This last weekend I had the pleasure of going to Catalina Island, located off the coast of Long Beach, California. While there, Ms. Anthropy and I were very busy walking trails, going on ghost tours, visiting museums, and, of course, drinking a lot of wine. 12 bottles to be exact! I had no idea that the Island had the history that it did. Many films had been made there, it was a frequent of many Hollywood socialites, and so on. The ghost tours were especially interesting. And while the Hotel we stayed at was definitely not worth the price we paid for it (we didn't get hot water for TWO days!) I really had a decent time. I'm actually writing about my experience in an article and submitting it to the San Diego Reader.
well, the progress on my Novel is gradual. And so far, as with all my other works, it seems like the book is writing itself. I'm trying for a length of at least 120 pages. I feel that this book is going to be slightly more original than the other novels that are flooding the market. And I truly believe that is what the public truly wants. I feel most of us have had enough with all the regurgitated material from Hollywood based on what some hack writers feel are going to 'sell'. New ideas are my agenda. For horror, and everything else in between.
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 32 short stories and have published 3 books of short stories. I have completed 3 novels, 3 novellas, and have completed two parts for 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!!
