Although the Ron and Bob Stories are not written about the author and his brother, the author and his brother are identical twins. They’ve had a lot of people mix them up and have many “twin” stories.
R. Fulleman is a certified SCUBA diver, but he has never actually dove on the USS Mississinewa at Ulithi. He does have several friends who have and has taken portions of their adventures to include into Faces in the Flames: A Ghost Story.
I’ve always liked writing, ever since I was in Junior High. One day, my wife came home (she is a Teacher Librarian) and told me how a struggling reader at her school needed a very low-level book, but was embarrased to be seen with one of the “little kids” books she had available. It was then that I decided to write a book (It turned out to be a 3-book series) that would appeal to Middle Grade readers, while being only at a 2nd grade reading level. Also, I designed the covers with age appropriate artwork. Teachers and Librarians who have passed along success stories from their students being finally able to read an entire book spurred me on to want to supply more books that are easy to read.
Be a reader before you become a writer. Reading will give you insights into styles and genres you may be interested in using in your writing. After that, just write all the time. It doesn’t have to be perfect the first time you put something down on paper (or a computer screen), in fact, it is sure not to be. But, as I always say, it’s easier to edit something that to come up with the idea in the first place. So, modify/edit until you get your writing to where you want it to be.
Faces in the Flames: A Ghost Story was written at a 3.5 grade reading level in order to make it easier for teens and young adults who might be struggling to read at their grade level. It’s an ideal book for MLL students, too. In spite of the lower reading level, the book has found a lot of adults, young and old, who enjoy the story.
