“What concerns me is not the way things are, but rather the way people think things are” – Epictetus

“If evil be spoken of you and it be true, correct yourself; if it be a lie, laugh at it.” – Epictetus

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I'm a Simmer, I tumbl, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my lifepartner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
