Writing for Grownups
(David's STORE)


Good Lord, does this guy ever stop?

Over the years I have compiled a disgustingly large collection of the written word and dozens of awards from well-meaning individuals who may have been in an altered state at the time. From literally thousands of radio and television commercials, to hundreds of short offerings on my childhood in the American Heartland, to dozens of rants and, so far at least, twenty books, I have endeavored to persevere.

While I would not consider foisting the vast majority of these sometimes mindless ramblings on you, the unsuspecting victim, I have been coerced and browbeaten into presenting a few of them. You will find some of my novels linked to this page, as well as locations where you may expose yourself to stories from my kidhood and other subjects, and even a site where you can find pieces to listen to, as well as CD’s of some of my true, as opposed to tall, tales.

Screw up your courage, dive in, and look or listen around. Just click on the header you want, and the Internet Spirit will take you there. You may actually find some things you like. To tell the truth, I hope you do.

Some years ago I was involved in a weekly radio magazine called Radio for Grownups. Among my duties on that program was to provide an audio vignette of a story from my personal experience. My stories became popular, and many of them are available for listening on heartlandmemories.com. Drop by, tangle with Baby the Bull, jump out of a perfectly good airplane, or remember your grandfather. Click the link below and enjoy some memories from the heartland.
