Born and raised in Rhode Island (yeah, that tiny blip of a state) I’m currently a grad student in need of a graduate program. I attended Clark University for my undergraduate degree, receiving magna cum laude in psychology and summa cum laude in English. I attended graduate school at Oxford and received a Master’s degree in psychological research. I’ve traveled around the U.S. and Europe and have plans of getting to all the major continents at some point, preferably before the cephalopods become the dominant species on the planet (No more sushi after that. Damn it!). I am an avid music lover with many genres welcome on my mp3 player. I am an acrophobic who loves rock climbing and an arachnophobe who doesn’t mind cohabitating with the skittering monstrosities as long as they stay in their corner. I like curry and tumeric and will try to add them to anything.
I’ve grown up around horror movies and, not surprisingly being a Rhode Islander, H.P. Lovecraft was one of my major literary influences. The other being Stephen King which, being of this generation, how can anyone not be influenced by him or hope to not be caught in the literary giant’s huge shadow? John Carpenter is one of my favorite horror directors and you should go see “In the Mouth of Madness,” one of his lesser known masterpieces. I’m also very interested in fantasy (mostly urban fantasy, dark fantasy, not so much of the Tolkien variety) and noir and like to combine the two with a sprinkling of horror if I can. I think my writing is becoming more of a hybrid between different genres so hopefully no matter what you’re into, I might have a little something to offer.
Updates come every weekend so keep checking in.
