MY PET HELLHOUND is a short animation currently in pre-production. It tells the story of a misunderstood hellhound and his unlikely friendship with an imaginative tomboy. Here’s a sneak peek at the storyboards by artist Vincent Lee:
Extinctly Delicious follows the time travels of a chef, a scientist, a robot, and a genetically engineered hamster. It is currently being co-produced by a British producer/director and myself. Short script Extinctly Delicious was a winning script at the 2012 London Lift-Off Film Festival. It was performed live by a group of actors at the festival. Here they are at rehearsal.

Also, it is worth mentioning that smoking would have nothing at all to do with the death of this seemingly healthy, moderately successful, and generally–as some might have been overheard saying–“plucky” young individual. Actually Stephen Patient had never really evidenced much active interest in smoking. He merely picked up the habit when he’d begun writing his novel a few years ago. His suspicion was that the “process” of smoking would help with the “problem” of inspiration. With that in mind, it is not hard to imagine that Stephen Patient wasn’t actually a very good writer at all. However, he wasn’t a fool.

Back in 2004, I wrote a [strange] poem. It was printed in The Mangrove Review, the now defunct literary magazine published by The University of Florida. Presented for your reading pleasure:
