About Me

My favorite letter in the alphabet is 'S'. So many wonderful, wonderful, words.

Snarky, snappish, screws, snorts, sojourn, somnambulism, sarcasm, spacious, supple, slovenly, slavish, swoons....

"Let be be finale of seem.
The only emperor is the emperor of ice-cream."
--Wallace Stevens

Why do you write?

I write because I can. Because it's something I'm truly confident in. Good at it? Perhaps. Love it? Always.

All the little ramblings in my head need to be put down on paper. Language astounds me, music inspires and I love to twist words into newness.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Too many to remember...but here's a go...

Favorite authors:
Stephen King
William Faulkner
SE Hinton
Alice Sebold
Allen Ginsberg
Hunter S Thompson

Favorite Books:
The Electric Acid Kool-Aid Test
The Road
Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas
The Book Thief
The Mercy of Thin Air
The Mists of Avalon
Rosemary's Baby
As I Lay Dying
Threads
The Great Gatsby
The Outsiders
The Lovely Bones
Geek Love
The Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing

Beate Sigriddaughter – Feb 12, 2012

Thank you for your comment on "The Anniversary." I like the word honesty--it's why we write fiction, isn't it, to be able to express honestly.

Bill Yarrow – Feb 10, 2012

Thanks, Jules! Glad you liked "Babble.

Oh, and thanks for reading my shit and stuff :)

Jack Swenson – Mar 20, 2011

Sorry, Jules. No, nothing bad is going to happen in "Big." My dad was a hunter. He liked knives; I feel the same way. Objects of beauty. No more dangerous than an attractive woman.

Mary Lane – Mar 08, 2011

Soon to be deleted – Mar 08, 2011

Descanso says muchas gracias, Jules.

Neil Serven – Feb 14, 2011

Congrats on the pub in Blue Fifth Review. Any story about bowling is all right by me. I’m a pretty serious league bowler (except we bowl candlepins up thisaway), and when my current girlfriend asked me out to go bowling with her as a first date, I nixed the idea because I knew I would be more focused on winning than on making a good impression. Your story reminded me of that.

Swanson Tudor – Feb 14, 2011

Jules -I'm glad you enjoyed Perfect. And that is my real name. As a kid Swanson did cause me a bit of trouble in school so when I could I went by Rick, short for Ricky which my grandmother called me because of her love for Little Ricky on the TV show 'I Love Lucy.'

You're the best, Jules. Thanks for your review of "Wipe Your Feet."

Ginnah Howard – Dec 13, 2010

Jules, I appreciate the "Great" on my poem, "You Are." I taught junior high English: The Outsiders was always an up for us all. That and the grisly stories of Raold Dahl like "The Landlady."

Thank you reading and commenting on "Dog" - and for the fav! It means a lot to me that you read me. And take the time to comment. And are generous with your stars. Thank you!

Erin Zulkoski – Dec 07, 2010

Hi Jules! Pleased to meet you in the annonymous internet sort of way :) That's a lie--we probably all know each other better than our own friends and family--we're writing, and by doing so, we divulge our insecurities, passions, hopes, etc, without speaking a word.

Ouch. That got a little heavy for a second. Sorry. Anyway, good to be here, and eager to read more of your work!

P.S. I'm a nice drunk. Mostly.

Jack Swenson – Dec 05, 2010

Jules, thanks for once again giving me a boost with your nice comment about my "fishing" story.

Thank you, Jules! I really appreciate your reading and your generous comment and I look forward to reading your stories and so many others here as well!

Cherise Wolas – Nov 28, 2010

Jules, I have reading to catch up on, and I think I missed a poem of yours that's at the top of the recommended list!, but I wanted to say thanks for your insightful comments on Gin And A Cowboy. I've cut more words since its original posting, and I think you were right about the "Luthers". Initially intended for effect, then perhaps to keep clear the speaker, but ultimately unnecessary... a great thing about asking for actual feedback! So thank you, fellow Poe!

M – Nov 28, 2010

So glad you liked loon, Jules, and I really liked your comment. You're awesome! -- Q

Kathy Fish – Nov 27, 2010

Jules thanks so much for the kind words for "Repair Man." I'd say, as magical realism it has its own reality, so it's a little strange. But I appreciate your having a look and commenting!

I'm so glad you liked fly, Jules. Thank you for your kind remarks and for the fave. Have a great weekend. -- Q

Please forgive my lack of sophistication. Is * a typo, or I'm not sure what. All these sideways faces and such are confusing to me. I am not sure why you are clearing your throat ("Ahem."). Sorry. I think you are being nice, and that is nice, too.

M – Nov 22, 2010

Kathy Fish – Nov 08, 2010

My pleasure, Jules, "Mama's Mass" is superb storytelling. It's so moving. You have the confidence to be subtle in your storytelling. You just paint the scene and your characters so vividly and naturally. I will not soon forget that image of the mother and daughters walking to mass in the dark wearing their black coats and black gloves on a snowless night. I can see it like a film. Gave me goosebumps. Truly, I love your story.

Cherise Wolas – Nov 08, 2010

Hey Jules, fellow drunk Poe writer, thanks for the great "awesomeness abounds" on Unpacking Sentences! Much appreciated. I think I have a story of yours to catch up on!

Bill Yarrow – Nov 02, 2010

Don't know about "life lessons," but thanks for commenting on "Convictions," Jules. Glad you liked it. Reading anything 50 times though sounds like a punishment to me!

Much thanks, Jules, for reading Sweet Sour and saying cool things. Notice, of course, the words "sweet" and "sour" both begin with that wonderful letter S, as does my name. Just saying. Stay wicked.

Bill Yarrow – Sep 29, 2010

Thanks for the great comments on "Son of Uncle Sam." Love the flag insight.

Julie Innis – Sep 26, 2010

Jules, thank you for the close read! That line def. doesn't work with the typo. Where you at, girl? I need to buy you a beer.

Susan Tepper – Sep 26, 2010

Marcus Speh – Sep 26, 2010

what a wonderful thing to say (about 'La Pointe Courte'), jules, thanks ever so much.

Claire King – Sep 24, 2010

Oh no, the girls thing, not yours Jules! I claim lack of sleep although it is brilliant so there's an implied compliment! Now I'm going to see what you *have* posted lately!

Claire King – Sep 24, 2010

Thanks Jules for all your attention to my flurry of posts this week. Of course I'm happy you liked Godfrey, but even more pleased with your lovely comment on the more serious Anything Again and the fave! Much appreciated! I'v read your extended 'Girls' but was in too much of a flap to comment properly. I'll be back for a second read! x

Jack Swenson – Sep 23, 2010

Jules, I am happy that you liked my shrink story. That guy was a piece of work, believe me.

Jack Swenson – Sep 21, 2010

Well, in real life, my neighbor does love his cats, & I know that at times, he gets pretty peeved at his wife, so, well, maybe....

Bill Yarrow – Sep 20, 2010

Thanks for commenting on "Epithalamion," Jules. Glad you liked it. Yes, not much else to say about it. I agree.

Michelle Elvy – Sep 19, 2010

Thanks, Jules, for the comment on Escalation. Very much appreciated!

Glad you liked "Bone density." Thanks for commenting, Jules.

Frank Vander Rasky – Sep 07, 2010

Jules, thanks for your lovely comment on “Sono Canadese” (I am Canadian).” I’m glad you had fun tagging along with a Canuck in the Italian Riviera.

Bill Yarrow – Sep 04, 2010

Thanks so much, Jules, for finding and commenting on "Parabola Tango." It's a rushing stream of stories these days!

Frank Vander Rasky – Sep 04, 2010

Jules, many thanks for stopping in to read "We Have Eskimo Bars" and for your nice comment on my use of language and humour. As I know from your blog that you read Payboy in your spare time, I am especially glad you enjoyed it!

Bill Yarrow – Aug 24, 2010

Enjoyed your comment on "Parables for Rodin," Jules. Thanks for reading and commenting.

"Especially the way the words flow and linger after each section." Yes, for me, it's all about the sound of words. Section 4 is just names, but I love how those words in that order roll off my tongue.

You are also right ("...linger") that the stanzas are all periodic in the sense that the last line in each intends the smack.

Franki Elliot – Aug 19, 2010

Thanks for the vote of confidence, i was a little scared to post that story! :)

Jack Swenson – Aug 18, 2010

Jules, my eyes always light up when I get a note from you. Thanks for saying such nice things about my party story.

Larry Strattner – Aug 17, 2010

You got it Jules. We know what to do at Wal-Mart...Always. Thanks.

See ya – Aug 17, 2010

Thanks for reading No Instructions. Very cool of you.

"flow-y"--makes perfect sense. Thanks for commenting on "Self Alaska," Jules. Glad you liked it.

Jules, You are my kind of person! Thanks for your kind comment about my story "Worry." And you have been nominated as "Favorite Human" of the day by our nine cats!

Bill Yarrow – Aug 09, 2010

Hey, Jules. Thanks for faving "Theorizing Salsa." Glad you liked it!

Claire King – Aug 09, 2010

Thanks for reading and commenting on Infinity Pool. For me, at the end, she's drowning. But is the ending her reality, or is the pool really an infinity pool? I like the fantastic version...

Bill Yarrow – Aug 08, 2010

Not wrong! Not wrong! Thanks for commenting on "Something, He Wrote."

Bill Yarrow – Aug 08, 2010

"With your poems - even though I may not get all of them…I get a gist and I love the writing.
Just had to tell you."

Lovely of you to say and wonderful to hear. Thanks, Jules!

Bill Yarrow – Aug 07, 2010

re: ending of "Small Potatoes." Don't have a specific idea in mind except to say something totally unexpected, unpredictable. Something with the effect of an icepick to the gut. Unleash your imagination on us. When you figure it out, it will feel exactly right.

Bill Yarrow – Aug 07, 2010

Jules, your comment melts me. I'm humbled. Thank you.

Susan Tepper – Aug 07, 2010

Jules, thanks for the read/comment on forest in the early morning, I found it interesting that you sensed them as kind of polar opposites, thanks

Bill Yarrow – Aug 05, 2010

Thanks, Jules, for commenting on "Par Delicatesse." Hunger, yes, but for what?

Kim Conklin – Aug 02, 2010

Thanks for the great comment on Allergic to Love, Jules. I appreciate the read.

Larry Strattner – Jul 29, 2010

I have no editor but the folks on fictionaut and I thank you for it. It is a much better sentence/and story now. I am in your debt. LS

Jack Swenson – Jul 26, 2010

Hmm. Are you a feline lover, or do you love felines? Very interesting. Thanks for your comment on my cat story, Jules.

Bill Yarrow – Jul 22, 2010

Jules, thank you for your kind comment about "The Semaphore of Civilization" and my poems in general. Your generous reading of my work means a lot to me.

Meg Pokrass – Jul 22, 2010

i only wish the people who truly did hate me would just say it! You're wondrful. Thanks for your nice words about Contortionist Love!

Michelle Elvy – Jul 20, 2010

Indeed - the nerve of her, turning off Tom Waits! Thanks for the comment on French Kiss, Jules!

Bill Yarrow – Jul 19, 2010

Glad you liked "Processes," Jules. Thanks for commenting. I absolutely agree with you that life is much easier in writing than in living.

Susan Tepper – Jul 15, 2010

Jules, thanks for reading and commenting on my story All Credit Rescinded, yes, she was very smart to get out of his car!
cheers!

JM Prescott – Jul 14, 2010

Thanks for your comments on my Tea Time Story and Bookmark. And have I mentioned I love your profile pic - I'm envious of it actually. Cheers.

Neil Serven – Jul 13, 2010

Thanks for the kind words and fave on "Down Cellar," Jules. So glad to hear you enjoyed it.

J. Mykell Collinz – Jul 11, 2010

Hi, Jules, thanks for reading Unoriginal Sin. I appreciate your comments. It's encouraging to know when story elements work.

Cherise Wolas – Jul 11, 2010

Hi Jules. That is completely bizarre that you would dream of my name! But so glad you reached out to tell me. Given the odd connection, I must immediately hit you as a contact and read your work!

Cheers,
Cherise

Johnsienoel – Jul 07, 2010

Jules, thanks so much to the comment on "Prime Time." It is gratifying to know someone GETS IT. Awesome, and the fave is much appreciated.

Larry Strattner – Jul 07, 2010

Glad to hear I have your favorite letter in my name; and story. Thanks for your comments. Maybe I should replace my f words with s words... now there's a thought!

Jack Swenson – Jul 06, 2010

Jules, always nice to get a comment from you. You give good comment! Thanks for the note about "Extracurricular."

Jack Swenson – Jul 06, 2010

I bet you read Superman (or was it Superwoman?) comics when you were a kid.

Jack Swenson – Jul 05, 2010

Jules, a yay and two goods. Wow! Outstanding! Thank you for commenting on "Extracurricular."

Meg Pokrass – Jul 05, 2010

Hi Jules. Thank you for saying you like my work, it is great to hear it. Very kind of you. I'll see you around Fictionaut! -meg

Bill Yarrow – Jul 02, 2010

Hi, Jules. Really appreciate your comment on "Magritte." Thanks!

Claire King – Jul 01, 2010

Jules, A late thank you for reading and commenting on 'Flash'. I wrote it much too fast, I just went back and edited it. Added another S word too, just for you (slash). x

Jack Swenson – Jun 24, 2010

Oh, I like "J" as well!

JM Prescott – Jun 23, 2010

Cheers, and I'm so glad my blog post was noteworthy for where you're at. I'm getting the feeling that these sort of feelings are going around in writers circles.

Jack Swenson – Jun 20, 2010

Jules, Thanks for your comment on "Naked Ladies." And thank you underscoring that transition. I liked it, too.

P.s. I "S" really your favorite letter? Ahem.

Susan Tepper – Jun 09, 2010

Jules, thanks so much for your read and nice words on my poem
Solitary, much appreciated
cheers!

JM Prescott – May 07, 2010

I'm so glad my comments helped, although I really didn't have any criticism for you. I was only able to point out the guidelines of The Glass Coin - which only apply to us.

Jack Swenson – May 06, 2010

Jules, Thanks for the nice comment about "Secrets." But what a coincidence--S is my favorite letter, too!

JM Prescott – May 05, 2010

"As I stepped out into the bright sunlight, from the darkness of the movie house, I only had two things on my mind: Paul Newman and a ride home."

I love SE Hinton. I read everything by her when I was in High School. She got me into Robert Frost (my favorite poet) and she was the first book I read twice.

Darryl Price – Apr 23, 2010

I LIKE THE IDEA OF WRITING TO ANNOY. But probably any writing is going to annoy. You can't get away from it it seems like.Someone out there is bound to be rubbed the wrong way. I think Abe Lincoln probably summed it up best with that "can't please all the people all the time" thing but if you're shooting for annoying all the people all the time,well, that's a mighty interesting undertaking. It treads dangerous water--that doesn't mean it doesn't have its rewards--so be careful what you put on your card. Although I thought it was rather funny and I wasn't annoyed at all.
