About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Writer
Location Hummelstown, PA, United States
Introduction I now have more than one blog here -- one for my work (poetry, creative nonfiction, and occasionally flash fiction), and one for my lifelong hobby, collecting horror films -- and apparently I have to have the same profile biography for both of them. So I now have two "About Me" pages. Check out the relevant one.
Interests Writing (particularly poetry, short stories, film reviews), singing (solo and choral), watching/collecting movies, reading, long drives with my partner on beautiful days, spending quality time with my partner and my pets, meditation, Reiki healings, walks, prayer
