Richard Edward Noble
I've come to the conclusion that most of what I write can be classified under one category, Creative Non-fiction.
It is all true ... but not exactly.
When I write about things that are common to my wife Carol and me, her comment is, "I love reading my husband's descriptions of our adventures. I get the enjoyment from the adventure that I experienced and then the added pleasure of reading about the trip he went on."
And that about covers it. All the stories in this book happened. They just may not have happened exactly as I have described them.
