Author has written 4 stories for General.

Graduate looking for someone to give what I post a fair reading.

I write short stories, though soon I hope to work up to novels.

Anthony Burgess and James Joyce are my influences, though I enjoy most of what I read. I don't do much genre fiction or fantasy, however I adore Jorge Luis Borges and what little I've read of Donald Barthelme.

I play piano and the fiddle. Beethoven I count as a literary influence, but I enjoy most romantic composers and some modernists. Alban Berg's opera "Lulu" is a favourite.

Big fan of music, particularly these guys. Also, Arctic Monkeys, Florence & the Machine, Vampire Weekend.

My German is fine, my French conversational. Some Russian. Piece of Gaelic and Welsh and Italian.

I like traveling and will do my best to be on my feet for most of the next decade.

Jamie reviews
Relatively personal. Jamie, I mean. His little girlfriends are just the cloying byproducts of a poor imagination. Don't judge him too harshly.

Many of the stories herein are composites from various sources; I have endeavoured to draw them all together in a spiritually and emotionally dynamic way.
