Looking at the Dark Side of Life

As we all know, I am not known for writing happy stories. To me, happy stories are boring, lame, and don’t contain anything exciting.

That’s why I only write stories that appear to be darker in nature.

Real life is far from happy; with news of murders, corruption, and diseases running rampant. I usually write a rather watered-down version of real life, with cruel kids, adults who just wring their hands helplessly, and even people who have been beaten down so much by reality that they just cannot properly function in society. In my stories (including fan fiction), the good guys usually don’t win and the bad guys aren’t always defeated, as the good guys may have done some horrible things and the bad guys could have a nice side to them.

I think it’s time to quit telling our children lies about heroes and villains.

And yes, you’re welcome to purchase Harry Moffer & the Dumbest Story Ever and The Summer of Our Discontent (Season 1 of the Green Hill Manor Mystery) on Amazon.com. The Summer of Our Discontent is also available for purchase on Smashwords.

  1. Thanks for the shout-out. I’m afraid I’ve always been a romantic, you know, happily ever after and all that, but the idea of bad guys winning and the bad guy actually being the hero intrigues me. I’ll definitely be exploring some more.

  2. I have to agree. That is why I read a lot of dark fiction as well. I’m just not into regular happy romance and chicklit type books. Bring on the dystopia and complicated characters.
