"Existence precedes essence." I am resident of a province not too far from Bangkok. I like to write stories that verge on the bizarre, perhaps even the surreal. My focus is short stories. This may be due to laziness or it could also be due to the fact that I was a songwriter. Rightly or wrongly I look at stories the same way you would look at writing a hit song. A good short story moves at a good pace and ends just at the right time....to keep you coming back for more.
