Introduction

I'll tell you more when you tell me yours. ;)

Patience, grasshopper. You must use the force. Nothing MacGyver couldn't solve... My fledgling company is DCF Press. It's new, but it has my palm print on it. Take a gander there at Bringin' Gas & Dialin' 9: A Seven Score Addiction to the National Pastime. Writing is just about the only thing one can do to live on permanently - buildings crumble, pictures fade, memories blur, but words can remain visible and understandable long after we pass from this mortal coil. (That's why that Socrates guy still gets play!)So that's my story, and I'll stick to it until I come up with a better lie.

Bragging rights
I have nothing to brag about - its a braggadocio world enough all ready!
