I was raised up barefoot on the fertile soil of Alabama by artists and musicians, I escaped to the Gulf of Mexico at 19 and then blundered out of a bad marriage into the military at 25. For the last decade I've served as a military journalist in some of the most amazing and the most harrowing places in the world. This is my journey from life to life to life, paved with words. My travels continue, my writing continues...but with a different filter. The apophenia of pale shadows is not a spirit I can give rest, nor keep to myself.
