I have eclectic tastes in most things; books, drinks, music and friends!
I am an artist (yes, run away now, run away fast! Not only am I an artist, but I'm a Gemini as well!) that tends to work in bone and metal. As a hobby, I live life and play with fire. I currently live with 1 human, 6 cats, 1 tarantula, an ever changing number of house spiders, and 2 dogs, one of who has the unique talent of being able to drool on his own forehead.
I read and write science fiction, fantasy, horror, vampyre fiction and poetry mainly, but will read almost anything as long as it is not handed to me as I am in an airport or train station.
I used to do special effects for a Live Action Role Playing Game (LARP) that I was on Staff for, and still enjoy playing with fire or explosives when I get the chance. I enjoy the occasional trip to various Goth/Fetish nightclubs and have a somewhat macabre sense of humor and tastes.

Favorite authors include... James Morrow, Edward Abby, Katherine Kerr,Meghan Lindholm (under both her names) Tim Powers, Tahir Shah, Vernor Vinge.
Favorite music: Rammstien, Korpiklaani, Eluveitie, Dead Can Dance, Rashid Taha, VAS, Diablo Swing Orchestra, etc.

I am a card carrying Goth (yes, there is a card!) However, I do not wear eyeshadow...nor can I repeat all the lyrics to every Cruxshadows song, although I do like them rather a bit.

"It is not that people die, in whatever circumstances fate dictates, that is sad and tragic. What is sad and tragic, is that so few people ever actually live!"
