I've just self-published my very first novel, The Totally Gnarly Adventures of the Galactically Bitchin' Comet Sweat!. It's the first in a series of wild and wacky sci-fi adventures about a futuristic new-wave band that tours the galaxy and finds itself stumbling into all sorts of crazy misadventures! The book is now available through Amazon--buy your copy today! (Please?) I'm a writer who's been plying the trade in some form or another ever since winning a Young Author's contest in second grade. It only took me 25 years to finally start getting serious about it and try to actually do something with it! My literary repertoire consists of several short stories (a few of which have been published and a couple of which have won awards), some stage plays (a couple of which have been locally produced), and a semi-autobiographical novel that explores a gay square peg trying to find love and acceptance in a same-sex world that always manages to kick him in the @$$. Beyond that, I'm always writing in some form or another, whether it's essays or reviews or just random ramblings. I do have a few comic book scripts under my belt, and I have a plethora of ideas for many more, but like most newbies, I'm finding it difficult to "break into the biz" — especially since I can't draw or paint worth squat. I'm constantly seeking an artist to team up with to help me bring my visions to life, so if anyone is looking for a partner in four-color crime, give me a holler! In my civilian identity, I work as a college English professor.
