Cool sibling Monday


Well, Tuesday for those of you on the opposite side of the world.

My brother and I both write, although we write totally different stuff. He is mostly a sci-fi/horror/mystery writer, and has been published in several anthologies. My work has chiefly been nonfiction (I used to be a reporter and I am still a freelance writer/editor), along with a children's book that I'm trying to hawk. (Any ideas?)

Anyhow, I've been nagging him forever to get a web site, and voila! Tonight it went live.

I forgot all about the picture above, which, judging from the fireplace, was taken at my late great aunt Marie's house one of the summers we visited her. Which means I took it, or she did, and amazingly, the three of us didn't collapse into fits of giggles before we got a photo.

I'm not sure he'd want to share the more graphic bits of his fiction with her, but I am sure she would be (or is, depending on your frame of mind) proud of him.

I certainly am!

So check out his site. He has some of his work posted so you can read it.

Fantastic! I love the photo you posted but I also love the current handlebar mustache photo comparison on his site. Funny stuff! Congratulations to him!

I have two brothers. They do not write. They do not blog. I think I was mixed up at the hospital with the child of a beautiful gypsy on the run. One day she will find me and I will discover that I have fifteen sisters who are all glorious little thieves and fortune tellers.

I had a quick look, but will be back later for a longer read. Love those mustache photos. :)

It's great that you and your brother have writing in common.

Great photos! :D Can your brother sing? I can see him as one of the new members of the Village People! :D

Haven't had a chance to read anything on his site yet, unfortunately preparing for up and coming discos is filling my time at the moment.

Darth: I don't think he's knocking them ;O His facial hair changes from time to time. For all I know, he has one now.
Aliceson: I agree!
FB: You know, we ARE twins, separated at birth by just a few years. Most of the biological family I have - well, I think I have more DNA in common with bananas.
Lynn and PT: Thanks! I think the whole thing is cute.
Mike: New word?
Joey: He can, and he can play guitar and keyboards! VP revival?
Shionge: Enjoy!

Scarlet: He is pretty adorable even if he is my little brother, who drove me nuts until I was about 30.
Pounty: Thank you, dahlink ;)
