Slender. Angry. (Part) Asian.

Yeah, that about sums me up.

Hi. I’m Cole. Xen. Whatever you want to call me; both are true, and both are lies. My pen names are multitudes, my nicknames legion. Tall, bi/queer, introverted author of a brown-ish persuasion made up of various flavors of Black, Asian, and Native American. I’m cuter than Hello Kitty, more bitter than the blackest coffee, and able to trip over cats in a single half-asleep lurch; I’m what happens when a Broody Antihero and a Manic Pixie Dream Boy fight to the death, and someone builds a person from the scraps left behind. Beardless, I look like the uke in every yaoi manga in existence; bearded or not, I sound like Barry White. About half my time is spent as a corporate writer, and the

The whole city is quiet and holding its breath, so that the few other wanderers who walk the 3am streets and dream the same waking dreams I do stand out so distinctly, every sound crisp and clear. It's when my mind is most awake, alive, ideas connecting and growing and evolving, words coming together like music.

The Undue Arrogance series is produced by Tantor for audio; CI would have to be produced independently through Amazon ACX. I found a narrator I adore on there but I haven't had time to do the work of minute-by-minute review and corrections, and I'm not sure when I will so I don't want to make him wait for me for months with each book. So while it might be a thing in the future, I'm honestly not sure right now. I don't want to commit to something and then renege on it, so...maybe? I'm working on it? Hopefully! Sorry I couldn't give a more clear answer. <3(less)

Take a seat. Take several. We’re gonna chat.

Welp. I guess I’m getting this out of the way so I can get some goddamned sleep, and because I am not going to let a bunch of vindictive, conspiracy-peddling arseholes frame my life by their terms or shape the narrative around who I am.


You are going to sit down, and you are going to listen, because I have had enough of this shite.


Did you think you were going to somehow shame me, oust me, turn me i

That was...odd. Not what I was expecting, equal parts haunting and absurdist. The absurdism honestly took away from the story quite a bit for me, but I'm not dinging it for that because considering this is more sociopolitical commentary than horror, ...more

“He was a single captured moment, a stillness amidst the chaos and noise, a dark ghost in the world of the living. Monochrome in his paleness and dark clothing, standing poised as if the crow would take flight—or the spirit would fade away, as dead as the boy lying blank and empty on the pavement.”
Cole McCade, The Cardigans

“Someone else’s personal fantasy may well be your personal nightmare.”
Cole McCade, The Lost

“It’d been a long time since she’d met a guy who could bring her down to earth—or follow her into the stars.”
Cole McCade, A Second Chance at Paris
