Book addict, photo junkie, and aspiring author - rewriting the landscape of reality one page at a time
I'm one of those strange people who can, quite literally, never go anywhere without a book. My wife is rather fond of telling people that I won't even walk to the corner store without a book in my hand, which is absolutely true. I can't even wait in line at the drive through without reading a page or two!
While I'll read (and review) just about anything I can get my hands on that interests me, I'm naturally drawn to genre fiction (fantasy, horror, and science fiction). It's the power of imagination that intrigues me, and the ability to tell stories about things that have never been, and might never be.
As a procrastinating author (I really need to work on that!) my short fiction has been published in several magazines, and I am currently at work on two novels, both tales supernatural horror surrounding the dead and their places of uneasy rest.
When I’m not reading or writing, I’m usually stalking around abandoned, dark and decrepit, hard-to-find places with a camera in hand, looking for that unique perspective not shared by another soul for decades . . . or even centuries. I believe every place has a tale to tell, and a unique character that can only be found in the beauty of its ruins.
