About the Author: Gary Paul Corcoran

Being Irish and Christmastime In Kindle Ð born but a few miles down the road from Twain s old mansion, it seems only natural that I would have been bitten by the writer s bug Being transplanted from the clapboard, Courier Ives New England of my youth to the cookie cutter, stucco subdivisions that bulldozed the orange groves of Southern California out of the way in the s, I never did and never will feel entirely home here in the LA area Without going into the reasons why I ve left and come back several It's Always ePUB Ò times over the past forty years, Watch Hill, Rhode Island is my next intended destination Though I see hearth and home as merely a base from which to launch the next adventureSpeaking of adventure, I was rebellious to a fault as a young man and completely bought into the folk music coffee house idealism of the early sixties Between that and the psychedelic era that followed, no way was I going to fight in Vietnam, which left me as a man without a country for several years and indirectly led to my Always Christmastime In PDF/EPUB æ incarceration in a Mexican prison From such colorful experiences, I have drawn many a tale and can only think in looking back, thank god for the unexpected life Had I gone forward in a straight line, there would have been little of which to report I am also thankful that I blossomed late as a writer Had I written much early, it would have been, to turn a phrase, wasted on the young Now, my god, I don t know how I ll have the time to tell all the stories of how I arrived here I don t fear death, but I d like to see , and hope only that my fingers stay limber Oh, one last thought, what a fortuitous thing that I dreamed of being a journalist as a boy and took typing lessons To watch depictions of writers who had to hunt and peck, I cringe.

    This is a quick read and a cute story It has some dark moments and a fun twist at the end.The author did an excellent job of character development in this novella I would recommend this story.
