I wrote my first story at the age of six. It was a full three and a half pages long, with nearly an entire sentence per page. I still remember sitting back and feeling epic, dude. Epic.
I survived my years as a creative personality in a small-town jock high school by staying up writing till the wee hours of the morning and doing my homework on the bus. Also by sleeping through Chemistry, cartooning satirically through French class, and thus narrowly missing the honor roll… but we’re here to talk about the writing.
I began freelance writing for special-interest magazines in 2004 and editing the work of others in 2006. Since then, my goal has been simply to do the work I really love, with people I can really dig. My clients, friends and business colleagues have made my life rich. There are some projects that I really loved for various reasons, and you can see them here.
My other hobbies are writing modern hymns in the hope of redemption for my twisted soul, gardening (somebody’s got to grow the nightshade), and training dogs. My favourite sport is watching a confident German shepherd heel lovingly beside its handler and then knock someone down with their teeth at 30 mph. It’s called protection sports. If you live in a neighborhood where you get these shows for free from the K9 unit, I’ll come over and critique your manuscript in person.
At no time do I accept review products (e.g. books) for mention on this site. Any endorsements are given strictly on independent personal interest, in order to help you understand whether my curmudgeonly soul is right for you and why my children address me as The Empress of Evil.
Postscript: Is She Really Like This?
Only when I open my mouth.
