Not all writers are successful best sellers right out of the gate. In fact, most of them aren’t best sellers ever.
That would definitely be me.
I’m Christin Haws, the broad behind Kiki Writes.
I’m more than just a writer, as most people are more than just their careers. I’m a deeply flawed, cackling, bisexual, fat girl that is probably too young to be so cynical and too old to be watching so many cartoons. I tend to do things the hard way. I’m slow on the uptake. I’m full of piss and vinegar. I do algebra for fun.
This blog features my non-existent writing career as well as whatever else comes into my brain (be thankful that it’s not EVERYTHING that comes into my brain because I write mostly horror fiction; my brain is a scary place). It’s the good, the bad, and the ugly.
And a whole lot of quirky, crazy, annoying, controversial, silly, and questionable, too.
Hands and feet inside for the ride.

Thank you for the Personal Beliefs posting. What an outstanding job of articulating your thoughts on the subject. Of course I happen to agree with nearly every word you wrote. Oops, couldn’t keep that to myself.
I really enjoyed your writing and website!
Thanks so much for the kind words, Tim. You never know what kind of reaction you’ll get (if any) when you put stuff out like this, but I always appreciate it when I get a positive response.
I’m glad you enjoy the site.
Hi Kiki, I just found this article regarding Jack Deleon’s portrayal of Marty on Barney Miller. I was a friend of Jack’s back in the 80’s and helped him with his one-man play Cagney, Impressions Of An Idol. Here’s a little interesting bit of information regarding Jack and the Marty character. After a few appearances on the show, Jack’s character started getting fan mail and it looked like he had a pretty strong following so the creator of Barney Miller, Danny Arnold wanted to give Marty his own show. I don’t know if they did a full pilot or not as I can’t remember what Jack told me, but it starred Jack as the Marty character and Werner Klemperor as his companion. The two of them owned a dog kennel/grooming business and the title of the show was…Man’s Best Friend. Unfortunately ABC said they couldn’t sell it in many parts of the country so it was never produced.
Hey, Gary! Thanks for the info! I’d never heard of the possibility of a Marty spin-off (he was a great character, so I’m not shocked that it was tried). The premise is intriguing, especially the pairing with Werner Klemperer. I would have watched every episode. Sad that it never came to pass. It would have broken some serious ground. But such were the times.
