The Mysterious Divination of Tea Leaves – By the mid-2000′s, I had received hundreds of rejection letters for my stories, most of them form letters (“Dear Author …”) or, more insulting, “Not for Us” stamps on the story itself. I began wondering what kind of person was rejecting my stories, and Ronald Fegman was born. This satirical and perhaps viciously humorous tale is my imaging what my nemesis, seemingly located at every publishing house, must look like.
On the Future of Art and Art Criticism – The question “what is art” is both more simple and more complex than it might seem at first glance. Andy Warhol once quipped“Art is whatever you can get away with.” Is it? His observation raises some interesting questions: How does one go about judging a work of art as “good”, “bad”, or “better than” something else? (link takes you off of this page)

Great Interviews and Other Stuff
When working on the successful Kickstarter campaign for my next novel, Only Everything, I conducted a dozen interviews with thought leaders, artists, and visionaries to get their thoughts.
t the end of each interview, I ask each person the same two questions (and some of the answers are incredibly inspirational and powerful!) :
- Do you tell your own children they’re special and can be anything they want to be?
- What would you tell a young man or woman just leaving college or just entering the stream of adulthood?
You can watch these free interviews over at Only Everything.org.
