I'm a gentle Marylander living in Memphis, the third most miserable city in the country. I write, I edit, I make sure my daughters don't get kidnapped, I drink a lot of coffee, and I occasionally plan an orgy. I keep a shameless and frivolous website, The Girl Circus http://www.thegirlcircus.com. No, the half naked girls are not me. I edit for The Legendary, http://www.downdirtyword.com. I love doing it. I love it more than marijuana and masturbation. I am in the process of starting a small press for print adventures. I, I, I...too many I's. Oh well. I love you, and your words.
I'm crazy, doesn't that mean I'm supposed to be creative? I can't help myself.
It's really very compulsive. I have to write or I turn into a Twilight vampire. I know, it's terrible!
I write because having an orgasm in public is frowned upon, but writing a poem is OK.
My favorite authors change every day. When I dip into The Legendary submissions box I add a few more to my list. My very favorite books are the ones that haven't been written yet by the amazing voices I read while just doing what I do.
Katie!!! Where have you been? I've missed your work here. I hope all is well. Thank you for your great comment on "The Rest Home." Hope you're back to stay a spell.
Thanks for your comment, Katie, and for the invite!
Hi. I just saw that you were diggin' Homage to Jack.' Thanks.
It was a blast doing that. I may have to do some more. Neato.
Hey Katie! Thanks for you comment on 77 Words About Nothing! I'm jazzed you dug'em.
Thanks, Katie, for commenting on "The Rest Nowhere." Glad you liked the poem!
Thanks for your comment on Fill Me Up, Katie. I appreciate your feedback!
Thanks for the comment on "Enjoyment," Katie. Poor, blind rat indeed!
Hi Katie - Thank you for reading Parking Garage and the comments. Appreciated.
Hi Katie! Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment on "This Is How It Is" I value it and appreciate it very, much. I am really looking forward to reading your work and visiting your "shameless and frivolous" website! I'll be in touch. By the way, since you live in Memphis, if you have the time - check out the work of Sonja Livingston - recently moved there from my neck of the woods and is a professor at the University - her recent book -Ghostbread - is fantastic! mgm
Thanks, Katie, for liking 'How to Make it Through the Night.' One from The Legendary, a fine zine, is on my story list, too.
By the way, a "not so gentle almost life-long Marylander" here too. College Park/Greenbelt/Silver Spring/New CArrollton (DC area).
Hi KATIE!!!!! So great to connect with you here. Always grateful for including my stuff in the brilliant The Legendary. Cheers!!
thank you VERY much Katie for your lovely comment and favorite on my story "I Married This"! It was strongly appreciated. Hope all is good and see you around here!
sorry about that! I love your bio. Thanks for liking my latest.
Thank you so much for your kind words on my piece "Travelin' Light."
Thanks for the comment on my latest. Cheever is so damn good.
I'm pleased you came away with something from my story, Katie, and appreciate you reading it. Thanks very much.
Never hard enough :)
Thank you, Katie, for your wonderful comment on "The Anniversary."
Thanks for the invite!
I loved living in Memphis, but that was seven years back. I guess it's deteriorated a bit since then, but the delta, its ghosts, and the river are fine fodder for stories and poems. Nice to have you here, Katie.
I have a working profile up. Now to figure out how this thing works...
A small press should always be for print adventures. Good luck!
welcome, katie. i LOVE your bio. not too many i's there. i think. cheers -ff
