I held a book signing the day after Memorial Day. Everybody got mad because now they can't read their ebooks through my signature. Next time bring an erasable marker, because I come with Sharpie.
I intend my books to be mildly ridiculous. They haven't matured with age. When I grow up, I want to be just like you, except for the psychotic neuropathies. You'll notice that cross-promotion is impossible for my three titles dealing with vastly different subject matter. Naturally, the only viable solution is to buy all of them. Any resemblance to people living or dead is entirely coincidental, with the exception of that one person modeled after YOU.
My first book best displays my eccentric silliness in short ... read more

“Where did these rocks come from?” asked the geology professor.
The fifty or so students ambling among the pile of stones at the bottom of the hill offered answers in tentative voices: a Precambrian ocean, an ancient river, the continental shelf ….
The professor shouted “No!” to each answer.
Then a skinny, prematurely balding student pointed at the top of the hill with his rock hammer and said in a ringing voice, “They come from up there!”
“Exactly!” boomed the professor.
That skinny boy was me. I’ve always had a flair for pointing out the embarrassingly obvious. Friends and colleagues say I have a gift for explanation, clarification, synthesis.

I have been writing on and off since I was a shy lad hiding under the bed and scribbling in an out of date diary (I think it was about my space travels). Most of my works have been either plays populated with grotesques who stumble around ruins and those odd places we forget about or epic tales of those last Roman legionaries as they falter and fall at the end of Empire.
Over the last three years, I have embarked on a series of plays which I have entitled 'The Ostraka Plays' and in which I am exploring that space where the irrational and the seductive collide. I remain fascinated by a poetics which allows an imagination to populate a forgotten nook in history outside our conventions and expectations. In these ... read more

Tammy Lee Morris
Tammy Lee Morris lives on a farm in southern Illinois where she finds inspiration in the most mundane of things. Don't let the farm life fool you though, she has a wicked sense of humor and can find a bit of darkness in anything.
One of her short stories was inspired by real-life events from her farm, which has been in the family for many years. The owner who sold the farm to her grandfather over 50 years ago was a local undertaker who used to bury his unused (at least it is hoped they were unused) caskets on the farm property.
Growing up, Tammy Lee made up creepy tales about the ghosts that could haunt the farm and her vivid imagination has served her well as a writer.
