    I was born in New York just after WWII when, because of the Depression and the war, the city seemed very little changed from the 1920s. I spent a lot of time listening to my grandparents, hearing what the area was like from when they were born in the 1880s, so it was like living in multiple time periods. I grew up in the suburbs, spent the next 20 years freelancing a design career in the Midwest and Northeast then followed that career to Los Angeles.

  1. The Married Rat

    By RichEisbrouch, in Fiction. 01/28/2019 (Updated: 03/18/2019)

    The final Book in the Alan Damschroeder series, a fairly straight forward one, with only two characters and the usual lack of clothes.

    I'll be posting Mondays and Fridays till almost the end of March.

  2. Post-Humorously

    By RichEisbrouch, in Non-Fiction. 07/16/2018 (Updated: 03/13/2019)

    Writers make mistakes, especially when writing quickly. Students make mistakes, even when writing slowly. Students writing quickly often make lots of mistakes, and they get unintentionally funny. Here are some of them.

    In Germany, it appears there's a whole cult that collects these. In America, we largely have the popular British book Eats Shoots and Leaves by Lynne Truss. This collection follows both of those.

    A friendly caution: A little of these goes a long way, so don't try to read them all at once. They get less funny. Very less funny. Far less funny. Oh so less funny. You were warned.

  3. Collections

    By RichEisbrouch, in Non-Fiction. 01/10/2019 (Updated: 02/03/2019)

    This is a collection of short non-fiction pieces I've previously posted on this site. I'm slowly moving them to one place and deleting them as separate entries.

    I realize I'll unfortunately lose some readers' reactions and comments, but the move should make my writing easier to find. It's also what the site editors suggest.

  4. Crisscross Moon

    By RichEisbrouch, in Fiction. 07/11/2018 (Updated: 07/10/2018)

    A couple of young guys in the present try to figure out a mysterious legend from the past.

    Meanwhile, some years earlier, a young, Native American wife is being admired by a young warrior from another family, temporarily stranded because of an injury.

    And there are bears.

  5. St. Molly

    By RichEisbrouch, in Non-Fiction. 07/07/2018 (Updated: 07/07/2018)

    Our dog Molly, with guest appearances by Rocky, her boon companion, and Fluffy, her mentor.

    Joseph and Jesus

    By RichEisbrouch, in Fiction. 05/25/2018 (Updated: 05/25/2018)

    History, reconsidered and not meant to offend. Just an alternate universe.

  9. Obey 3. A Triumvirate of Saints

    By RichEisbrouch, in Fiction. 04/16/2018 (Updated: 05/19/2018)

    The continued adventures in sex and friendship, online and off, of Alan Damshroeder, a Cedar Rapids, Iowa, high school teacher.

    This book is different from the previous two because there are two long sections -- "Obey," and "Variation," which only contain two characters -- Alan and another man. Next, there's a conventionally written short story, "Bob," and the last section, "Other Nights," is composed of the usual short exchanges between Alan and a host of men he often never gets to meet.

  10. In The Plan

    By RichEisbrouch, in Fiction. 02/12/2018 (Updated: 04/10/2018)

    Ben Carleson, an established gay lawyer, deftly juggles a pair of complicated trials. His client: a very nice guy. His opponents: a pair of as-bright lawyers, one a bit more skilled and slicker than the other. The object: justice, as usual.

  11. Wisecracking Across America

    By RichEisbrouch, in Non-Fiction. 09/29/2017 (Updated: 02/10/2018)

    Two guys and a dog load into a 10-year-old pickup truck and spend two months driving the perimeter of the United States. It doesn't directly show, but over the course of the two months, the narrator falls in love with the driver -- and with the dog.

  12. The Reluctant Master 2. A Triumvirate of Saints

    By RichEisbrouch, in Fiction. 08/26/2017 (Updated: 09/24/2017)

    The continued adventures in sex and friendship, online and off, of Alan Damschroeder, a Cedar Rapids, Iowa, high school teacher.

    Alan says, "Sometimes I think it takes a triumvirate of saints to keep me out of trouble."

    These stories are written as exchanged e-mails and reading this way is an acquired taste. But the first book of this series, Web Guys, has a small, loyal following, so here's the second.

  13. Moorpark Palms Letters 3. Moorpark Palms

    By RichEisbrouch, in Fiction. 08/07/2017 (Updated: 08/25/2017)

    These are the original, annual, New Year's letters that I sent to my friends from 1993 to 2001. That was from two years after I moved into the building to a year-and-a-half after I left.

    As mentioned, the letters were the basis for the book, and they often overlap the same material. But they cover more time and more characters, and are sometimes funnier because they're more compressed and somewhat more rude.

  14. Moorpark Palms 2. Moorpark Palms

    By RichEisbrouch, in Fiction. 07/26/2017 (Updated: 07/26/2017)

    Jake's adventures continue in this funny book about the small Los Angeles apartment building he lives in. It's full of hot young people who spend a lot of time nearly naked around the pool. But they're often bonkers.

  15. Jake & Conor 1. Moorpark Palms

    By RichEisbrouch, in Fiction. 04/24/2017 (Updated: 05/15/2017)

    This introduces Jake, the narrator of Moorpark Palms, a funny book of stories about a small Los Angeles apartment building in the 1990s. Jake & Conor is a light little romance, once intertwined with the longer book. I broke it out because it distracted from the apartment stories.
