Life changes, and so does this blog and my writing style. I left evil Las Vegas and gave up the shroud of anonymity, so I must be nicer than ever. This was my test cell, if you go backward in this blog, you will see many things that are uncool and raw. I came real close to deleting this blog, but realized that I cannot erase the past nor my experiences. This was the beginning of the golden road for success and every foul word posted here was a stone set in the path.

Still, my rowdiness must subside. It is time to act like a real author, because I am a real author. Here is a link to calmer waters, the real Big-J.

Below is the old “About Page,” the one I have evolved from.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

I am a fiction author–soon to be four times published. It isn’t a lot, but fiction is a tough gig. If you know my name, you are among a very few. This is my test cell, this is controlled mayhem.

In all honesty, I’m trying to present myself as a softer, kinder person….but it isn’t working. I’m still a jerk.

I’m going to end up the Russell Crowe of the literary world. Long sigh…..

Sorry if I’ve offended you. I just couldn’t help it; I had to say whatever it was to prove it can still be said. If you are in the U.S., please be grateful we still have this one Right left–the ‘Freedom to talk Smack.’ I do not choose a side in politics, but I do side with honesty, and that is why I am a jerk. I do not claim to be right, I’m wrong too often to be worth much salt. But my fiction is pretty good. It is much better than I am. Thank you for showing interest in me, even if I’m a jerk, sometimes.

Cast of Characters (and clowns)

Big-J = your less than humble host

C-Jane = the brains of this outfit. ‘C’ stands for Calamity

Cuzz Jo = Cousin of Big-J

Sister Calamity = C-Jane’s sister

RJ; Best Man for Hire = he’s a lot like an assassin, but for weddings only

K-Dog = Lawyer by day, Rapper by night

Irish Smurf = one of Big-J’s friends since before the ‘Big’ part happened to J

#1 Fan = Nice, like Kathy Bates, but without the sledgehammer

Ping, Son of Pong = Game developer married to my #1 Fan

Mr. D = the poor married fellow who no one ever sees

      I’m sorry Greg,

      This is so bittersweet. I appreciate the appreciation (how’s that for sharp wordiness?) Unfortunately, everything before July 2011 was intentionally deleted. I had many posts of poor taste and decided that wiping them all out of existence was the most godlike solution. It was time for renewal. It is almost time again.

      Best Regards,
      The driver of the bus.
