Now working on my 4th attempt, a ghost story revolving around the consequences of substance abuse, inspired by real events in my life. It's one of those projects that will either be affecting or awful. I'm aiming for the former. (less)

I'm not sure how I got sucked into these stories, curiosity maybe? Or masochism? Some of these stories are just as strange as they proclaim to be, others push limits and violate boundaries but they all seem to tap into some unmentio..." Read more of this review »

Hannah Ah the social awkwardness of laughing at death, I'm sure it will make for a rather interesting final meeting with the grim reaper. Thank you for the invite :)

Thanks, Dean! Pleasure making your acquaintance too. And, btw, I didn’t say I wasn’t afraid of Giant Beavers. In fact, I fear them very much. But we must confront our fears to overcome them... or to capture them.

Dean Blake Thanks for the friendship, man. You play the banjo, AND aren't afraid of beavers? I envy you.

Thanks, Sam. Alas, no Giant Beavers (or even normal-sized ones) in my novel, but it does have tiny hairy people, blubbery giants, and other fantastically absurd nonsense. Hope you get the chance to read it.
