Finding Our Footage – found footage musings

As much as folks get burned out by found footage, I tell you what, I never have, and consider myself lucky. I can see why you would get burned out, the style of found footage films being so strong and pronounced, that it’s a bit like the superhero burnout. It makes sense. The thing though… Continue reading Finding Our Footage – found footage musings

A Shadow On The Violets has arrived!

I am very excited to announce that my newest book A Shadow On The Violets has been released. This is very, very far removed from what I have been known to write and I am thrilled at how this turned out. In the idyllic halls of a forgotten retirement home the shadow of Death looms… Continue reading A Shadow On The Violets has arrived!

Coming Soon…A Shadow On the Violets

COVER REVEAL! I have been teasing this book for a bit now but it's time for it to come out, finally. Eventually. Soon! I wrote this book a couple of years ago at the behest of someone and thought I would challenge myself to write outside of my comfort zone and am thrilled with how… Continue reading Coming Soon…A Shadow On the Violets

The Beast We Created

Sometimes it’s hard to blame a system for the cage we ourselves made. Sure, there are always people we can blame, faceless suits we can point a finger at and declare that THEY did this to us and that we are free of guilt but the fact is that in many instances we allowed them… Continue reading The Beast We Created

Finding Your Way Around The Place

Hello and welcome, traveler! However you found my little slice of weird on the internet, welcome and hello. OK, for navigation purposes - If you came for the reviews (found footage specifically) - do a search for that tag. Reviews or Found Footage and you should find what you're looking for.

Comfort Food – blog

I don’t know if we will fully understand the cost we paid for Covid for many years. Not the cost in lives, or the cost in the economy, or even the cost in our children’s welfare but in the general welfare of the society as a whole.  We paid a price that there was no… Continue reading Comfort Food – blog

Performance Art

It’s become a distant memory by now, something that’s nearing twenty years old but which still sticks with me.  I have never been the most confident of ‘performers’ when it comes to doing readings. I have said this in the past. I read very quickly and I’ll fumble around with words and the WORST is… Continue reading Performance Art

Use The Struggle

I think it’s safe to say that all of us struggle in some way or another, whether it be financially, emotionally, creatively, or in some other way. Struggling is part of life.  It’s how we react to the struggle, how we meet it, and how we learn to use it or overcome it that can… Continue reading Use The Struggle

We Gotta Get Outta This Place

You can tell that we have all been feeling a little bit of claustrophobia and cabin fever after Covid. Humans are social creatures, after all, and when we’re told we can’t do something, especially something like seeing other people, we tend to get a little intense.  As social creatures, we need one another, and while… Continue reading We Gotta Get Outta This Place

A Mystery Is Afoot!

When I wrote my mystery novella a few years back I wrote it in a flurry, trying desperately to get it done before the end of the month so it would be done on time for the publisher. It had been a challenge, writing in a genre I didn't read, and certainly didn't write, but… Continue reading A Mystery Is Afoot!

Be Your Own Truth

It gets tiresome, doesn’t it, getting excited for something only to have wave after wave of ‘critic’ squat drop all over it and declaring that thing terrible! I do this all the time to my wife, to her chagrin.  This isn’t a new thing, critics lambasting something and then making sure the world knows their… Continue reading Be Your Own Truth

Out of Sight

Anyone that has read my blog for any length of time - anyone? Anyone? - will know that I come back to topics from time to time that feel important to get some attention. Somet things, as they say, are worth repeating. Recognition is great.  It’s needed.  It’s necessary.  We need to know what we… Continue reading Out of Sight

Just a quick reminder that my newest book - THIS IS A DOOR - is out now on Kindle and in paperback. This is a collection of some of my photography from over the years from the creepy to the cute. Here are a couple outtakes from some of the photos. BUY HERE!
