Shout Out
Hello to all my online author buddies of whom I've officially met two.
Jack Bates writes from a drafty old house that was once upon a time moved down a hilly road. He is an award winning screenplay writer with one option to date, a two time Derringer nominee for his short adult fiction stories, and has been included in several hardboiled, noir smacking anthologies. He also writes YA horror and children's picture books. He often runs quarterly flash fiction challenges on his blog.
