2012. A strange, and interesting, and, for the most part, good year. For myself in particular this year was anything but dull. I briefly lived in another state, moved from the residence I have lived in for over thirty years, wrote two more stories, over ten articles, and so on. All in all, I'd say it wasn't bad. When you take in the fact that we all didn't die on December 21st, that too is something to be grateful for. So, out with the old and in with the new, I wonder now what 2013 will bring.
I just found out today that the premiere publication body in San Diego, The 'Reader', is publishing the two articles that I submitted to them. To say that I am ecstatic is a definite understatement. This, to me, means that I must now work overtime to provide even more articles. The articles that I choose to associate myself with are, of course, macabre in nature. I'm sorry, but to put it simply, nothing else will do. Only the most strange and morbid. It's like they call to me from some unseen place. Demanding to be written. Demanding to be seen. What else can I do, but oblige.
I am a horror fanatic as well as a writer. I consider my contemporary peers tame by my standards and hopefully one day, my works will set the standard! I have completed 31 short stories and have published 3 books of short stories. I have completed 3 novels, 3 novellas, and am currently working on a dark fantasy series. I write what I consider 'Elemental' Horror, borrowing from genre's such as Gothic, Gore, the traditional ghost story, and the Occult. Hail Horrors!!
