So this is me: I write stories that I like to call “socio-political horror,” or, scary stories about the scary world we live in. Here, have a quote that sums up my writing aesthetic:
“Civilization is like a thin layer of ice upon a deep ocean of chaos and darkness.” – Werner Herzog
“The planet is a gunboat in a sea of fear.” – Radiohead
I write fiction about politicians, generals, kings and queens; the disenfranchised and the dispossessed; outcasts, clerics, and pillars of society. I write about blowback and weapons of mass destruction: ghosts and demons and witch doctors. I write about people who, through a combination of circumstances and ambitions, take a ride down the road of no return.
I also write non-fiction about sport, and what we really talk about when we talk about sport. I grew up in Nebraska, so I watch college football, and I live in Washington, D.C., so I watch baseball and hockey, and for no good reason, I watch tennis. Tennis really stresses me out.
