About this author

Born. Grew up (sort of). Wrote, drank, and played music. Thought it was a novel idea to publish a novel. But novelty doesn't make you rich. So, still, I write.

Feel free to twit me on twitter or face me on facebook.

Commissioned by Geneva Park District to write a recommendation letter nominating Dennis Kintop for “A Best Friend of Illinois Parks” award. In recognition of his remarkable assistance to RiverPark of Geneva, we would like to nominate Dennis Kintop for the Best Friend of Illinois Parks Award.

“Chaos is what we've lost touch with. This is why it is given a bad name. It is feared by the dominant archetype of our world, which is Ego, which clenches because its existence is defined in terms of control.”
Terence McKenna
“We have to create culture, don't watch TV, don't read magazines, don't even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you're worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you're giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y. This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told 'no', we're unimportant, we're peripheral. 'Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.' And then you're a player, you don't want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that's b ...more Terence McKenna

Cormac McCarthy
“Once there were brook trout in the streams in the mountains. You could see them standing in the amber current where the white edges of their fins wimpled softly in the flow. They smelled of moss in your hand. Polished and muscular and torsional. On their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the world in its becoming. Maps and mazes. Of a thing which could not be put back. Not be made right again. In the deep glens where they lived all things were older than man and they hummed of mystery.”
Cormac McCarthy, The Road

My god, I just noticed your comment. That just shows you how inept I am at this whole social thing (I'm just as awkward in real life)

I'm glad you're intrigued by my book. I hope that it doesn't disappoint.

Thank you for accepting my friend request, and I will try to be a better friend in the future.
