Author bio

It is Dos de Mayo (May 2nd). I hope that everyone had a nice April and got to see all the daffodils and tulips. May your imaginations be filled with lots of inspirations and fun and interesting ideas. Happy writing! I'm a 53-year-old man (54 on July 7th). I was born in a U.S. Army hospital in southern Germany. I currently live in Pennsylvania. I first tried writing stories when I was 15, but to say that they weren't that good is probably being entirely too kind. I tried writing stories again when I was in college (in the late 1980s and early 1990s) and they were okay. I still had a ways to go, apparently. I kept writing, trying to improve as much as I could. I've also written poetry over the last 30 or so years, but mostly the prose kind (a story in poem form), not the rhyming kind. I love to read and have happily been a bookworm since I was in elementary school. I prefer to read science fiction, fantasy, literature, and nonfiction. Btw, I submitted a short story this evening (Feb. 27, 2021) and, within minutes, it received its first like. I'm really not used to being this popular. I'm very thankful for the encouragement and support I've received at this website. Without it, I seriously doubt that my writing would've improved as much as it has since late July 2020. I've tried to reciprocate as much as I can and as often as I can. Yes, I can play piano and keyboards. If you want to listen to an improvised composition of mine, feel free to go to YouTube, look up my name (Philip Clayberg, I mean) and "A Bremerton Christmas". The slideshow consists of photos I've taken in the Puget Sound area over the last 10-15 years. If you want to know more about me, just ask.
