Hmm...what to say, what to say. I write crime fic. - tending toward the dark with a bit o' humor thrown in. Recently started editing for Spinetingler. I do some voice acting for Coyote Radio Theater - mostly comedy and/or mystery stuff ("Kyla Jackson: Temp Spy," "Little Janey: Pet Detective," etc.). Do some sound editing and recording. Active with local art scene - mostly event stuff. Used to paint all the time (abstract oils), but now I mostly do the words on the page thing.
Live in the mountains of Northern AZ with the hubster, two dogs, and a turtle. Spend a lot of time perfecting the art of procrastination and getting in touch with my inner lay-about. Spent several years working with kids with mental illness and/or developmental disabilities. Now I write. And read. And write some more.

I love your show. Thanks for the podcast comment. Seth has asked me to add a bit for a future show. I'm just starting out with podcasting and I can sure use some advice. Can I contact you regarding this?
Thanks for steer toward Miss Snark. Unfortunately I didn't follow her when she was actively blogging, but I have gone back and read many of her archives. Hysterically funny woman with a good mind.
I followed your advice and pulled up the crapometer on synopsis. As bad as mine is, it is just a smidgen better than some of those. At least when my beta readers finished mine they didn't look up at me and go,
"What the hell was that about?"
Question for ya' . What is Coyote Radio Theater. I am a huge fan of radio theater and collect the old shows when I get the time to dabble. Are you guys doing contemporary radio theater? Is it local to Prescott or is there anyone in the San Antonio market carrying it? I'd love to hear some of the shows. Check out my crimespace page for an old Dragnet. I think it was the second show aired and didn't even have the trademark "Dum de dum dum music intro. There is also the radio version of Maltese Falcon.
I don't know how to answer that. It should have been finished a long time ago, but it hasn't (life). But I've only got the denouement left and I basically know how that's going to come out (about 5 short chapters left). How about you? Working on the same story or have you moved on to another one? BTW, I've visited a few of your online interviews...great stuff.
