From San Rafael, California on a windy January in 1952, it's been a wild ride. My folks never settled down until long after I'd moved to a cabin I built on a commune in Oregon, but I couldn't sit still -- the wanderlust was in my blood. I hitchhiked to New York City in 1973. There I met my wife on Canal Street and finally found a home.

I learned my craft post-college, spending 20-plus years in the trenches of NYC advertising and publicity as a graphic designer, marker-pen-jockey, art director and copy writer. I served the needs of a wide range of clients from corporate multinationals to non-profits and small retail businesses. I now limit my design and marketing work to book covers and collateral marketing for authors.

Hmmm... that makes it pretty tough. Overall... my very favorite would have to be Mr. & Mrs. Claus. They seem to have a very effective working relationship, both involved deeply in the family business and their marriage is one which has stood the test of time. They also always seem to bring a cheerful attitude to the hardest of tasks. (less)

Koontz never fails.

Great pacing, a gathering of recognizable characters plus a few not so understandable thrown together in the ultimate crisis for humanity. His further investigation of what AI might be capable of is especially intriguing. Read this

Richard Sutton Good to hear from you, Dustin!


Richard Sutton I'm going to look into setting up a group for those interested in Irish-themed literature, fiction and writing. Let me know if this seems like something you'd be interested in. I'll try to secure some interviews with writers in the genre, etc.
