About this author

I sometimes write and constantly feel as though I don't read enough. I also make bearable music. I've also been known to purchase milk when it's running low in the fridge.

My debut novel, Cult Fiction, is about a man who, inadvertently and through very little fault of his own, sets up a cult. It is a darkly comic novel told by a narrator who sometimes gets a little bit distracted.

I'd like to have an actual Goodreads profile (unlike this author one you have to have if you're going to insist on telling people you wrote some kind of a book once), but I guess that'd get confusing. Feel free to add me and stuff.

Breakfast is the only meal of the day that I tend to view with the same kind of traditionalized reverence that most people associate with Lunch and Dinner. I like to eat breakfast alone, and almost never before noon; anybody with a terminally jangled lifestyle needs at least one psychic anchor every twenty-four hours, and mine is breakfast. In Hong Kong, Dallas or at home — and regardless of whether or not I have been to bed — breakfast is a personal ritual that can only be properly observed alone, and in a spirit of genuine excess. The food factor should always be massive: four Bloody Marys, two grapefruits, a pot of coffee, Rangoon crepes, a half-pound of either sausage, bacon, or corned beef hash with diced chiles, a Spanish omelette or eggs Benedict, a quart of milk, a chopped lemon for random seasoning, and something like a slice of Key lime pie, two margaritas, and six lines of the best cocaine for dessert… Right, and there should also be two or three newspapers, all mail and mes...more Hunter S.

In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”

“Reading is one form of escape. Running for your life is another.”
Lemony Snicket

Herman Melville
“There are certain queer times and occasions in this strange mixed affair we call life when a man takes this whole universe for avast practical joke, though the wit thereof he but dimly discerns, and more than suspects that the joke is at nobody's expense but his own. However, nothing dispirits, and nothing seems worth while disputing. He bolts down all events, all creeds, and beliefs, and persuasions, all hard things visible and invisible, never mind how knobby; as an ostrich of potent digestion gobbles down bullets and gun flints. And as for small difficulties and worryings, prospects of sudden disaster, peril of life and limb; all these, and death itself, seem to him only sly, good-natured hits, and jolly punches in the side bestowed by the unseen and unaccountable old joker. That odd sort of wayward mood I am am speaking of, comes over a man only in some time of extreme tribulation; it comes in the very midst of his earnestness, so that what just before might have seemed to him a thing most momentous, now seems but a part of the general joke.”
Herman Melville, Moby Dick
