Justin is a geek husband and father who is interested in the strange and enjoys a good scare. He's an optimist by nature.
He write in a variety of genres such as sci-fi, horror, and comedy, with a good dash of the odd mixed into the dough to add a different flavor to the stories when they come out of the kiln.
He has worked in such high profile jobs as That Guy in the Drive-Thru at McD's and worked in the very deadly job of dodging falling wood and spinning saw blades at a small wood mill, and a few other jobs. He currently stares at glass all day while listening to podcasts and audio books.
He writes, because he must.

- Today, I Told a Lie (a short story)
on Aug. 17, 2010
This piece is short but to the point. It paints a picture I can believe really happened.
The dialogue and characters are believable. I had quite a bit of sympathy for the main character.
It's certainly worth a read.

I really enjoyed Fetch. I was expecting something about a dog or werewolf, due to the title, but what I got was a different kind of foe. That was actually nice. I didn't have to worry about a werewolf going shirtless or anything.
I do like both the main characters in the story. They have very different situations and viewpoints. It makes for interesting dialog.
My only complaint was that I had to read the first paragraph or so a couple times. I'm not sure why, but it seemed hard to register what was happening. The effect, however, does not occur again in the story, and it did not detract from the book past the initial confusion.
The story poses some interesting questions that the character must come to grips with. It is not only a fun and gripping read, it gives you a few things to think about, but without being forceful about it.
This is totally worth reading. I might even give it another read down the road.
