Frustrated idealist? Black humorist? I seem to be big on droll parables that map the wretched and the absurd.
It’s called comic fantasy.
I’m a California ex-pat and have lived in Asia for over 25 years. My stories are dappled with the character and spirit of Asian communities. I teach writing in university and have jotted quite a bit about the joys and sorrows of the creative process.
I’ve settled on two places to live and write—Kyoto, Japan, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I use both cities as springboards for frequent forays to other regions of the world.
I’m silly, and we really should write who we are. But I get these weird compulsions to lay down healthy streaks of horror, too.
I like to write, and I hope you read me.
