Lady G wrote: Chapter after wonderful chapter. You did a great job on this book. And I know one thing for sure, I will hate to see it end. All in all a fantastic book. Way to go my friend. Shaotzu wrote: I must comment on the writing. Comedic writing is often the most difficult thing an author must do. Dialogue is in the top five. Combine the two and ask an author to present comedic dialogue- it's not easy. I like the work you did here and the timing was great. Keep up the entertainment. Kromag wrote: The whole story was great, you set the tone in the first few lines. It was a fantastic bit of comedy that served to further define the characters, and it was damn funny too. Boja wrote: It has been a long time since I have read something so touching. I did not know when to cry or laugh. I wish there was an emotion to do both at the same time. What a great book!! Dark Garment wrote: Excellent in every way. Great style, reminds me of David Eggers. Great emotion, great humour. That is, I must say, one of the best stories on this site. I applaud you. Lyricl wrote: FANTASTIC!!! You have kept me quite entertained with your words. Plus, that humorous only made it all the better. Highly enjoyable. Though I've yet to read all you have written, I can guarantee you THAT will certainly only be a temporary thing for me. Simply saying, I think you happen to be extraordinarily gifted at this writing thing. I look forward to checking out more of your work. Very interesting reading all the way. Keep up the great work. THANK YOU!

About the author (2003)

Always the observer, FW has spent a lifetime with the notion he is on the outside looking in. Everything gets noticed and noted, very little escapes. Needing a creative release, theatre, and all the boundless expression the stage allows, found him in his mid-twenties, catching him quite by surprise. An actor, director, producer, stand-up comic, poet, street performer, lover of the short story, her realized writing was the one thread binding them, holding him, together. Writing is the one area he feels totally at ease with.

Out on his own early in life, at times he has had to survive on sheer wit, wily ways, and wishful wisdom. Where to some life is a test, FW likens it more to a pop-quiz. Only those quick enough, creative enough, witty enough to react, are allowed to move on to the next experience, the next round.

Over the years, luck, fate, and roads traveled, have put, placed, dropped, a wealth of colorful characters in his path. He read somewhere, "Writers write best writing of what they know." So with, "Never Play Leapfrog With A Unicorn," he has decided to start at the beginning, chronicling the oft times funny, oft times emotional, oft times dramatic, yet always colorful characters chance assembled to orbit his formative youth.

So sit back, put your feet up, pull the box of Junior Mints a bit closer. The show is about to begin.
