"...an up-and-coming writer that's doing it right."
That's how Jason Rodriguez, editor of Postcards: True Stories That Never Happened
, recently characterized me.
I like to think he got it right, because I love writing comic books. There's nothing I enjoy more than working with a talented artist to bring a story to life.
So far, I've had the pleasure of crafting stories with fantastic artists such as Juan Romera, Renzo Podesta, Noel Tuazon (of the Harvey-nominated Elk's Run
), and Marvin Mann (of the also-Harvey-nominated The Lone and Level Sands
If you're an artist who is as passionate about telling stories as I am, I'd love to talk to you. The stories I write are generally real-world, character-driven drama – except when they’re zany retro comedy or high-concept summer blockbuster or creepy horror or something else that tickles my creative fancy! Heck, I’ve even got a couple of superhero stories in me, given the right artist.
I've had stories published this year in 803 Studios' Sequential Suicide
anthology and Frameworks: A Study in Sequential Art
. This fall, I'll have not one but two
stories published in the Eagle, Eisner, and Harvey Award-nominated anthology, Negative Burn
Next year, I'm on tap to have stories published in a major anthology by Random House/Villard and an anthology titled Dear Santa, Let Me Explain...
that James W. Powell, assistant editor of Postcards
, is putting together.
