How did you hear about Triangle Writers?

By researching writer groups at Meetup.

What kind of writing do you enjoy most?

Let's see. For pleasure reading, I most enjoyed The Corrections, The Long Tail, and a William Safire book on grammar in the past year. As for writing, I write all types of fiction for middle schoolers.

How often do you write?

I write or illustrate between two and 10 hours almost every day.

Have you been published? Do you have a website?

I've had five agents over the years, but never got published in the traditional manner. So I've begun self-publishing and will come out with my eighth book in summer 2014. My website is FREAKY DUDE BOOKS ( www.freakydudebooks.com ) and there you can find original videos, poetry, a blog manned by Dr. Crankenfuss, and Moose Hockey, our new video game.

Have you been involved with critique groups before?

Yes, on different occasions.


I'm an author and long time teacher and I write for "kids, teenagers, and maturity-challenged adults." I also maintain the Freaky Dude Books website, along with Dr. Crankenfuss, Kidlit’s Crankiest Curmudgeon.

What Daniel B. is saying about this Meetup Group

Just one meetup so far, the children's group. So far, very good. The second meeting I want to was also valuable. The meeting of January 8th was very energized and informative. Good group of people who shared a lot. Thanks to Lillian for coordinating it. The meeting of March 13 went for well over two hours. No lack of conversation or ideas or personalities, that's for sure. Fun meeting.
