Much of my work is pretty dark, perhaps disturbing even, but please let's remember people, that these are works of fiction. And even though I may have been inspired by things I've seen or feelings I've felt, i doesn't mean that I'm actually depressed. Well, maybe I am a little. From time to time. Per usual.

I am very much a fan of Stephen King, or any horror writer for that matter, probably why my work is the way it is, and I am slowly working my way through his books. I believe I'm on my 37th one now, the Bachman book collection (rage, the long walk, roadwork, and the running man), and I recently finished Firestarter and "It" before that; both were amazing by the way. Very powerful. His wife and son are both incredible, as well. But I enjoy many different genres, as I said in my one poem's introduction, I'm also reading the Lord of the Rings right now, too. And i recently bought "Holes", used, for like a dollar; and I wouldn't be surprised if I read that one too.

I am an umemployed bricklayer, struggling to find work, and have been looking for a while now. It's quite frustrating, but at least it gives me plenty of time, and much inspiration, for spitting out my written works. I enjoy writing, though know, i could and should be a lot better at it. The Gollum poem I recently wrote, was particularly fun to write.

Anyway, a little about myself:

I love pizza, and watching movies. I actually aspire to write or direct movies one day, though as i get older that dream seems to slip further and further away. I had hoped maybe writing could be the hidden back door into that field as so many before me have already found. One comes to mind, obviously, Mr. King. Through his words and inspiration and his writing tips, I've been trying to follow the dream ever since. But every year goes by, and the reality sets in that it is probably just that; nothing but a pipe dream. I keep getting off track, whoops! I enjoy much tv and music. I really love Big Bang Theory (Bazinga!), and just about everything on TBS. Including their recent show, that just ended Thursday, the King of the Nerds. I really enjoyed watching it. But I like a little of everything. Same goes for music. My favorite has to be DMB though, for I've seen them more than any other band, I think 8 or 9 times. But I like a wide variety, from classical to country. Though really not that much country, there's only a few songs I can stand, the rest I really could do without. But i like to say and use the word 'howdy'. Go figure! I can't stand tomatoes. but love pretty much anything you can make out of the fruity, little bastards. I don't mind tomato soup, but hate tomato juice. It's weird, I know, and I really don't understand it either. As for movies, you probaby guessed it, I like horror. But I love most movies, really. To me they are almost like works of art in a museum, even the bad ones that most people hate, must be good and have at least some merit; for they are hanging in the very same museum. So props to anyone that's been involved in any moving picture artform and got recognized, whether good or bad. You're still in the spotlight. At least, the spotlight of my mind.

This is actually part of the prize for Synesthesia's Cyberpunk Competition that Seven took First place in. I had to come up with a new character to be put into the second installment/ novel of The Silver Sparrow Series. Here's what I came up with. -Km2-

A balding, elderly man working in a shop in the deepest depths of the city works on making his potions and elixirs. Almost always wearing goggles and thick rubber gloves on his hands, for he is almost always working on his craft. Now he sits, breathing heavily through his manditory respirator, mixing his latest batch of moon elixir. Smiling deeply, though no one would ever be able to tell. His eyes hidden behind the goggles, but consisting of a fine silver hue. Though, again, only a few have gazed upon them. His hair, what was left, a wirey tangle of salt and pepper. The salt winning the battle for total dominance. His body a frazzled, frail, remnant of what it once was. Becoming jittery at the first slip in concentration, due to the many years of handling the toxic, high-grade, pharmaceuticals. As he then finishes mixing up the moon elixir, he quickly checks his plans. Preparing to work on his next project,  a very powerful potion for the Dark Prince. Comet elixir, it will be called. And the creator's name, the alchemist, is: Vladimir Coelho Razzil.
