Smashwords Interview

What are your books about?
My first two ebooks are sort of memoiresque. Stuff culled from my life while I was living in the Pacific Northwest.
Latest project?
Well, just recently I did a split chapbook with my friend Michael Essington, author of Last One To Die. That piece was fiction, and I plan on moving in that direction for a bit. I also still do my 'zine, and I do some bloggery.
