I spend my time cooped up in a little shed that I have converted into a makeshift office/studio. I listen to records and attempt to be as creative as possible, as often as possible.

I generally am unsatisfied with the results, but every once in a while...good things happen.

My first novel, Strawberries, is out now. I spent a few years working on it, and people seem to like it. some days I believe them, and some I don't.

I am working diligently on my next book, which will be nothing like my first book.

Thanks to MVD for sending out a copy of this one for review. This doesn’t affect my judgment of the film or the contents of the Blu-ray.


maniac 1980 movie reviewThere are many films that attempt to depict the inner workings of a psychopathic mind and most of them fall far short. For every Psycho, there are a hundred garbage films that need not be

Behind The Red Curtain by Casey Bartsch
"Everything seemed to be a horror show. Genius.

Lucy, a cashier at a popcorn store, around 40 years of age, had a boring life. A good-looking guy asked her on a date, and things seemed to get better. But in reality, he turned out to be her kidnapper. W" Read more of this review »

Saari really loves golf. He has to. This is a mystery, I believe 4th in a series (though I could be wrong) revolving around the finding of a dog skeleton on a golf course. A couple-she a pro golfer, he a caddie-seek to solve the mystery, and a few pl ...more

Ok, so paranormal romance isn’t my thing. Hell, romance in general isn’t my thing. I don’t hate love, it just makes me feel awkward. Yet, here I am reading Dark, and it isn’t so bad at all. As an Austinite myself, I appreciate that Kinney seems to kn ...more

Coyote Summer is an interesting read. It would be easy to assume that the writer got the idea from recent events involving Brett Kavanaugh, but I think that’s beside the point. This type of story could take place at any time, and it may be just happe ...more

I’m going to start by saying that I had no desire to read this book. The events of 9/11 didn’t affect me, yet I strive to ignore references to the event to avoid sinking into that depressive thought hole. Still, it’s important to step out of your com ...more

“You aren't the confident person that you were pretending to be before, are you Bill?” “None of us are. Men, I mean. We know that women want confidence, and so some of us are good at pretending that we have it.”
Casey Bartsch, Strawberries

“She was the type that wasn't fazed a bit by hurricanes that killed thousands, or a nuclear meltdown that occurred halfway around the world, but when Jake's cat died last year, she cried all night with him.”
Casey Bartsch, Strawberries

“We need to make it through this bullshit, because I know what I want in my life now. Forget the stupid job, the pills, everything else. I'll pay taxes and be a secretary or something. I don't need anything except how I feel when we are together.”
Casey Bartsch, Strawberries

“You're always haunted by the idea you're wasting your life.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Diary

“So many books, so little time.”
Frank Zappa

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.”
Neil Gaiman, The Kindly Ones

“with an intensity that sent every instinct in my body screaming that death was here, that it was about to jump down my throat and rip me inside out.”
Jim Butcher, Fool Moon
