Stodghill Says So

An opinionated posting on a variety of subjects by a former newspaper reporter and columnist whose daily column was named best in Indiana by UPI. The Blog title is that used in his high school sports predictions for the Muncie Evening Press.

At the age of 18 I was a 4th Infantry Division rifleman in the invasion of Normandy, then later was called back for the Korean War. Put in a couple of years as a Pinkerton detective. Much of my life was spent as a newspaper reporter, sports writer and daily columnist. Published three books on high school sports in Ohio and Indiana. I write mystery fiction for Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine and others. Three books, Normandy 1944 - A Young Rifleman's War, The Hoosier Hot Shots, and From Devout Catholic to Communist Agitator are now available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other booksellers. So are four collections of short mysteries: Jack Eddy Stories Volumes 1 and 2, Midland Murders, and The Rough Old Stuff From Mike Shayne Mystery Magazine.

It Isn't Laziness

This old blogger denies all charges of being lazy just because he's taking a few days away from here. The fact is, the roof feel in on him Friday. Not literally, and that's fortunate, but in the space of three hours he had three short stories and a book accepted by different publishers. That's good, but it would be better if everyone didn't want fresh copies of manuscripts, worksheets and such immediately. Plus seven photos with cutlines to go along with the book. And hard copies plus everything on a CD as well. Oh yes, and as e-mail attachments, too.
Why so many different ways? Don't ask me. That's just life, I guess. And acceptance beats rejection. So when that's all taken care of this blog will once again receive the attention it probably doesn't deserve.
