Me real name is Thomas Childress.
My writing style is, well I don't what it is. However the genres I prefer are dabbling in science fiction, fantasy, sword and sorcery/high fantasy, and some hard boiled detective type pulp fiction. Currently I am enrolled in the Library Science/Information Technology program at a local community college and hopefully transfering to IU.
My influences tend to be Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Gaiman, Bradbury, Adams, Ellison. From a comic point of view I read a lot of Eisner, McCloud, Jeff Smith, Gaiman, Conan stuff, Pekar, Waid, Simonson and a lot of everything else and especially silver age and the like.
I started writing as early as kindergarten. We had to dictate a story about a random color. I got green and while everyone was mucking about with stories about blue skies and the like I had one about a green mailman eating monster.
I used to travel in a full time drama company as a performer/writer/director but that has been a bit. Some years ago I was writing copious amounts of short fiction and tried submitting to F&SF and others, got rejection notices of course and some with personal notes from editor (assistants).
The last thing I really wrote was my Smart Monkey mini comic that I also drew. I learned a lot from it and my next one will be much improved from the layout and printing process.
Currently writing not much of anything and I need to get back to it after a considerable dry spell. School does get in the way of that so I am going to punch up and throw out there for consideration. Hoping it will prime the well so to speak. There is school to consider as well, it tends to get in the way sometimes.
