About Type AJ Negative


Who am I that you, the reader, should care?  I’m AJ.  Simple as that.  I’m a southern boy growing old here in the south.  I reckon that could be considered redundant, but it is what it is.  I’m a husband, father, sometimes a writer, all pretty much in that order. 

 I write.  Sometimes I write horror… okay, most of the time I write horror.  But, sometimes there are other things that have to come out.  There are those times where darkness and creatures lurking in the shadows of a man’s heart isn’t needed.  Honestly, I like those times the most.  That’s when the true writer comes out—when something I’m not used to penning wants to be told… and I listen.

 This website has been a long time coming.  So many folks have said, ‘Hey, AJ, you really should get a website, spread your name around.’  The problem is and always has been is that I’m a behind the scenes type of person.  Do I want my name in lights?  I’d be lying if I said no.  However, I’ve always viewed posting things about myself as bragging, and I’ve never been comfortable with that.  But, now that I’ve started etching out my only spot in the stone tablet of the writing world, I figured it’s about time…

 So here we are.  You, the reader, glancing at the pages within this electronic book.  Yes, that is how I view Type AJ Negative, as a book with many blank pages that need to be filled.  That makes me the writer, one of those many folks out there who shoulder the responsibility of trying to write something that will entertain you, that will make you think, or at the very least, that you can use as bathroom reading material. 

 The name Type AJ Negative came about as my wife and I walked around a ball field as our children raced up ahead of us on their scooters.  I was joking around, as I’m apt to do and the term popped out.  I modified it just a little, adding an A in there and so it was born.

 If you have read this far, I thank you, as do all of the personalities that reside in the many rooms of my brain.  I hope you stick around a while, read about what’s happening, check out a free story or two.  Leave a note, if you will.  Again, we all thank you…

    Hi, old friend. I just bookmarked this site. I hope to spend time browsing and reading some of your things. Yes, I can imagine that you are a behind the scenes person and that you are not given to bragging about yourself. This rings true to me as characteristics of an AJ that I particularly knew two decades ago. I wish you much, much success in your writing, your family, your life. With love, Robin
