Author has written 2 stories for Donnie Darko, and World of Darkness.

Greetings and salutations!

Writer-director-actress living, working, and surviving (like ya do) in Los Angeles, with a background in forensic psychology, criminology, and creative writing (prose, stage, and screen). I dig -- in absolutely no particular order -- quantum physics and fringe science theory, singing, performing, graphic design, artistic photography, Apple, editing, learning more to become better at my craft, chess, authenticity, intelligence, elegance, respect for others, appreciation of genuine talent, alleged government conspiracy and black-ops, poker, philosophical debate, tormented antiheroes, strong heroines, mentalism, illusion, logical analysis, Oxford, Charles Dodgson / Lewis Carroll, Thomas Harris, Chuck Palahniuk, American McGee, the darker underside of things, Hallowe'en, trip-hop, and the British / UK English on which I was raised -- even though I'm technically American. (I know. It's utter madness.)

... and a tonne more.

I'm also the artistic director for Envision Dramatic Artists and the creator of The 8th Square series along with two unpublished trilogies, four other short stories, and several novellas and audio scripts. (The third novel of The 8th Square series titled 'Hunting Alice' has been adapted into an audio drama and will begin streaming episodically 27 January 2011 on a hosted site. Excerpts of the series are available here.)

If you're in SoCal, (or even if you're not) and would be interested in collaborating, message me. While I occasionally write fanfiction, I made the permanent dive into original composition somewhere around '96, and the transgressive genre (in which I now write pretty exclusively) around '01. Follow the link above (my account) to see what I'm up to currently.

I'm frequently asked what the practise and experience of fiction writing means to me and how I got mixed-up in all this writing nonsense, heh. In short, fiction is about taking chances; respectfully listening to the opposition -- and then beating it. Reality is the source of fiction; it's through asking "what if ... ?" of reality, that we may come by the answers through fiction. Afterall, you never know.

I leave you with a little anecdote which gave me some comfort as a novice writer:

A young film student was once told he was beyond hope and could never make it: his story was a mockery, and he was resigned to failure. Only his friend, a fellow film student of a neighbouring college, stood beside him amidst the sea of rejection and dearth of encouragement within the rough climate that was early 70s Hollyweird. The young man was George Lucas; his friend? Steven Spielberg.

They say there is no originality left in the world. While I'd like to prove them wrong, I can't do it alone. In all honesty, I get an unparalleled enthusiasm when I receive word from someone who has recently stumbled onto my work. That acknowledgement is what drives me, even now. Writing is a collaborative process; a communication between two parties, author and audience.

I love knowing that my transmission is being received.

So. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy what you find here. If you do, (and even if you don't) why not drop me a line saying so? Let me know that connection is being made.
