About Me I'm a native of San Francisco gone immigrant to New Zealand (<-- passport and everything) I am a professional writer and a dilettante of too many things to count. I blog on a wide swathe of subjects, and have several novels and novellas to my name (published or otherwise).
My writing career spans 40 years, but ever more so as the days and years carry on. My only goal is to free myself of the shackles and write constantly.
My partner, Mary Laine, is a visual artist of the greatest quality, and one helluva human being for putting up with my monkey ass all these years. The gods keep and protect her. Check her out. Her stuff is bad ass. http://www.marylaine.co.nz
I love writing I love the weird I love being creeped out I live for making people go hush, their eyes a little bugged, then whisper "whoa". That's my real bread and butter.
I've spent most of my life to date focusing on doing what needed doing. I have a family; I have a job; I have all the bullshit you have. And I've got the voices in my head.
I've been followed incessantly by the ghosts, gods, and daemons which linger at the outer edges of my brain. They don't stop telling me things, no matter how I ignored them. Took me a long while, but now I just listen and write down what they tell me. You know the story. Run from them, hide in the well-lit places. Eventually, we all have to call that game of hide and seek quits. Now I'm stuck in the wonderland of my own muse, and would welcome guests if and when you're free for tea.
The world looks mighty odd these days, wouldn't you agree? Why deny the madness that has gathered en masse around you. Let it in; let it ignite into fusion. In an era when we are so far from the centre, I hope my writing will give you the courage to let go, float into the open space where you've never been. There is something beyond the periphery waiting.
Come read what I've written. Take a step off that edge. How far could you fall?
