About Jeff

True things about me:

I once worked as an usher at the last porno theater in St. Louis County, Missouri, to supplement my salary working in a medical research lab. I regret one of these jobs to this day.

A professor talked me out of a career in academia by describing it as a sheltered workshop. Still not sure what that says about either of us.

If I could always fly into Long Beach when I go out to Southern California, I'd be a happy man.

I have written in one capacity or another my entire adult life. Of all the various kinds I've done, screenwriting is my favorite, and not just because my first attempt won contests. I like the way it lets me juggle pieces of story in my head. Try that with a novel and you'll hurt yourself.

Also, the receptions at film festivals have waaaay better caterers than the ones at writers' conferences. Is that Stilton on those little things over there? I think that's Stilton.

I write a lot of speculative genres (science, fantasy, alternate history) and some realistic stories and things that teeter uneasily between those poles. I can't call it magic realism because I don't believe in magic. Suggestions?
