The Heart's Gasp
There's that moment - you know the one - when things seem to fall into place.  That moment when your ideas, beliefs about and dependencies on the feelings of another person fall into your lap as nothing more than empty words and silent tears.  The time spen...

Where The Heart Is?
Can you remember the day you left home?  Was it on a plane headed to a place far away?  Maybe you left  in a car, headed to, (what seemed like then), a huge college campus?   If you really concentrate you can, I'm sure, remember everything about that day.  ...

Lonely Hunger Pains :: A look at Howard Jones' "No One Is To Blame"
As children we are devastated when we hear the word no .  As adults, we are far less likely to hold our breath in the middle of the toy department of a store; certainly less likely to throw a visible tantrum, we still grit our teeth and abandon logic when s...

I'm not sure when INTEGRITY got thrown out the window, but I was extremely saddened to watch it destroy me.

Story
Tagline
Writer: Fiction Novels :: Gothic/Vampire
Introduction
From early childhood, the written word has been a place of refuge for me.  I have used it as a learning medium, a refuge from the occasional irritations of life and a shield against the torrential rains that sometimes pour on us all. I have enjoyed writing since my formative years.  Journal ramblings, crude poetry and chaotic short stories gave way to a more refined style and a larger vocabulary... by the time I got my masters' degree (USM - Go Golden Eagles!), I was equipped with the tools and knowledge to write... well, nothing... I went back into radio and stuck to my academic pieces dealing with interpretation and business planning.    Then it happened... The idea hit me out of the blue one sunny day as I strolled through the Marigny district in NOLA.  Full blown, it nearly floored me.  I began taking notes that day on the history of a legendary vampire - Gastone of Nice'.  The novel, now at over one hundred pages, is set to be finished in July, providing I continue to write at the pace I've set so far.  I've had really good responses from a couple of publishers and it really looks like this is going to happen... to me... I know, right? So, there you have it... Rod the wise... or Rod the good... or Rod the court jester... either way, I'm glad to be me :-)

    Business and Leadership related courses. The one thing that stays with me is that as humans we adhere to patterns - market trends, stocks, commodities - they are all predicted through patterns. You can see all you need to see in a person by paying close attention to the patterns they employ. A deviation, no matter how slight, means something. When enough patterns converge on a single idea or activity, you know something has changed.
