Hello World. 

Pretense Press is not a business.  It is my hobby.  I write for my own pleasure.  I hope a few of you will read some of my projects including stories, travelogues, poetry, and articles.

I tried for years to get my writing published.   Most publishers and literary agents didn't even bother to reply.  One publisher did tell me I needed a reputation or at least have something already published.  I now have 7 books published.  I also have a number of poems and articles published in the US Canada and Mexico.  I still write for fun.

The following are a of some of my works.  Hope you will enjoy them.
