I hate reading predictable stories, so I don't write them. Yet the conclusion must still grow logically from the plot, or the reader will feel cheated."

Background Information

I wish someone had warned me about being a writer. I wish someone had taken the time out of their busy schedules to smack me in the back of the head. I wish I'd known just how heartbreaking it can be, or just how little I'd earn, for a huge investment in time, energy and emotion. I wish I had known about the scams and the pain of rejection before I started. It wouldn't have changed anything. I'd still be a writer, but it would have been nice to have some warning. Who am I? Glad you asked. Apparently I'm a masochist. You have to be to continue in this crazy industry. I'm a masochist with a dream. In my experience, there is nothing more dangerous. I'm an egotist. You have to be that too, to believe with all the words in the world today, you have something new to add. I'm an American man, a New Yorker, living abroad in Tasmania. That's something you don't see every day, but I guess I do. I'm an animal lover. Not just dogs and cats but all the animals I share this wondrous planet with, including my fellow human beings. I'm fascinated by insects, awestruck by coral reefs and amazed by the myriad relationships found throughout the web of life. I'm a writer. I'm a poet. I'm a husband. I'm a father... well a stepfather at least, but I treat my stepsons as my own flesh and blood. I'm a gamer. I love games, the more convoluted, the better. I'm actor and an artist too, but for various reasons, I choose not to elucidate that statement at this time. What do I write? Stories, poetry, essays, articles, bios, blurbs. I wrote what you're reading now. Amazing isn't it. These very words emerged from what's left of my mind. Absolutely amazing. If you want to learn more about me, consider professional help. If you STILL want to know more about me, check out some of my works from the links below. You just might find yourself entertained.
