About – Thanks For Dropping In!

Hi there and welcome!

This geeky, lifty, lefty, and nerdy blog is a sister blog to my film review site, Late to the Theater.  Check in over there for some of my overblown opinions on film and TV shows! The title is a silly reference to two things I enjoy: mud races (I’ve done two Tough Mudders)  and HBO’s Game of Thrones.

I have a variety of interests, and I am always learning and exploring new things. I believe that it’s better to learn something and not need it, than need it and be too stubborn to admit you don’t know something.

I studied Creative Writing at the University of Central Florida under such writers as Pat Rushin, Jeanne Leiby, Peter Telep, and Jocelyn Bartkevicius and graduated in 2002 with a BA in English. I used to write for Gothic Beauty magazine, and have worked as an Instructional Designer the last five years.

Books I Have Written:

  • Virago is a high-fantasy novel with elements of horror, noir, humor, and action. It’s inspired by my love of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books and HBO’s The Wire. Virago is available from Amazon in both Print and Kindle formats.
  • The Secret Wilderness is a high-fantasy/horror/fairy tale prequel to Virago that is available in both Print and Kindle formats. It was inspired by my love of Angela Carter’s ‘The Bloody Chamber’ type tales and also the Southern Gothic writing of Flannery O’Connor.
