Wow. The bio that was here for several years sounded like it was written by someone with a stick up their butt. I think I copied it from the Wikipedia entry about me. (And guess who >that< was written by? ~_^)
Here is a more practical overview of who I am and where I’m at.
I'm a full-time writer and editor, although my attention also wanders to a wide range of other passions: music, DIY, aviation, film-making, product design and manufacture, you name it.
The bottom line is: as Jim Morrison once said, “I’ll always be a word man, better than a bird man.”
I do love language. I love communication, sharing ideas, telling stories. I agree with Flaubert’s notion that “language is like a cracked kettle on which we beat out crude rhythms for bears to dance to, all the while longing to move the stars to tears of pity.”
I also should mention that my novel, Purgatory, was penned about a decade ago. While I stand by the quality of the art I produced, and I’m proud of the love and effort I poured into that book, I was a different person then.
I’ve come a long way on this wonderful journey, I’ve turned some pretty psycho corners en route, and I’m really happy about how the road ahead is shaping up.

Purgatory is a dystopian mystery in three acts, with elements of surrealism, horror and science fiction. It describes the protagonist's experiences in an environment he believes to be Hell, although it gradually becomes apparent that his understanding of reality may not be entirely sound.
