Hello to my fellow disciples of masculinity! I've been a long time reader of the site, but have only recently begun "lurking" on the forum. I'm already glad I decided to become a member.

    For the short version; I'm a college history graduate from a one horse town in northeastern Maine. I grew up on a horse farm, and am an avid outdoorsman. For the last few years since college, I've been enjoying competing in cowboy fast draw and rimfire action shooting. I'm also a voracious reader, and an amateur novelist. (I'm not published yet, but I'm hoping this is the year.) I am lucky enough to have married my college sweetheart a little under two years ago.   Right now I work an office job not worth going into detail about, but I'm trying very hard to start a career in law enforcement. 

    I really enjoy this site, because it offers a well reasoned and wholesome approach to reclaiming the virile, can-do spirit of our forefathers.  The content here within offers a little hope to the future of our collective gender, and it's reclaimation from the petulant man boys and passive aggressive yes men that befoul it's proud history.  

     In closing, it's nice to meet all of you!

Welcome to AoM, Sam.

Welcome friend! Please share your novels. Do you have a website or link where we can read them? Cheers!

Nice to meet you both, and thanks for the warm welcome! As of yet, I don't have any of my older manuscripts online, the result of institutionalized copyright paranoia that my writing department taught me. I've done some short fiction with some of the characters from my novels though, I might put some of that up if folks would enjoy reading it.
