My name is Ricky. I like to write. This site is where I publish some of my stories and poetry. After years of doing what other people told me to do, this is so liberating.

I love it.

The Posts include prose and poetry and haikus. If you want to browse some of my fiction, there are tasters (and a few full stories for free) on my Portfolio pages. You can get these and more in the collected stories from Amazon via the links on the Books page.
