I like words. I like the way they sound, I like their sub­tle shades of mean­ing, their power and their ori­gins. I like to make up my own words, roll them around on my tongue and see how they feel. I write sentence fragments. I often will use a sentence because I like the rhythm and cadence even if it doesn't perfectly mesh with the sentences surrounding it. I write “email” without a hyphen. I am a big fan of the phrase “muy­muy”. I have a love-​​​​obsession with the comma.

I like to put words together, occasionally they even make sense.I often write non-​​​​sensical fan­tasy and sci­ence fic­tion, orshort flash fic­tion about dogs, cyber­netic mum­mies or canine detec­tives that shouldn’t exist. Kind of like the Won­der Twins if they had more imag­i­na­tion. [2] I’m not sure you call what I do writ­ing, but it’s the clos­est descrip­tion I can come up with.
