I love the ocean. I love the sound of waves, the hot sun, the soft sand between my toes. When I lived in San Diego, I spent my summer doing nothing but lying out for hours. My friend Connor and I would get there after lunch and stay out until the skies turned purple and the water swallowed the sun. I love ocean sunsets too.

Away from the ocean now, I listen to waves when I work. The rhythm of the water calms me, helps me get into a zone. I can shut out the entire world while the ocean plays. I can dive into whatever world is necessary for me to be in. First point of departure is the water. After that, all things are limitless.

I've rebooted my website, as you can see. The waves that are playing (which can be stopped at the bottom of the page) are a snippet of the three-hour track I loop while I write. The background is of a sunset down in Cape May, New Jersey, on a beach that is one of only a small handful of points along the East Coast where you can see the sunset over the ocean.  This, I think, encapsulates a little bit of me.

Check back for occasional updates. I have a couple of announcements in the coming months, and maybe a few interesting morsels and ideas to share. I should be better about updating here, but honestly -- I'm trying to write.

But drop me a line. Tell me a story. Browse around. And thanks for coming.
