Tell us about your creative side.

I was writing various complete short stories back in the 1980s & early 1990s, most of them dealing w "altered states," either of the Protagonist or of the Universe. I - - and the Woman I Love, my wife Gail Scamoni, who in January this year passed beyond this Cycle of Birth and Death from cancer - - had met at the Northport Writers Club in 1991 [Wunderbar, Wunderkind...]. But we got distracted with EACH OTHER, and then took on a fight with THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. It is ironic that because of that undertaking, especially - - we, who met at a writers club - - ceased writing. I'm currently working on a supernatural thriller, IGNOBLE COMPANIONS, configured as both a novel & its fraternal twin screenplay counterpart, and also working on a book length memoir, THE SLOW BURN OF KARMA.

Where can we see/hear/read some of your works? Any links?

I intend to make them available - - still need to still determine method of presentation.

What do you hope to gain by participating in the culture circle?

It's part of my effort to rejoin the wider humanity [had my wife lived, she would be attending also]

What are your favorite cultural expressions? Which movies, songs, novels, poems, museums, etc.?

1. MONTY PYTHON: Their whole series and two of their four movies: MONTY PYTHON & THE HOLY GRAIL - - and - - THE LIFE OF BRIAN. I payed them L' Homage [their "Piranha Brothers" episode] when I recently formed a meetup writing group, "The `Other, Other' Writing Group [longer segments reviewed]" 2. What I consider movies based on perfect screenplays. Two examples: CHINATOWN - - and - - L.A. CONFIDENTIAL. 3. Favorite series: `ALLO, `ALLO, THE ODD COUPLE, F TROOP. 4. Various movies from different eras. 5. History, Science, Metaphysics. 6. Favorite poem [besides mine]: THE HOUND OF HEAVEN.

Links to some of your favorite web-sites for creative inspiration?

So far, it's all been `from within'

Introduction

Been writing Creatively since the 1970s, none complete & none w publication in mind - but a bit more `serious' in the 1980s+. Professional efforts are in Engineering, specifically Microwave Circuit Design and Electromagnetic Interference solutions.

What PROCONSUL Frank A. B. is saying about this Meetup Group

Ah, yes. Let me wax forth: Possible intro/transition to the culture of `Paris '38...' witout the `complication' of elements of the German gang of `You Know Who'
