Joseph McCloskey. I've worked in the construction industry for over thirty years, been a manager for almost ten of those. That's a big portion of my life spent just digging a hole.
Dabbled at writing for almost as long, short stories, novels etc.
Sent a few off to agencies but always a negative response. Never got me down, if my stories weren't for everyone that was fine. I felt it was always time well spent if I was able to escape from my own world into the fictional world of one my stories, a reprieve from reality.
I leaped at the chance to publish on kindle, maybe there was someone out there of a like mind who'd find an escape of their own into a world I created, and again if I achieved this it would be a success.
Hopefully someone will find my story satisfying...enjoy
