One thing you hear a lot about when people talk about motorcycles is freedom.  You hear about the freedom of the open road, you hear about the wind in your hair ECT.  One freedom, that Americans value most is their freedom of choice.  That’s why in the American Cruisers motorcycle club, we don’t care what you ride.  Our chapter president rides a custom motorcycle that looks like an Indian, but it’s not.  It’s a metric bike.  We have brothers who ride Yamaha V Stars, Hondas, Harleys, Harleys with sidecars, sports bikes and even a brother who rides KNM Spider.  I myself ride a 2008 Harley Davidson Road Glide.  With us, it’s not what you ride, just as long as you keep up.

Freedom is what drew me to riding motorcycles, but it was also, what drew me to books and to writing.  When you’re reading a good western, or delving into the dark regions of a horror novel, the only limits are your imagination.  It’s the same when you are writing a short story or a novel.  The characters take on a life of their own and take you to places you did not dream of when you first set out.  You create worlds that abide to no rules, but those of your own making.  So as long as I can still throw my leg over my motorcycle, turn on a computer or turn a page, I’ll keep on reading, writing and riding my motorcycle.    


One thing that I was never good at is waiting.  When you write for publication, you have to get used to it.  Right now, I am waiting for the editors at IE Novel to proof read my manuscript and send my novel, Door Number Two, back to me for my inspection.  I am also waiting for my novel, The Tale Spinner, to come out.  Otherworld Publications say that they will publish it in April of 2011.  I am also waiting for my short story, A Vacation in Hell to come out in Dead Worlds, volume 7, a Zombie Anthology.   It should be out soon, published by The Living Dead Press.  While I am waiting, I keep on writing, working on new projects.  I am getting a science fiction novel, The Battle for Europa, ready to send in and I am working an anthology containing only my stories for The Living Dead Press.  That’s about it for now, just hurry up and wait.
