My narrative works are part of an interconnected story universe.  They share characters and other preoccupations of their author-auteur — mainly neo-noir, sci-fi crime, the paranormal, pills, the Many Worlds Theory, the cultural irrelevance of Gen X and a dark but redemptive sense of humor. These worldbuilding endeavors are inspired by my experience as a small town reporter (Petaluma, CA — a.k.a. Lumaville) where I grew up, repatriated and recreate (dare I say improve) here.

The column was a sanctuary for those, like me, who fancied ourselves more writer than reporter and now, I continue something of the Reporter’s Notebook ethos in a mix of blog and premium content I call the Journo’s Notebook.
