I’ve spent most of my life in the Columbus area. Writing was my first passion, then I found the drums. My performance resume ranges from heavy metal to musical theatre. I’ve earned an Associate in Music Business from Hocking College, and I’ve earned my Bachelor of the Arts in English from The Ohio State University.

I’m an enthusiast of Shakespeare, Fitzgerald, and dark comedy/satire. I read a wide variety of literature, and write reviews/criticism of traditional and independently published works, in addition to whatever else I may fancy at any given moment.

Thank you for your time and interest. I'm a real human on the other side of the screen... feel free to contact me.

That moment when a book has just been published and I start to think of what's next... that's when I'll get low. I have to still believe in an idea beyond a period of time to determine whether it's actually worth seeing through, or if I were excited because I'm desperate. It's during the plot outlining that I'll be stumped with where to take an idea. I don't have some magical answer beyond indulgence in the craft, a willingness to fail, and an eagerness to discard ideas you once loved.

I take such pleasure when the comedian brings me to laughter, and a morbid satisfaction with the successful posturing of the satirist. Moments when I feel I could somehow contribute to the collective whole, I shudder in knowing how great the greats really are, while ego suggests they would smile upon my efforts. (less)

What's the deal with the wooden dagger?

What’s the deal with the wooden dagger? It doesn’t appear anywhere in the text, so why is it in the title? What does it have to do with the story? The answer has to do with medieval theatre and use of props in character development. Characters in the medieval morality plays were often named for traits they were meant to embody. The vice figure was one of comic relief, meant to tempt and bring foll Read more of this blog post »

Calibration 74 by William F. Aicher
"Surface comparisons might take a reader to House of Leaves, the film The Number 23, Kabbalah and other numerology, but I read this for the poetry. Aicher opens up in his most honest and vulnerable writing to date. The poetry lives in each line, stanz" Read more of this review »
