"Raw and savage, but distinct" - Harlan Ellison

"A Force of Nature, that draws upon Earth, Air, Fire, and Water, and transmutes them through literary alchemy into wonderous things."

" In an age driven by personality and gorged on ego, the absence of such things, succeeded by humility and humbleness, in the form of a writing talent unequaled, is a welcomed and wondrous gift, that reminds through contemplation and reflection, spiritual and meditative, of what is most important - our humanity. "

" One of the most original minds and talents of the 21st Century. "
