and "Best of the Bad," a series of essays on Western actor Lee Van Cleef. In addition, I've also contributed a number of articles, essays, and poetry to several anthologies in genres ranging from sci-fi, to horror, to poetry. In regards to a writing group, I would be most interested in one that focuses on American/European history (I greatly admire the ancient Greeks), biography, poetry, and the various methodologies that other writers utilize to write and do research. I'm also a great supporter of the Internet Archives! I might be either donating to the Internet Archives or possibly self-publishing a historical/geneaological study on my Scottish/Irish/Breton ancestral heritage entitled "Sons of the Grey Lad: An Historical Account of the MacGlashans in Scotland and America."
