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.
Featured Poem of the Month
(for Jaco Pastorius)
Up all night without need for sleep.
Creating masterpieces that came naturally.
A broken spirit, but so alive.
They tried to fix you,
And silence the demons in your head.
Their well-intentioned actions nearly killed you,
Years before death actually took you away.
You will always be remembered as a master of your art.
A beautiful soul inside and out.
Someone who left us way too soon,
But whose heart will continue to beat with every note you ever played.
