I'm looking for my place in the world of storytelling and illustration. I'm thrilled by the success of Death in the Highlands; it's now published in an anthology called The Devil Who Loves Me and available on Amazon. After tasting success, I only want more. Plenty more.
I'm considering other things I can do to share my creative work with people. The next year will be a time of experimentation. I have nearly a dozen polished short stories and about three rough novels tragically sitting on my hard drives. They're wasted there. I'll keep you posted on where they're published or accessible to the public when the time comes.
This blog should also humanize me. I am indeed a person, and hopefully not too much of a stranger. I grew up obsessing over the 16 bit world. I like to read speculative fiction books, but I especially enjoy beta-reading. I don't have cable television service and I never will. I'm fighting chronic illness that forces me to treat each day as a blessed opportunity to do the things I was meant to do. Not a single day is superfluous. Every moment matters.
With art and writing we can go somewhere else and bring knowledge and wisdom back with us when we return. Let's leave planet Earth together for a while.
