About Me

I like cats, horror movies, comedy, beer and whiskey and lots of coffee. I like to tell stories. I like writing prose and poetry, but I’m pretty bad at poetry. Genre fiction, postmodernist trash and comics are some of my favorite things to read. I’m an urban ornithologist in training. I eat too much salty food. I just graduated college and I have a job flailing around with books.

-Kurt Vonnegut
