Getting older - I've probably been there and done that, kid - married white guy with three kids William Lee aka Liam, Silvey Marie, and Declan Pratt. The wifes name is Tina Marie. I like football, deep books, bourbon whiskey, playing guitar, and games. I have made some studies into comparative religion, mythology, and by extension what would be generally called the occult.

I've been a comp'd writer for Fantasy Football Mastermind and a comp'd feature writer for StarCityGames writing about the trading card game Magic the Gathering. My StarCity Archive. I'm trying to write more, mostly science fiction although not exclusively so.

What you'll see in my blog...

Ritin/skratches. 50,000 plus words a fiction n poetry. Essays when it suits me, usually politics and issues pieces. I use lj cuts for the long stuff.

Links to cool stuff. I'm judge, jury, and executioner. I'm a voyeur that likes to look at extreme things and viewpoints. However! I'd consider myself a moderate with slightly left leanings. I can appreciate true conservatism but draw a mean line on reactionaries, wingnuts, and fascists.
