Why Writers Should See “The Babadook”

If you like really scary movies, movies that keep you up at night because they cling to you like ghosts and fill your dreamy mind with unease, The Babadook is…probably not for you. That’s my biggest criticism. It’s not scary. It’s cool. It’s dark. It’s kind of creepy. But scary?

New Website is Live

My newly updated/almost completely rebuilt website is live. It took me all weekend, and I’m not exaggerating. I got almost no sleep.
