Welcome to my website: Night of the Living Text!

These cyber-pages provide an afterlife for my film reviews and columns from the Santa Cruz, CA weekly Good Times. If you missed one of my columns, or you want to look up my review of a current movie, or one you just got from the DVD store, this is the place to find them.

I'll also keep you posted on my various fiction projects, including the swashbuckling saga begun with my first novel The Witch From The Sea.

So feel free to snoop around, and thanks for reading!
