The best books are those that feel like I'm sitting on the couch with a friend who tells me a story, weaving and meandering through the characters who are interesting and flawed and broken in some way, in search of something they haven't yet been able to name. They don't always get what they want, but sometimes they find what they need.
I've been writing on and off for the past ten years, my imaginary friends are mostly the misfits who don't play by the status quo, and can't quite fit into the society they live in. I love them all and yet I like to throw things at them just to see how much they can take. I find pleasure in making them live through hell, just to see them come out the other end a changed person. They are some of the best people I know.
Here's a sample of that writing. I hope you enjoy it and I look forward to reading your comments.
