Finally back in The Bay, sun soaked, bird song, writing away.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Back when I was obsessed with poetry, there was this state of mind when writing which was timeless. I would think little time had passed afterward, but I had lost so much time, and the thing was that it was irrelevant when my mind was occupied with the realization of this concept into word combinations. The image when finished, the play of images, was captivating, something beyond authorship. Poems were found objects for me.

As for writing science fiction, I found it far more intoxicating. It's pretty much the same except vast in comparison. As the novels neared completion I felt like I was bursting with creativity as my mind was absorbed with the generating of another world and in awe of all these ramifications. The joy of writing is in witnessing the scene, whether it's in a poem or a novel, whether writing it or reading it, the movie that is projected by the written word is a joy to behold, don't you think?
What do your fans mean to you?
When someone has appreciated what I've written, and I can see the faces of some other writers actually who loved my poems, I feel like I'm home, you know. I don't mean that I feel like I deserve the approbation or praise or anything like that. I just mean that I love to share the experience I get looking at beautiful art, moving art, breathtaking creations. A lot of the poems I've written I'm not the biggest fan of myself, but someone else likes that one and I'm happy for them, I put some of those poems that embarrass me in there anyway because I discovered that some people found more in those poems than I did. I couldn't begrudge friends that look in their eyes, that light.

I like Stereolab. She likes Kanye. But it turns out we both love Sonic Youth and boom, we hit it off, we're raving to each other about this song and that. I'm my greatest fan, I love that club, the more the merrier. I'm a fan of film, comic books, etc. A fan is a lover of human creativity, so I'm a fan of fans, of fanning, so to speak.

JMD's latest and last book of poems provides once more beautiful gems aplenty, this time imbued with a new strength and warmer comfort in spite of it all. In this collection of poems the poet's greatest achievement is realized; conveyed within via mood well coined the very personal and individual joy of fascination.
Something I Wrote the Other Day
Price: Free! Words: 5,970. Language: English. Published: December 6, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Themes & motifs
The last book in a series of creative writing experiments that sought to clear up the clutter of poetical and existential impetus. Containing experimental essays, slice of life short stories, contemplative poetry, and cathartic illustrations. It reads like an art gallery, confronting, baffling, disturbing and beautiful. Something I Wrote the Other Day is a poet's shrine to the creative spirit.
Dirty Pure
Price: Free! Words: 6,550. Language: English. Published: November 30, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Themes & motifs, Fiction » Graphic novels & comics » Romance
'Dirty Pure' is an illustrated poetic memoir. Strangely compelling, the overly loquacious stream of neurosis takes the reader on a boat ride to crazy town where one is confronted by anxious ultra-analysed, near-issues that border on full blown psychosis before being blindsided somehow by the bizarrely captivating doodles drawn by the poet himself. It's so weird and abstract and yet addictive.
Philosophy for Depressives against Empirical Vampires
Price: Free! Words: 2,950. Language: English. Published: November 26, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Themes & motifs
Philosophy for Depressives against Empirical Vampires is, on the whole, JMD's finest work yet. The style is more consistent and many of the poems exude subtlety and maturity. Poems otherwise are meditative. His brand of magical realism, populated with cameos from classical deities, places his modern narrative in the sphere of universal significance for Depressives everywhere in need of an updraft.
Jason and the Golden Thesis
Price: Free! Words: 3,350. Language: English. Published: November 23, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Themes & motifs
Jason and the Golden Thesis is somewhat tongue in cheek. For those critics fighting on the front lines, no firing squad yet, please. Moments of modernity dominate many of the metaphors, as in the melodic A & E which effortlessly glides between free verse, subtle usage of alliteration, near rhyme and true rhyme whilst seamlessly gluing together imagery from Math, Theology, Pop media, and Biology.
Poems by Metazoan
Price: Free! Words: 2,240. Language: English. Published: November 14, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Themes & motifs
Defined by minimalist expressions of haunted disenchantment questing for those legendary molecules of hope. 'Poems by Metazoan' projects that searching variety of inner life despite the grubby film of reality. The poems are very personal paroxysms. They capture the exquisite horrors of a waking life that, when it comes to the weight of the world, cannot yet shrug.
Infinite Day
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 42,210. Language: English (New Zealand dialect). Published: April 24, 2013. Categories: Fiction » Science fiction » General
A woman programs enzymes to reassemble the molecules of her living cells. As a nanocarbon based life form her perception of time is transformed; impulses closer to light speed make a moment for us a lifetime for her. Driven, she isolates herself, striving to find answers to the world's greatest problems... A boy formulates a new theory drawing radical conclusions and unwanted attention.
Sure Fire
Price: Free! Words: 45,320. Language: English. Published: December 4, 2011. Categories: Fiction » Science fiction » Utopias & dystopias
The wishful thinker finally has his fill, taking the next logical step toward a world of truth more devastating than his frail grip can possibly stand, revealing the power of our dreams to be more than just imagination. A psychological fantasy set in the here in now to the strains of science. An intense novel that loses touch with the reality we know in favour of a reality we should know.
