Robert G. Ferrell wants to be
America's Next Author!

Robert G. Ferrell

I was born at a very young age. I didn't have much hair. Later I got some hair. I went to school for quite a few years. It seemed like forever. Then I got some jobs. I didn't really like them much. Along the way I wrote a lot of stuff. Some of it was pretty funny. Now I just comb the beach all day, looking for fossils of pterodactyls that drowned.

Your story is very... different. But it well written with few mistakes. A for effort. if you have the time please read my story 'Drift Away' and leave a review to let me know if you liked it.

Since your story is going plum backwards, I'm voting you in. It takes a heap of fine intelligence to tell a tale about grasshoppers that can kick-butt against them alien cockroaches what found immortality somewhere in our galaxy.
