Welcome, and Thank you for stopping by.
"The first 'fear' a writer should abhor is developing the habit of turning away from the Inferno before his eyes.
"All artists share in common one DNA trait: the foreboding thrill of looking at the unpleasant, the horrible, the unsettling, the ugly, the dangerous, and the eternal coupled with the desire, the passion, and the urgency to report such disquietude to those too afraid to look for themselves.
"When a writer looks away, when he no longer is compelled to write what he sees and feels no matter how revolting, he has ceased to be a writer. He's transfigured into the fearful symmetry of static flux, a false sense of living, of purpose, and of fulfillment--just like everyone else.
"And when a writer succumbs to the mediocre memoir of the mundane, he commits the greatest of all writing sins: boring the reader." Larry Mike Garmon

My short story "A Little Too Much Salt" will be published this fall in The World of Myth Magazine. I'll post a link as soon it is up. In the meantime, you can read some other excellent stories at TWoMM.
Presently, I'm working on two tales.
The first is NEVЯLAND, a post-apocalyptic tale about 13-year-old Laynie Price and her struggle to survive in a world where every over the age of 18 has disappeared--and anybody turning 18 disappears as well. Click on the link to the left to follow the NEVЯLAND saga and to like on Facebook.
The second book is in the researching and outlining stage: Popinjay, a dystopia about a society in which each fetus is given a hormone inhibitor to prevent the fetus from developing a sexual identity. Humans are born without gender and undergoes sexual identity training and testing for 12 years. In the 12th year, each child is placed in a special academy in which the child undergoes more intensive training and testing. At the end of the academy, each child must then choose one's sexual identity. Each child then enters a chrysalis stage in which the transformation to the proper sex then takes place. But happens if one emerges from the chrysalis and has been transformed into the opposite gender one had chosen? Click on the link to the left to follow the Popinjay saga and to like on Facebook.
