I really appreciate you taking the time to explore my website, where you can read excerpts from my novels, screenplays, poetry, and other creative projects.
Unlike most writers whose inspiration comes from reading the work of other fiction writers, I find that I’m more inspired by music and musicians. In my opinion, there isn’t a more personal form of communication and creative expression than music. You’ll find that many of my characters are also heavily influenced by music, and as I’m writing I always imagine the film in my head and the music I want to use for every scene.
I like to put my characters in situations where they are forced to step outside of their comfort zones, push the envelope to achieve their dreams, and never say die when faced with seemingly insurmountable obstacles or overwhelming tragedy. I’m not interested in writing about characters who play it safe and limit themselves based on what society dictates, so you will see that I always try to challenge my characters at every twist and turn.

I’m Not With The Band Anymore
So many wasted nights spent in cities that never sleep.
Me, with bloodshot eyes and impaired hearing, standing outside the backstage door.
Pretending to be with the band,
And hoping you’d talk to me before leaving with your chosen lady of the evening.
But when our eyes met, there was only a pseudo spark of recognition.
I guess my name wasn’t important enough for you to remember.
So I was always left standing alone like a pathetic idiot,
Wondering why I kept putting myself through that torture.
What was a pleasant distraction for awhile, turned into a futile obsession.
It took me away from what’s important to me.
Wrecked my self-esteem,
And made me lose so much precious time.
But now I’ve found someone genuine to talk to,
Someone who loves me for me.
So don’t bother adding me to your guest list,
Because I’m not with the band anymore.
