While long time members of the VP community have had to put up with me for
over 1 1/2 years now, and might have read the Member Profiles, including my
own, which I used to write, I figured newer members might enjoy a change to
read them too. And while everything in the above Zip File is available also
at Roland's VP Stuff, and some of it is also available at shivaSite and Digitalplayfield,
I thought that it should be offered at The Magic Of Flipperless. I won't bore
you here with my life story, since you can read at least some of it in the
item Hobbling Down Memory Lane, I would like to explain the who and what of
tiltjlp to the uninformed.
While I'm only in my mid to late 50s, I've been a writer all
my life, selling my first article when I was seven years old. I can and have
written anything and everything, and have published more of it than even I
ever expected. I have concentrated most of my adult life on Nostalgia, and
the past eighteen months on pinball. For the past 30 years I have also been
a freelance editor, and enjoy editing more than I do writing.
The above zip contains 140 of my works, which include, as I've
said, every Pinball item I've published, even one article that appeared in
PinGame Journal. More will be appearing there, but being on staff, my stuff
keeps getting shoved aside for other writers work. In the zip you'll also
find quite a bit of my poetry, much of it, but not all of it also published.
There are also a good number of Nostalgia articles, all which have been published,
and one story tilted Lessons, which requires an explanation.
Lessons is a contemporary Love story of sorts, written from
a woman's perspective, which won first place in a creative writing competition.
Lessons is the only item in the entire zip which is not for family reading.
Lessons is for adult reading only, and anyone who is a bit on the straight
laced side might want to Not read the final three paragraphs. The final scene
is very adult, shall we say. I have been blessed to be able to follow my dream,
which has also been my passion, for my entire life. I am honored to be able
to share it with you.
Do note that I have converted these files into Text Only format,
and that the original formatting has been lost, and that extra file markers
may have been added. So this is an instance where the message may be delivered
in a substandard package.
