My Writing Partner

Willam Walton, a friend for more than thirty years, is my writing partner. We share critiques that enhance both of our writings. His clear vision and perceptive insights on character development and plot dynamics in The Call hold my feet to the fire until I write better and with greater integrity. I am profoundly grateful that he shares his brilliance with me.  The characters driving his writing are always engrossing, their dialogue tightly and sparely written yet full of nuance and subtle complexity.

William has just published a story in the Honest Lie, an Anthology. It is the story of the downward spiral of a tortured soul who, despite feeling safe only behind his clown’s mask, still has a spark of yearning for connection with others. It is the faintest of sparks, though, and at his core he only wants to be Ozzie the Clown. Nothing more. This story, like others William writes, allows the reader to experience what the character is feeling or trying to feel. Many, like Ozzie, speak to the isolation we experience as individuals, how hard it is to bridge the differences that separate us, and the lengths to which we will go, or wish we had gone, to cross them.
