    "Stop crying - you've got a lot to look forward to, you know! A normal human life on Earth - mortgage repayments, the 9-to-5, a nagging sense of spiritual emptiness... Save the crying for later, boyo. " 11th Doctor, *Doctor Who*

    My particular style focuses on both Creative Nonfiction -- particularly personal essay, literary journalism, and some memoir -- as well as Fiction, and sometimes the combining of the two (my nonfiction tends to employ a lot of imaginings). I quite enjoy genre fiction most -- fantasy, some SF, intelligent horror, dark satire, and magical realism.
