Singer/songwriter Keith Hampton, founder of Boston-based Brave Records, calls Follow the Wolf Moon: "Sensual and sardonic. [It] reflects on moments of life that shine in the mind. They surprise you at first, but offer relief when you relax into them."

Illustrating a situation or emotion with words has been Mullaney's calling from an early age. He wrote his first haiku at age six and remains passionately in love with Japanese poetry.

His literary influences include TS Eliot, Joyce Peseroff, Lloyd Schwartz, Elizabeth Bishop, Charles de Lint, and Frank Herbert. Musical influences include Loreena McKennitt, Patty Griffin, Moby, and David Gray.

In addition to writing, Mullaney is a graphic artist, printmaker, painter and Web designer who has studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Boston and the University of Massachusetts.

He is an active member of the Arlington Street Church in Boston (Unitarian Universalist.) His interests include Buddhist philosophy, social justice and environmental causes, horseback riding, travel, Reiki, music, and martial arts.
