About My Books

Check out some excerpts from my books.

I started writing down a lot of my innermost thoughts in 1990. Writing and journaling kept me from killing myself in high school, and kept my head straight after high school. Seriously, if I didn’t have a personal journal or the desire to write down all the shit that was hurting my feelings, I would have seriously ended it all. Writing kept me going (even more so than music).

In 1994 and 1995, I would share tons of my writing with friends and crushes online, as the internet was first becoming popular. Everyone I shared it with loved how brutally honest it all was. I still write the same as I did at 16.

In 1995, I self-published my writing in a local (Ft. Myers, FL, at the time) ‘zine called “Meanwhile” which only lasted two issues. After that, I self-published a fold-and-staple book called “The Empty Kiss” that I sent to 50 or so online friends at the time. I kept writing, and I wound up self-publishing nine books over the next fifteen years.

2015 marks the 25th anniversary of how long I’ve been writing my thoughts down (I wouldn’t consider it “poetry”…… more so “spoken word” or “free verse” or “journalistic” whatever).

Since I’ve shared my writings publicly for 20 years now, I figured it was time to finally collect all these writings that first appeared in fold-and-stable books (and later PDF), and turn them all into actual paperbacks.

The first book, Writings: Volume 1 is available as of August 2016 (link at the top of this page). All of these chap books/e-books will be subsequently published and released as Writings: Volume 2, 3, and 4 (200-250 pages on average), throughout the rest of 2017. Each book will be a compilation of three or four of the chap books, in chronological order. They will also be released as kindle-ready electronic books. After these four are released, there will be a compilation book that I will release, which will contain selected work from all four volumes, entitled “Time Is Ruthless.” Stay tuned!

P.S. If you’re wondering who does the artwork for all the books… I’m glad you asked. Every drawing is by my good friend Hanna-Dora Fazekas from Hungary. Check her instagram out.
