meI suppose it’ll be important to validate that I know something about writing, otherwise you might as well learn tap dance from an elephant. CAN YOU LEARN TAP DANCE FROM AN ELEPHANT? I want that. Anyone? In the comments, if you will.

I’m the author of Anointed: The Passion of Timmy Christ, CEO and Flutter: An Epic of Mass Distraction (Mercury Retrograde Press). I’ve been featured by NPR, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Publishers Weekly, Baby Got Books, Shelf Awareness, and was nominated for the 2010 Sidewise Award for Alternate Fiction. I’ve been yelled at by a few editors, laughed at by an agent or two, and spoken quite rudely to by more than a couple of my characters.

Currently, I’m peddling the first book of a fantasy series for youngsters called The Storyteller and the Shadowheart of Darkness, while working on a new untitled Speculative Fiction project hellbent on lampooning the peculiar lunacy of how we human.

Much of my time these days is wrapped in the tight bundle of cooing wonder that is Broadleaf Writers. An organization dedicated to the craft of writing, the foundation of a community every writer needs, Broadleaf is a bit of a dream come true. I look forward to watching it grow, and hope you will be a part of it.

I’m always a student. Some of what I say might make sense. The rest might fly better than a spoonful of sketty at the dinner table. I have no idea if that’s a good thing or not. That’s for you to decide. Just … just don’t follow my lead. For your sake. I won’t notice.
