This week's subject is interesting: which of our books would we like to see as a musical, and who would write it?
Well, damn it, I say dream big.
I'd have to say my first novel, UNDER THE OVERTREE would be my suggestion. There's tons of teenaged angst, hidden desires and dark motivations to consider. Really, it's sort of a coming of age tale, but on the dark side. I can see it lending itself to the musical format.
So now the question is, who should write and design it?
The answer I simple: Freddy Mercury, David Bowie and Prince. Seriously, those three together? Can you IMAGINE the showmanship? The passion and angst? WHEN DOVES CRY, mixed with SAIL AWAY SWEET SISTER and finished off with SPACE ODDITY. My God, what a show they would have made.
I can't imagine a better combination unless you throw in a little early Elton John.

Music and Mayhem
I write fiction, a little of everything and a lot of horror. I've written novels, comic books, roleplaying game supplements, short stories, novellas and oodles of essays on whatever strikes my fancy. That might change depending on my mood and the publishing industry. Things are getting stranger and stranger in the wonderful world of publishing and that means I get to have fun sorting through the chaos (with all the other writer-types). I have a website. This isn't it. This is where you can likely expect me to talk about upcoming projects and occasionally expect a rant or two. Not too many rants. Those take a lot of energy. In addition to writing I work as a barista, because I still haven't decided to quit my day job. Opinions are always welcome.
