What is your favorite writing saying?

Don't have one.

What is your favorite book on writing?

Never read one.

What do you write?

Hard to classify. Fantasy/thrillers. Think Dennis Wheatley, Jim Butcher, Eric Lustbader. Violence and magic underpinned by martial arts and Eastern philosophy. My characters are all old enough to vote, unlike the current trend in these kiv-vid occult shows.

What do you read?

History, psychology, religion, Parker, Butcher, Evanovich, historicals, crime, espionage.

Tell me something else about yourself, please?

Pretty much covered in the profile. Lived in a lot of places -- London, Atlanta, Ft Lauderdale, New York, a small town in Ohio. Thinking about making one last reloication to Seattle. Like jazz, some folk. Married twice, divorced twice. Both smart, attractive women. I have a lot of cats. I practice Shingon Buddhism. At one time was a priest in the Church of Satan. Met a lot of interesting people there. Been a historical reenactor, taught ballroom dancing, used to speak Russian, but have gotten very rusty. Tried to learn Japanes and absolutely tanked it.

Introduction

I just sold my first novel to Dailey-Swan Publishers in CA. I've been an airman, an actor, a critic, a journalist, had a slew of crappy jobs in between.
