Humor, observations, poetry & gibe
I’m a beholder, a critic, a jester, and scribe

Types of writing I generally create: Satire, Narrative Nonfiction, Short fiction, Poetry, Humor

My tastes generally lean toward stories that delve into the psyche, the human psyche, and the human condition. I also love satire and humor writing. I can appreciate the talent inherent in “science fiction” and “fantasy” writing, but these genres in their traditional formats are not ones that I am usually drawn too. I do, however enjoy writing that blurs the line between reality and something else, such as the supernatural. Sometimes these stories could be seen as loosely akin to those genres.

Some of my favorite authors are Chuck Palahniuk, Nick Hornby, Brett Easton Ellis, and Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

  7. Let's Rock

    “Let’s Rock!” yelled, thirteen year old Travis, as he cranked his dad’s cherished Alpine Home Stereo System. Travis “air guitared” fervently to a god awful Nickelback song, clutching a pair of sewing scissors as if t...

  8. TMI

    Gino Kaval laid back hesitantly in a leather recliner in Dr. Phipps office. Dr. Phipps began, “So, let’s get right to the point. What is it exactly that’s bothering you? Why are you here?” “Well,” Gino began, “...

  9. Can you guess who it is?

    He’s a charismatic character with a convincing careen. He’s a slick, sly, modern day Quixote with a marvelous sheen. He’s a gritty flagrant fighter with fervent flare. He’s the man in charge but lives without a care. He’s ...
