About Me–and My Amazon Publications


My Mini-Bio and Publications

**

Everyone calls me Grumps–I hope we become acquainted enough for you to realise how much of a misnomer that is.

Here’s a short bio for readers and writers with sore digits from page turning and typing:

I’m a 77-year-old man, married over 58 years to my wife, Janet, and together we’ve nurtured a large extended family.

My interest in creative writing started as a hobby about 20 years ago, and I’ve been learning the craft on and off ever since. I’ve made my wordsmithing journey with help from many sources. One I recommend to writers of all experience and genres is
Writers’ Village.
Bob Hembree is the main man there, supported by numerous writers (some of whom are published authors themselves), all willing to help each other. I’ve also studied under published authors Margret Geraghty, and more recently, Michael Hiebert [himself a member of Writers’ Village].

Several Kindle short publications bear my full name (John ‘Grumps’ Hamshare). There are several more waiting for editing on my to do list–including a series of ten short stories for children, two 50,000 word unfinished novels, and the first 50,000+ word unfinished volume of my memoirs.
