Places I Love

My entire library is carefully cataloged at LibraryThing and Shelfari, and I'm an avid fan of BookCrossing. If you love books, these are two links I highly recommend you visit - and two communities you definitely should join.

Places That Motivate Me

The Internet is a wonderful resource for writers - so many things to help you along in your craft, inspire, and motivate you. My favorite of these is EditRed. My latest additions to the site are constantly updated on this widget:

Places I Create

Though being a full-time I.T. Tech pays the bills, along with freelance writing, I run my own small web design company, Scorpion Ink Web Design.

My passion for web design is paramount to my passion for writing. I love it - and I do it as often as possible. Mixing the two is about as close to heaven as I can get; which is why I also maintain and write the following blogs: Star Suck, Fan Suck, Halls of Stupid, Love My Gut, and my regular day-to-day blog, Sunshine and Farts.

It's no secret that I'm a total geek who spends a lot of my personal time online. My personal website is; which I maintain with the help of my legion of one-legged, hunchbacked, hair-lipped gnomes with psoriasis. I don't know where I'd be without those gnomes.

I'm an avid gamer and (of course!) have sites for my favorite games and my many characters: The Sims 2 (skaSIMlaki), Everquest II (EVERlaki) and World of Warcraft (WoWlaki).

I have lots of other little sites and side-projects; too numerous to list all here. If you're so inclined, you can check out my Other Sites and Side Projects section of my main site.
