Welcome to Moonstone – my little niche on the internet. Here are a few new additions: I have replaced the poem “Vancouver Night” with “Debris,” which you can see to your left. I’ve also added a new post illustrating my writing process. On the poetry page, I have uploaded a photograph from the Blue Grotto in Croatia. The complete text of “Flight” can be found on the short story page, and I’ve included an explanation regarding the nature of the Prose Haiku. In addition to some musing regarding the final revision of Zero Time - which should be for sale on Amazon.com fairly soon – I’ve posted a few thoughts regarding a story-in-progress: “Child/Savage in the Garden.”
Literature is the passion that has shaped my life, and I can trace its genesis to a single day in my youth when my older brother, Roland, gave me a copy of The Fellowship of the Ring. Robert E. Howard and H.P. Lovecraft soon joined the ranks of Tolkien, and I found myself on a path of literary exploration that has yet to reach its culmination.
The Lamb White Days is my first published novel. My next major work, Zero Time, is a time-travel story in which wanderers from the near and distant future travel back to our present day. It will soon be followed by a horror novel titled Ashes. This tale explores the lives of an underground society where a modern-day werewolf and vampires seek their prey in the moonlit streets of Canmore, Alberta. I’m also working on a collection of short stories.
When in San Francisco, it’s always important to make a pilgrimage to the City Lights Bookstore.
Then, in honour of Jack and the other writers of the Beat Generation, you’ve got to have a pint at Vesuvio.
