Frank, Thanks for writing. It's great to hear that you are working towards an A.A. in English! I think your skills would be well-matched with proofreading! You have many writing projects in the works: "Shooters," the Historical Fiction novel, poems, and so forth. You must be very busy. I wanted to mention that I also enjoyed your poem "Hope's Dichotomus Nature." I'm afraid I'm not well-read in fiction. I mostly read non-fiction, biographies, and periodicals. Of course, I read a lot of poetry. Who are your favorite poets? Please reply, only if time allows. Best wishes to you, my fellow writer, Amy P.S. Your work schedule does sound demanding. But, keep writing! You have a talent for it!
