I was born in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and I now reside in Ambler, a one square mile town in the same state that has over fifteen churches, about six bars, and zero dog parks.

I wrote my first short story in 2nd grade (it was really short), declared war on my sister in the 3rd grade, grew peach fuzz on my upper lip in 6th grade, kissed a girl in 10th grade, but never broke any bones (although my sister did give me a black eye utilizing a large hardback collection of Little Golden Books).

My first professionally published work was a two part article on musician/poet Patti Smith (including an interview) that appeared in the now-defunct magazine, Rockpile.

My first book, Deep Autumn, a colle

Virginia Woolf
“So I have to create the whole thing afresh for myself each time. Probably all writers now are in the same boat. It is the penalty we pay for breaking with tradition, and the solitude makes the writing more exciting though the being read less so. One ought to sink to the bottom of the sea, probably, and live alone with ones words.”
Virginia Woolf, A Writer's Diary

Albert Camus
“Consciousness and revolt, these rejections are the contrary of renunciation. Everything that is indomitable and passionate in a human heart quickens them, on the contrary, with its own life. It is essential to die unreconciled and not of one’s own free will. Suicide is a repudiation. The absurd man can only drain everything to the bitter end, and deplete himself. The absurd is his extreme tension, which he maintains constantly by solitary effort, for he knows that in that consciousness and in that day-to-day revolt he gives proof of his only truth, which is defiance.”
Albert Camus, The Myth of Sisyphus and Other Essays

Marsha M. Linehan
“People with BPD are like people with third degree burns over 90% of their bodies. Lacking emotional skin, they feel agony at the slightest touch or movement.”
