I, the Writer
Hello there. Come in, and feel free to stay awhile! Just put everything back where you found it when are finished.
Connor Ludovissy is a college student and an author. He writes short stories that can be found online, dabbles in journalism with The Cento, and, like everyone, is working on a novel or two in his free time.

Why do I write? Because there is much demanding to be written.
As much as I hate to have a cop-out answer . . . everything. I know, that's horribly unsatisfying, but it would be even worse to list here a hundred or so authors who may or may not have had any impact on me. I could be pretentious and say McCarthy and Faulkner (maybe slip in Kerouac to appeal to that crowd), but honestly I enjoy Koontz and King just as much (and often more).
I have the unfortunate (but sometimes useful) need to work under stress. If I have a month with no deadlines and no pressing issues, I flounder, a fish out of water. As a result, I schedule relentlessly.
Connor's stories have been published on several websites, such as QuailBelle and LitFestMagazine, as well as in the annual publication Vantage Point.
A novel not yet ready for your eyes. Dr. Halloway's journey has a long way to go.
Dogs. I love people, but if I'm choosing between a dog and its master, I will almost certainly choose the dog. As a result, they often sneak into my fiction unbidden (but welcome nonetheless).
