Author Profile: Larry Roszkowiak

Roszkowiak1How and when did you decide, or discover, that you were to be a writer?

I was traveling in Europe and had a short, but interesting, series of event happen to me.  It begged to be made into a story.  I wrote the story and folks talked about it more than anything else I had ever done.   I was hooked.

What inspired you to write flash fiction?

In the 90s I rediscovered Brautigan and began to realize that some stories are short – really short.

Describe your writing process.

I have legal pads strewn about my home and they gather bits and fragments of ideas, dialogue, etc.  When it reaches a mass large enough to work with I begin assembling it into a thing.  Rewriting takes ten times longer than the initial writing.

What was the inspiration behind what was published on

This story is from a collection called “Stories For Girls.”  It’s an effort to demonstrate male thought processes.

What are you working on now?

Now I work mostly writing songs.  You can hear them at:  Larry Roszkowiak: Alternative from Weed, CA.
