"I am the literary equivalent of a Big Mac and Fries" said Stephen King. "I am the literary equivalent of a Happy Meal" said SmartestMonkey. I suppose I could devise a wonderfully exciting life, and you would never be the wiser that it wasn't actually my true life. Ah, the wonders of the Internet. Characterization of fiction and lying about myself are two distinct concepts and I prefer not to anger the writing Gods by confusing the two. I write because I must. I have something in my head that must be put to paper or I get twitchy. Twitchy isn't fun. Hopefully, my writing will meet with your approval.
