I've been involved in a wide range of creative endeavors throughout my career. As a professional writer, I've written novels, short fiction, ad copy, brochures, radio and television spots, video scripts, film treatments, interactive scripts, articles and all things social media. In addition to writing prose, I've written dozens of pop songs that have received airplay on college and alternative radio stations around the world, (and now iTunes and Pandora Internet Radio), and have performed in sleazy bars and concert halls alike. I also paint landscapes in oil of my beautiful home in Marin County, California and and have sold over 30 original pieces over the past several years.

The script was gone. I will probably post the true story to my blog someday, in the interest of shaming the thieving executives. (less)

Read it in college, when I was introduced to the "cut up" style of writing, where the author literally cuts words, sentences, phrases out of a newspaper, throws them on the floor to see what kind of new ideas it generates.

A satirical imagination can be a dangerous thing.

Since I originally posted this imagined fantasy of Peggy Caserta's rock-star party cottage that once sat on my property in Coon Hollow, I received several comments from readers that I was unaware of until now. (I thought Blogger platform was supposed to notify me with comments...maybe I need to adjust some settings or something.) Anyway, the comm... Read more of this blog post »

Hack (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Jul 21, 2012 10:49PM
Description: When it comes to painting beautiful landscapes of Northern California, Henry Griffin is anything but a hack. But when it comes to everything else, he is a hopeless bumbler, lost in dreams of his childhood sweetheart, hanging out with a shellshocked vet who is unwilling or unable to speak, (or bathe), and volunteering at the local immigrant community center in exchange for tequila and empanadas. When Hack’s kindergarten paramour appears on the art collector’s scene attached to a rich and famous rock star cum multimedia impresario, our artist realizes that if he could only be rich and famous (like her current boyfriend), they could be together and everything would be all right. Or perhaps, Hack supposes, he might be better off dead. Such is the logic of the lovesick starving artist in this often drunk and naked suspense that promises to keep readers on the edge of their seats when they’re not rolling in laughter on the floor. Jeb Harrison’s debut novel has all the spunk of a 12-foot crocodile with a stolen slipper: sharp, slippery, surprising, and strangely loveable. You’ll find yourself wanting to escape into Hack’s world of turpentine and tequila every chance you get!
