To My Name

Updated on March 17, 2018

I was born and raised as a country boy in the rural Pocono Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania. I love the art of writing..

I have four published works of fiction to my name. I started to write late in life. It was as I approached retirement after working thirty years in manufacturing and then ten years in building maintenance. I wanted to do something after I retired that I could do at home and at the pace I chose.

In writing fiction I can look at things at any perspective that I want. I can choose love, hate, the unknown, the paranormal, anything that pops into my mind at any given time.

My first novel, Golden Haze, is about a middle class family and a dog named, Izzy. After the husband was involved in a car accident the powers of, Izzy came to life. She was an angel and she was amazing. The family moved from Pennsylvania to North Carolina and the house they moved into was much more than they expected. They were not alone in that house. The terror built up to a point that no one could imagine. It became more than the family could take after the unthinkable happened.

My second novel, Walk to Love, is about a man that was in deep depression several years after his wife was killed in a car accident. The man was visited by God. God sent him on a walking journey across America. He had no idea where he was going or what he would find when he got there. It was in Kansas that he sat down on a park bench to witness something that would change his life.

My third novel, Wilderness Passion, is about a man that returned home from a horrible experience in war. His PTSD was so severe that he left his family and walked deep into the forest of Minnesota. He built a cabin with his bare hands using the crudest of tools. He lived alone for year until he met two men on horseback. What would they do to change his life?

My final work, Out of the Darkness, is a short novella about something that all students, teachers, and parents should be concerned about, school bullying. I look at both side, the victim and the bully. I truly believe that all bullies are not bad people, but they have a darkness in their lives. One in four students will be bullied in school and according to the U.S. Justice Department 160,000 children a day stay home from school for fear of being bullied. I wrote to about 70 schools all across America because I thought this would be a good read for students. I was rejected every time, I think because I use God as a character in my book. I think if we got God back into our schools it would be for the better.

All of my novels are available at: amazon.com/author/larry_w_fish and all except, Golden Haze are available at: e-booktime.com. My daughter is a graphic designer and designed the covers of, Walk to Love, Wilderness Passion, and, Out of the Darkness.

      Thank you for your comment, Flourish. I am always interested in what you think. Bullying is something that worries me very much, that is why I wanted to get, Out of the Darkness, into schools, but with God not to be mentioned in schools anymore I was not able to accomplish that goal.

      The diversity of your writing themes was exciting to me, and I like that your daughter helped you with the book cover. I wish more people were forthcoming about their bullying experiences, both as victims and bullies. We could learn a lot.

      Very interesting, Eric. Thanks for your comment. I think the culture is starting to change in this country on a lot of areas. Children are a lot smarter than many adults give them credit for.

      Very interesting Larry. Larry I really do not like snitches and tattle tales, But at our school it is not something you CAN do about bullying it is a DUTY. There even seems to be a mounting counter culture in the school where the bullies are shunned instead of the bullied. Be a bully and be an outcast. Interesting area where the evolution is exciting to watch.
