When people ask who I am, I tell them that I'm a manic creative—it's the best way I can self-describe. My synapses are constantly afire and I'm afraid my brain will melt. Is there a phobia for that? I use it to my advantage, though. I write. A lot. I have several stories waiting to bust out of my cranial factory and I'm working on delivering my first 90,000 word novel: Bonehead and the Albuquerque Barbecue.
Notions of the Absurdist-Fantasy-of-Becoming-Another-American-Novelist aside (which will happen), I also tell nonfiction stories in feature article and documentary form.
