Well, if you are looking at this I guess you want to know more about me. Here goes...(warning language)
Gender? Guess. Shouldn't be too hard.
Age? Old enough to know better and have regrets. Unlike some, I REMEMBER what Nixon got in soooo much trouble for.
Background? Lots of medical and military, self and family. WWII and Civil War buff.
Music? Ranges wide - Opera (big into Puccini), HR/HM (seen Metallica in concert 4 times and saw Queensryche do Operation:Mindcrime LIVE (!)). Hate Country with very rare exceptions. Was once deeply in love with - oh hell, too many to name. Fave song? Got to go with Kashmir. If you have to ask you are too damn young.
Actually heard Mt. St. Helens go up. Lost a good friend there.
Main genres looking to explore? SF/Fantasy, Horror, Crime, yaddda yadda yadda... My tastes are eccentric. In all things.
Political leanings? Lets just say I think Jefferson had a really good idea with that Bill of Rights.
Philosophy? Do what you will...and pay for it. What goes around comes around.
Can I write? We'll find out together.
BTW, the pen name is pronounced Nykta Brahkay. The ch is pronounced as a softened k in the second name (a hard k in the first). What does it mean? I'm not about to tell you - I only just finished translating it back into the English alphabet from the Greek. And no, I'm not Greek.
