Author has written 22 stories for Love, Life, Nature, General, and Romance.
Likes: Writing (duh), reading (duh), romance novels, talking, the feel of sand between my toes, the ocean (or any other body of water, for that matter), the color blue, Japanese Maple trees, the littlest Tele-Tubby Poe, fluffy pillows, animals, knee socks, and sunflowers.
Dislikes: Stupid people, the green stuff found in the body cavaties of lobsters, seagulls, incorrect grammar, wearing shoes, wiener dogs, Thomas the Tank Engine, Soft-Top brand surf boards, cocky people, soup ladles, and daffodils.
"The first step – especially for young people with energy and drive and talent, but not money – the first step to controlling your world is to control your culture. To model and demonstrate the kind of world you demand to live in. To write the books. Make the music. Shoot the films. Paint the art."
"The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. stone crumbles. wood rots. people, well, they die. but things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on."
"The lower you fall, the higher you'll fly."
"We all die. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will."
"Only through destroying myself can I discover the greater power of my spirit."
"All God does is watch us and kill us when we get boring. We must never, ever be boring."
"There's always the chance that you could die right in the middle of your life story."
"No matter how much you think you love somebody, you'll step back when the pool of their blood edges up too close."
"Maybe this is why so many serial killers work in pairs. It's nice not to feel alone in a world full of victims or enemies. It's no wonder Waltraud Wagner, the Austrian Angel of Death, convinced her friend to kill with her. It just seems natural. You and me against the world..."
"Your birth is a mistake you'll spend your whole life trying to correct."
"Marla tells me how in the wild you don't see old animals because as soon as they age, animals die. If they get sick or slow down, something stronger kills them. Animals aren't meant to get old. Marla lies down on her bed and undoes the tie on her bathrobe, and says our culture has made death something wrong. Old animals should be an unnatural exception. Freaks."
