I also love Manga and Graphic Novels.

I just finished Solanin by Asano Inio - The title, Solanin refers to a love song that is also a farewell. This beautiful manga is about making the transition from collage to adulthood.

I also just devoured…Eating Steve: A Love Story, by J. March Schmidt…Yum!

Influences

Joseph Campbell is my greatest inspiration because he loved and promoted the concept of stories as being sociologically and anthropologically important. He inspired me to incorporate ethics, philosophy, psychology, and science in my writing to make my audience think without shoving these concepts in their face.
