What writing genre(s) do you prefer and why?

I write usually somewhere in the orbit of magic realism, I love writing because its the land of the imagination, and mythological, dream, and internal emotional realities can be expressed in beautiful and compelling surrealist and magic ways.

What have you found frustrating about your creative abilities or process?

I have too much creativity and not enough steadfastness; the next project always lures me away with its shininess

What authors inspire you, or have influenced your writing?

Jack Kerouac - J.R.R. Tolkien - Anais Nin - Gary Snyder - Francisca Lia Block - Marcel Proust - George R.R. Martin - Borges - Richard & Wendy Pini


I'm a student at Five Branches University, studying Chinese Medicine (acupuncture, herbalism, massage, nutrition, and Qi Gong) as well as a writer and videographer / filmmaker. I've self published one novel and one full-length documentary film.
