"The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter - it's the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning." ~Mark Twain

I am a writer with over twenty five years of writing experience. I have lived what some would consider more than one lifetime and have gained a wide range of knowledge and life experience which I have an aspiration to share through generous application of the written word. Prior to becoming a full time writer , I've worked as a school teacher, truck driver, equipment operator, ranch manager , HIV/AIDS counselor, market researcher, short order cook, long order cook, bartender, bouncer, taxi driver, explosives handler, telemarketer, suicide counselor, crisis counselor, Halfway house manager, rock n' roll roadie, dispatcher, convenience store clerk, desktop publisher, office manager, secretary, industrial safety consultant, literacy instructor, industrial trainer, roughneck, construction worker, and, US Army soldier.

I have come to a point in my life where I fervently embrace pacifistic principles, Christian certainties, and Humanistic honesties as a means to the end of accomplishing emphatic enlightenment in my life. It is within these beliefs and values that I seek and hope to attain inspiration for the writing I make available.

I have been published and fervently wish to publish more. I am available for hire and can be reached at tlloydreilly@yahoo.com. Examples of my writing can be found by following the links below.
