A funny/spooky video for "Dance Of The Chupacabras" is available on YouTube:
I write by my own rules and
am proud of it. After being ignored by publishers due to my
unconventional stylings, I decided to self-publish Author's
Drafts of my books -- the writer's truest vision, containing the
quirks and eccentricities of how I would like my tales to be
read. My talented sons started a website with me to
tell about our family and promote our various creative works by
providing book excerpts and samples of our other literature,
artwork, videos, music and more.
My writing tends to be humorous, horrific (oh, that sounds bad, I mean horror-filled, is that better?), thought-provoking, poetic, and I like to use big words. I like to make up words, big or small (usually big). I like words, especially words that rhyme.
