Author has written 2 stories for General, and Mystery.

I can't believe I'm doing this again, but I think I'm going to scrap The Jabbe Chronicles again. I think I want to split the story up into different books.. Oh what DO I want?

RIP BILLY MAYS

Favorite Playwrights: Neil Simon, William Shakespeare, David Mamet, David Lindsay-Abaire, Sam Shepard

Favorite Authors: Jonathan Safran Foer, Raymond Carver, F. Scott Fitzgerald, George Orwell, Dean Koontz, Thomas Harris, William Shakespeare, Michael Crichton, JK Rowling, John Berendt, Glenn Beck

My Favorite Literary Characters:

- Odd Thomas of Dean Koontz' Odd Thomas series- Odd is the perfect narrator. He's humorous and sincere. His humor keeps you reading, but his raw emotions keep you coming back. You really begin to feel for Odd as he deals with Stormy's death. Odd is a shining star among Koontz' somewhat dull mystery and suspense novels.

- Nick Carraway of The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald- As my American Literature teacher put it, Nick Carraway is the only character in Gatsby that you can actually sympathize with. He's one of the most reliable narrators I've ever come across. He tells the reader like it is and rarely casts any judgement. Maybe it's because he's a bright star against a dark backdrop of characters. Either way, Nick is far superior to Jay, Tom, Daisy, and Jordan. As he himself would say, he's "worth the whole damn bunch put together".

- Alex Perchov of Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer- Alex, the premium translator in Foer's debut novel, is a literary gem. He's the best kind of unreliable narrator. He's not unreliable in that he hides things or has ulterior motives. Alex is just plain naive and, in a sense, sweet. He thinks the world of Jonathan and Grandpa. I would hang out with Alex any day of my life.

- Winston Smith of Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell- I could never imagine living in such a dystopia. Such chaos can only be defeated when the brave rise against and revolt, even in the smallest of ways. Winston never did anything that was morally unsound, but it was all illegal nonetheless. He's a calm, easy going, rebel. I admire that he stuck to his guns throughout the novel. Down with Big Brother!

- Severus Snape of JK Rowling's Harry Potter series- Nobody likes Snape. Until you get to the chapter entitled "The Prince's Tale" in Deathly Hallows. The reader finds that Snape is not motivated by hate, disgust, malice, and evil, but rather love, longing, tribute, and good. He risks his life over and over to make sure that his unrequited love's son is safe, even though he can't stand the sight of him. Severus is a kind soul that was hardened by bullying and the "wrong crowd" which is something a lot of people can relate to.

Favorite Movies: Silence of the Lambs, Apocalypse Now, American Beauty, Gone Baby Gone, Dumb and Dumber, Schindler's List, Everything is Illuminated, Gran Torino, and many many more.
