Appropriate But Also Funny
Posted by Literary Titan
Bag O’ Goodies is a collection of short stories and poetry, sometimes real and sometimes pure fiction, covering a wide variety of topics. What was the inspiration for writing this collection of works?
I was a big fan of the movie “Creep Show” that showcases short stories by Stephen King.
I find the title of this collection interesting. How did you decide on the title of this book?
I love the format, and when I went about writing my own book of short stories (and poems) I wanted it to have a title that was both appropriate but also funny. “Bag O’ Goodies” fit the bill.
What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?
Themes of a man in his mid-30’s, to include childhood-type stories, wild tales about joining clubs, substance abuse, love, social issues, and pure fiction. I wanted to showcase a variety of themes and scenarios in the stories.
What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?
The next book is “Line Rats.” It’s a sequel to my debut novel “Cape Henry House.” I’m aiming to have it done and hopefully published by the end of the year! Stay tuned.
