Horror writer, haiku poet, copier technician, cartoonist.


Background Information

I write a lot of different things, from haiku to horror. Almost every writer I've read has influenced me in some way, but I'd have to say my biggest influences come from Stephen King, Chuck Palahniuk, Hunter S. Thompson, and Dave Barry. With a little Ogden Nash and Jack Kerouac thrown in for good measure.
