    I am going out today. While I am out, I hope that I take the time to sit in the bookstore with coffee and read something that is cunning enough to capture my interest. If I do, I will buy it and carry it home lovingly and I will read lustfully…. and then I will mourn when I...

    I'm working on a novel now

    for my graduate program in Creative Writing. This is the first time I've tried writing something as a "real writer." By that, I mean that I want the final outcome to be professional and not have the marks of being written by an amateur. Recently, I was talking to my mentor...

    I started writing my first novel in July of

    Several, actually. One is about a good werewolf

    who hunts evil monsters. The second is about aliens playing mind games with humans. The third is about a boy with multiple personalities and his transgender friend. I hope to finish and publish all of these, and to possibly create a series out of the first.

    Perfect Stories.
