Not Really,  poem, Issue 49, December 2019

Get to know JD...
August 19 
When did you start writing?
I remember drawing in notebooks as a young child. I’ve always wanted to be a writer. I started getting more serious about writing about five or six years ago.
When and what and where did you first get published?
I first started getting speculative work published on the Garden Gnomes website and in some pubs from Red Dashboard. The latter also published my first collection in 2014.
Why do you write?
Because I can’t seem to stop. I love stories and the written and spoken word.
Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy?
It’s the genre I read most — especially Kurt Vonnegut and Ray Bradbury. I believe what we read shapes what we write. 
Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story?
Ray Bradbury is a must. I also like Ben Hatke’s graphic novels.

What are you trying to say with your fiction?
Look around, notice. Be kind whenever you can.

If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say?

He tried to be a decent person even though he got it wrong sometimes.

Do you blog?

Yes. I blog about other authors and their work at drjreads.blogspot.com.
