Bewildering Stories biography

I’m an American, but I’ve lived in Europe for the last 28 years, first in France, then Holland, and now the UK. I’ve found European life suits me. It didn’t take me 28 years to realize that, but it’s the reason I stayed.

Before coming to Europe, I worked in movie theaters. Movies and writing have been my life. I’m convinced that what we see on the big screen is the way we think, that the images we see there are a template for what we see inside our heads. I try to create those images in the stories I write. For me, it’s only a movie.
