Hello There!


Hello everyone! I'm new here and would like to introduce myself to you.

My name is Allen Alderman. I am 41 years old. I live in Wytheville, Virginia USA with Jenette, my wife of 19 years, and Tiffany, our 12 year old daughter. I am a Christian. I do production work at a local factory which makes advanced engineering grade plastics which are used in engines as well as in the oil industry.

In my spare time, I enjoy learning Scottish Gaelic, listening to Contemporary Christian and Celtic music, walking outdoors, playing in the snow, trying to learn to play the tin whistle and piano, working Sudoku puzzles, playing role-playing games, writing and making new friends on message boards. I do not enjoy watching sports and try to avoid watching television at all when possible.

I also enjoy reading. I like Christian fiction (like the Left Behind series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, and the Nephilim books by L. A. Marzulli), Science Fiction (LOVE Frank Herbert's Dune series, as well Jack L. Chalker's Well of Souls books and post apocalyptic books), and Fantasy (Charles DeLint, C. S. Lewis' Narnia books and Tolkien's Lord of the Rings). I also enjoy reading Shakespeare (The Tempest, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Hamlet and MacBeth are my favorites) as well as Charles Dickens (I have read A Christmas Carol MANY times) and have read the Bible through several times. I even enjoy Young Adult fiction (love the Guardians of Ga'Hoole series, Dragons In Our Midst, and The Warriors series).

I look forward to meeting all of you and learning more about you!

Take care and God bless!
Allen

I love Gaelic, Celtic, and Irish songs. But, alas, I almost never get to listen to them (I don't own any CDs, you know?).

Welcome to Writer's Beat!

Hi, Allen!
I'm out of breath just reading about your activities and high energy level. Somehow I feel you'll generated a great deal of energy to Writer's Beat. Welcome!
Cheers,
Gene.
