1. What were you in your life before you became a writer? Did this influence your writing? It’s my take that I’ve always had the words and books fulminating, churning, and readying for birth. I think writers are born and life hones that calling. So, I’d say by profession I’m a depth psychologist and writer, treating the deep unconscious mind and writing books about archetypal/supernatural happenings for the past thirty-five years. Stories I’ve lived through with traumatized patients have confirmed the workings of an unseen world, a mysterious zone that’s forever been an influence from childhood to adulthood. The magic of the mystic helped my wife of forty-years, Kate, and I to raise our four children – two phantasmagoric writers and two alchemical artists.
2 Are you genre specific or general? Why? I don't mean genres like romance, mystery, fantasy etc. There are many subgenres of the above. As far as genre, my reads are visionary/metaphysical, supernatural/occult, and horror. They got the stuff that pops the top off the rule bound and rigid mind.
3. Did your reading choices have anything to do with your choice of a genre or genres? What I read is laced with visionary intrigue. They’re the psychically titillating stories that whisper to me, tell me things about life and the images and symbols of the dark recesses of the mind.
4. What's your latest release? Goddess of the Wild Thing breaks into the question of love and whether bad love is better than no love. You’ve got a consciousness oriented narrative replete with archetypal themes of the wise-old woman, the witch, and a man and woman struggling to find their way through a complex and, at times, horror-ridden relationship.
5. What are you working on now? I’m finishing up The Goddess of Everything. It’s a horrifying, visionary thriller about mother love gone bad and the need to break free. It’s got action going from what folks live out to one degree or another, the instinct to be free of stifling parenting, free to live and be according to our own choosing.
