I'm deadly serious about my work. Ever searching for new ways to hone my skills and make my stories better, cleaner, stronger. I do not need to be handled with kid gloves. I know doing detailed edits and/or critiques of someone else's work is a time consuming and tedious process. I neither expect nor demand such from my readers. But... BUT! If you should feel inclined to gift me with such a treasure I will take each suggestion to heart. I will also reciprocate. So if you decide to comment on my work, don't candy coat a thing. I came here to get better.
I mainly write genre fiction, namely dark fantasy, urban fantasy, and psychological horror. My characters tend to be societal rejects. People who live outside the mainstream, and off the grid. Whores and drunkards, runaway children and madmen. I'm fascinated by creatures of myth and folklore; I like to re-imagine them in grittier, more modern settings. Seraphs half mad from not knowing the face of god, and monsters that dance with the notes of Mozart. I am a student of human nature with a deep love of philosophy and psychology, which I try to incorporate into my stories. My heroes range from Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell, to Nietzsche and Thomas Moore. Oscar Wilde and Virginia Woolf, to Alice Hoffman and Charles De Lint.
I'm still struggling to find my own *voice*.
