Who is this Guy

   I am a writer, at least trying to be, that has finally concluded that this is what I want to continue to do with my life from here on out. The reasons for this are many: 1) Writing relaxes me in a way that nothing else ever has. 2) I get to create an imaginary world populated with characters that are as confused, anxious, scared, brave, heroic, and evil as I am or sometimes want to be. 3) Writing is amusing and frustrating—a great combination. 4) I love creating something out of nothing. And so on and so on. My genre of interest is mystery/suspense/murder with a touch of thriller and horror thrown in for good measure.

   I was born in Ohio in October 1974. After graduating from high school in Indiana, I wandered around the states for a few years playing in bands, you can check out some original music on the top right of my home page, before joining the Army as a satellite communications technician. I spent two years with the 101st Airborne, thirteen months in Afghanistan, and two years in Alaska before returning home to Indiana. I was diagnosed with Agoraphobia and Bipolar Manic Depression some years back, and that has opened my eyes to a whole new world of introspection, thought, and way of life. I stay inside a lot with Serica my cat and sometimes walk around the lakes surrounding my house taking my camera and trying to catch some of nature’s beauty and stillness. Of course, I love to read every chance I get, and I am always looking for that next great story.

        And thank you for the enlightening answers. I agree wholeheartedly with eleven, and am enduringly curious about the clothes-hanger tree. Now that’s art.
        (I hope I get to the first novel finish line soon, too. All my respect to you!)
