About the Author

“Life is a journey, a trek through unknown paths that twist and turn without warning. Will you join me on my journey along the way?” – Norman Cooper

Welcome to the official blog site of Norman Cooper, partially well-read and rarely published author, father of four, and husband of one. The posts within cover a range from the silly to the serious, from literature to popular culture, and may touch on politics and religion. The author respects all points of views and welcomes polite and respectful feedback from all readers.

Thanks for stopping by.


20141101_151628Though Norman Cooper calls Maryland home, he was born in central Texas during the late 20th Century. He lived for a short time in the “Lone Star State” before his family relocated to Oklahoma and later Michigan.  After a short stay in Wolverine Country, his family returned to the land of his birth where he lived for more than twenty years.

Norman is an active member of the Internet Writing Workshop, where he gives and receives guidance from other would-be writers, and some that have been published, too. In addition to writing and critiquing, he also volunteers as a co-administrator on the Practice Writing list and helps out as content manager on the IWW Website and blog.

When asked what’s on his bucket list, Norman said:”To spend a considerable amount of time traveling, sightseeing, and pub crawling in the UK and Ireland. After I have seen everything I could ever see, and done everything that I could ever do, and eaten everything I could ever eat in the land of my ancestors, I would spend my final days reading and writing in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.

“CHANCES by Norman Cooper…is your chance at an early preview of his writing in a 4-star flash-fiction book.” – Rick Bylina, author of All of Our Secrets, A Matter of Faith: A Detective Stark Mystery, and Poems for a Platypus



  1. Hi Norman~~~

    Just got your welcome crit of DEADLY TEASES. Many thanks.

    You’re wise to polish your skills on flash fiction and short stories. There’s a market for them if you compile a bookful of related stories, that is, stories that have a common theme.or topic.

    With that in mind, I’m putting together a collection of shorts about being a soldier in the rear area of France in ’44 and ’45.

    Keep writing. Regards, Warren

  2. I like learning more about my friends…thanks for sharing.

  3. Skip I have faith that one day you will be published and when you do become a famous writer don’t forget where you came from. I am also thinking about writing for a living. There is so much knowledge that I would like to address in the world to others. The hardest part seems to be just starting the novel. Maybe you are right short stories are a great start.

    1. Thanks, Lori. The only advice I can give is to start writing and you’ll quickly learn that there is as much to learn, about the world and about yourself, as there are lessons to be taught. Good luck on your journey and may our literary paths cross one day. Maybe we can do a book signing together in North Carolina. That’s not presumptuous at all, is it? 🙂

  4. Enjoyed your FP post. Something about the voice in the post. So I came over to find we have the same theme, the same header, I live in Houston…enjoyed reading your short stories. I have a story too, you may enjoy. It’s in my archives around Feb of this year “Jimmy Lee, The Story of an Outlaw.”

    1. Howdy, neighbor! Same theme and header? I hope you don’t have the same Dylan Thomas quote, also…thanks for reading, I’ll check out your post.

  5. Great blog, I look forward to reading more of it.

    1. Thank you and thanks for following me.

  6. I’m also commenting to make you understand of the perfect experience my cousin’s daughter encountered reading the blog. She mastered too many things, including what it’s like to have an ideal coaching heart to have other people easily have an understanding of various complicated things. You truly exceeded visitors’ expected results. Thank you for presenting such practical, trustworthy, revealing and also unique thoughts on your topic to Ethel.
