Bluegrass Hoosier living in southern Indiana, working in Louisville, Kentucky. My first fiction novel (a steampunk fairy tale) was published in 2013. Reader of pulpy fantastic tales. Lover of tasty beverages, including but not limited to coffee, tea and bourbon. Fan of soulful, old-timey music.

I believe in real things. But my definition of "real" is quite expansive.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Henry David Thoreau
“How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.”
Henry David Thoreau

C.S. Lewis
“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”
C.S. Lewis

Maya Angelou
“Most people don't grow up. Most people age. They find parking spaces, honor their credit cards, get married, have children, and call that maturity. What that is, is aging.”
Maya Angelou

Oscar Wilde
“If you want to be a grocer, or a general, or a politician, or a judge, you will invariably become it; that is your punishment. If you never know what you want to be, if you live what some might call the dynamic life but what I will call the artistic life, if each day you are unsure of who you are and what you know you will never become anything, and that is your reward.”
Oscar Wilde
