I write literary novels about outsiders. My favorite author is Banana Yoshimoto, and after reading "Kitchen," I decided I wanted to write a novel that made me feel the same way "Kitchen" did, the result of which is my novel, "Bliss, Bliss, Bliss." My latest novel, "Iggy Gorgess," is about a 22 year-old punk male writer living in Greenwich Village, NYC in the 1980's.

I am a "Twilight Zone" fanatic -- 1960's, 1980's and 1990's -- any version of the show will do. If I could go back in time, I'd choose that rainy evening on Lake Geneva, Summer of 1816, when Lord Byron challenged his guests to write their own horror story, resulting in his most famous guest, Mary Shelley, writing "Frankenstein."

The Poem I Wrote As A Love Letter To My Vocal Cords

 

My Dad singing with his cover band "Beach Road" in the 1970's

In April 2016, I wrote a blog entry entitled, "Finally - Dad. (Part 1)."  I said that it was very difficult to write about my dad who died when I was fifteen but that eventually I would write more entries about him.  So here we are, six years later, with Part 2. In Part 1, I wrote about my dad's love of Walt Whitman's poetry and sai

“We sat on the floor eating donuts, completely dazed and hung over. I looked up at the window every so often to gaze at the Christmas lights. They were so beautiful. They blinked on and off in what should have been the early night dark but was really the early morning dark.”
Chrissi Sepe, Bliss, Bliss, Bliss

“Oh, I don’t buy lottery tickets... because if I won, and I was capable of that kind of odd luck, then I would also be equally capable of extremely bad luck, like getting struck by lightning, or falling out of window or something. I’d rather just not know.”
Chrissi Sepe, Bliss, Bliss, Bliss

“I first became aware of death when my father held me up to see the view from the top of the Empire State Building. I thought that if he moved me just one foot over, I would die. But I trusted him to hold me tight. I wouldn’t fall over, and he would place me down safely.”

“When I was a child, adults would tell me not to make things up, warning me of what would happen if I did. As far as I can tell so far, it seems to involve lots of foreign travel and not having to get up too early in the morning.”
