M. K. Theodoratus, Fantasy Writer
My fantasy reading took off when I discovered the L. Frank Baum Oz books at the library. I loved his female characters being the strong, sensible people in his stories. The strange creatures and lands just added to the fun. Building a personal library started, shortly after, when I discovered you could buy used paperbacks at the used hardware store my father patronized for tools and "shoot-em up Tonys" aka westerns. Other kids bought clothes. I bought books.
I've written off and on all my life, mostly non-fiction. Now that I'm retired, I write fantasy when I'm not playing solitaire or mahjong. I now live in Colorado with my old man and two cats.Type your paragraph here.

Welcome to My Fantasy Worlds.
Magic and fantasy have been part of my life since I can remember. Only difference: today, I share the fantasy stories I make up with others. I hope you like the samples of my Andor and Far Isles Half-Elven tales and buy one or more.
I often answer back if you make a comment.
Pretending something or other has been part of my life ... like forever. I even pretend when I'm trying to go to sleep. Fortunately, the scenarios aren't part of my stories.
I started telling stories about an imaginary friend began playing with me on the front porch when I was about three. By the time I was in sixth grade, I was reading any story connected with magical worlds, ghosts, witches, and things paranormal, though I didn't much care for vampires. Still don't, with few exceptions. Then, a teacher introduced me to the idea that I could write down my made-up stories instead of just acting them out.
Yeah, I've done the fantasy story thing since an early age. After playing with Jerome as a little kid, I discovered the world of comics, thanks to a family friend who gave me his after he read them. I begged, borrowed, and traded every comic book I could lay my hands on ... even Tales from the Crypt which I hid from my mother.
