My name is Jack Ivey and I live in the small south Texas town of Lavernia, population 924. I am originally from Glassboro, New Jersey and I miss it more and more every day. I have been involved in all genres of creative writing for as long as I can remember beginning with writing original music and lyrics for a garage band I was a member of when I was in Junior High School.

As I grew I tried my hand at short stories writing a series of stories for small children that I handed out with their Halloween candy. I received many kind words from parents and a few teachers and was invited to read one of my stories, "What is a Gorf" to a second grade class. I believe watching the expressions on the young children's faces sewed up the fact that I would be a writer. The affect it had on me was so invigorating that I was certain writing children's books would be in the cards for me. But as it often does, this young man's heart took flight and I fell in love and found poetry was an easy way to a girl's heart. So, I became a poet, at least that is how I thought of myself and began a journey that has spanned many, many years.

I was recently introduced to Flash Fiction and found this form of writing is as exciting as it was difficult. I have since written over 250 Flash Fiction stories and published a book of some titled, "Into the Valley of my Imagination." Flash Fiction it seems opened up the door to my dark side and I have since had several poems and Flash Fiction stories published in Dark Moon Book's e-zine, Dark Eclipse.

Current Project

I am currently working on a 2nd collection of Flash Fiction stories that I intend to publish soon.
