Dear Angel of Mine

Author’s Note

I’m a storyteller writing in-between things. The goal is to be like a light, to reach outwards and to shine, relentlessly. Mostly, I write because I exist. My ideas are made of the stuff of counter-narratives; Reader’s Digest; Hip hop, and corn fields; dead brothers and loneliness.

The events, places and characters are inspired by real people, places and events. Here you will find music reviews; short stories; original works of poetry and general essay writing.

The rest of the time I spend developing films and television series. This is an anthology on the fragility of information. I chose this overarching theme because of the rule that one truth can only be contested and dismissed by something else that is true.

My strategy introduces enigmatic forms of writing by mixing rules and expectations established literary forms. This is an anthology in real time, so it is liable to collapse into a way to express my existential despair. Nonetheless, the poetry is sensual and heart felt; the stories are provocative – call it the bane of my existence. This may very well be Trap writing.
