“Algerian Rhapsody”

Apparently, many comparisons have been drawn between Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and Albert Camus’ “The Stranger.” Someone finally took the next step and mashed them together in a video.

“Critics, both journalistic and academic, have speculated over the meaning behind the song’s lyrics. Some believe the lyrics describe a suicidal murderer hunted by demons or depict events just preceding an execution. The only thing we borrowed was the instrumental track.The latter explanation points to Albert Camus’s novel The Stranger, in which a young man confesses to an impulsive murder and has an epiphany before he is executed, as probable inspiration.” -Wikipedia

“Dreaming I Die” is LIVE!

I am thrilled to announce that the third and final installment in my Dreaming Trilogy, “Dreaming I Die,” is now live on Amazon.com in paperback or Kindle editions. Took me four years to write these three novels. I wrote them in such a way that they can all be read independently of one another, but they make the most sense when read in order. All three books now have slightly different covers that show off the cover paintings much better. #Fiction #HistoricalThrillers #LucidDreaming

I can’t WAIT to see this movie. I wrote about Eichmann in Buenos Aires in my second novel.

A snorkeler enjoys Jellyfish Lake, on the island of Eil Malk, one of the Rock Islands in Palau, Oceania, by photographer Ciemon Frank Caballes. I wrote about this lake in my second book, Waking I Dream!

Let America Be America Again

“Let America Be America Again” is a poem written in 1935 by American poet Langston Hughes.

I’m excited to announce that my second novel, Waking I Dream, is now available on Amazon in Kindle and paperback. Waking I Dream is the sequel to Dreaming I Wake, and the second book in the Dreaming Trilogy. In it, we find that Jim McQueen’s disabled sister, Joan, does indeed lead a rich inner life. In her potent dreams of another life, in another time, Joan is a math shark with a photographic memory, a WWII-era OSS undercover agent and cryptologist, and a globe-trotting Nazi hunter. This is the world that is most authentic and tangible to Joan.

The Hero’s Journey

Every good story follows the concept of The Hero’s Journey, first described by Joseph Campbell. This supercut shows scenes from some of the best.

A term paper assignment launches an existential crisis in the mind of Exurb1a as the deadline approaches. As time runs out he must fight distraction and question the very meaning of life itself, or maybe just end it all.

This is a touching article written by one of my best friends in high school. Please feel free to share it.

“At the beginning of his run for President, Donald Trump spoke at a rally in South Carolina. On November 24, 2015 in front of approximately 10,000 people and on camera, he physically mocked Serge Kovaleski, a disabled Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter. (ABC News Youtube link). In doing so, he told his listeners that a physical handicap makes you different than, and less than, someone else. He told America that a deformity means you deserve less respect, less humanity than someone who’s ‘normal’. He told you it’s ok to mock me.”
