PASSION PROJECT is now available on Smashwords. This 2018 coming-of-age novella will be available for a price that you set! Click on the image above to access this book in its entirety.
Plot: Nick Scoville is the lead singer of a somewhat popular local rock band named Out to Launch. After a terrible performance at a major festival causes the band to experience some growing pains, Nick takes solace by meeting an energetic fellow rock musician, Cathy Caulfield.
They fall for each other quickly, but there is much more to their relationship than meets the eye, as Cathy has many of her own demons to face.
Passion Project is the daunting tale of a man who may legally be an adult, but he isn't a grown-up. And in his new world of love, lust, challenging relationships, and toxic friendships, he must learn to put his past behind him.
It's officially National Novel Writing Month, and I'm signed up and ready to go this year!
My goal for this one is 10,000 words. I am extremely limited on free time, but I love writing, so this will be a fun little project. This will be a coming-of-age romantic drama. I'm going to spill too many details here except what's already in the teaser poster.
If you need a writing buddy, feel free to find me HERE.
I had no substantial plans for Halloween this year, so I decided to go the PG-13 route.
Say "what the fuck." If you can't say it, you can't do it...
I am pleased to announce that I am currently working on my fifth studio album, and it will be available in early 2019. Stay tuned for more details.
Happy 25th anniversary Siamese Dream!!
There may be like three albums I would dare give 5 stars, or believe should be protected by the Library of Congress. This is one of them. Since 25 years have passed since its release in 1993. I decided it was time to list the 13 tracks on this album. This is just my opinion, and yes there is personal bias here.
I usually pick really catchy songs for these lists, but this was the year of very sad music...
Two years in a row, my number one pick is someone's final recording.

I had been saying I wanted to embrace the Stone Cold Steve Austin look for years. And this year, I finally embraced the character himself. Even for one day.
Austin 3:16 said I just whipped your ass!
