I grew up listening to stories out in a disappearing countryside. Family and friends would congregate around old wood kitchen tables, and fueled by cups of strong tea or glasses of cold beer, the stories would emerge. I’d listen to the rueful or joyous laughter and try to stay out of sight so as not to be sent to bed.
In that tradition of countryside laughter used to remember the important things and rail against changing worlds, I’ve always told stories as well.
Now, I write them to share with you. I invite you to consider if these words and worlds are where you want to live.
My goal is to give readers the real-life research and my fictional alternatives.
I challenge you – the person reading this – to change our future to something better.
About D.Frank in Real Life
D. Frank will speak for himself but his alter-ego is Doug Green, a full-time writer, living, and writing on an island off the city of Kingston, Ontario in the thousand island area of Canada.
Is D. Frank Your Real Name?
Actually, it’s not. My kid brother and I shared a first initial and last name and his middle name was Frank.
He died early in life and given he was a writer, editor, and a television newscaster, I used his middle name – Frank – to keep him alive in my mind. We’d continue having more adventures together.
On a business note: I needed a pen name because there was already another Douglas Green writing science fiction.
I have three gardening websites and one personal blog site
Another Fiction Website
Fantasy is here using the pen name Christina Duncan Stewart. (my mother – see the about page there for why I used her name)
