The links on these pages are for friends of mine without
whom I would never have gotten to where I am today.
You can find links to some of my favorite links for writing

businesses, music, and other sources of inspiration and
support in my life. Help me share the gift they’ve

the person “Behind the Face.”
Perhaps the band that has had the most
influence on my writing life: my favorite band, ever.
Positive, dark music – the perfect paradox. Not only
that, but all of the band-members are some of the sweetest
people I’ve had the honor to meet.
A. Harmon used to write truthful, honest stories about
important and famous people. Now she writes lies, which is
infinitely more satisfying but lacks the convenience of
doorstop delivery, especially on rainy days. She also was
great to stay with during Balticon. :)

naturally made, local business… need I say more why I love
A musician, writer, producer, animator,
businessman and artist, Voltaire is right up there with the
Cruxshadows as an inspiration. Not only do I love all
he produces, but I truly admire his ability to wear so many
hats and do so much – and still treat all of his fans with
great kindness and respect.
