    Why Storytelling?
    Why is storytelling so important to me? It's quite simple, really. I believe that we create our world through the stories we tell about ourselves, others, and the world around us.

    Try as we might, none of us can escape the power of stories. If you find yourself disagreeing with me as you read this, that too is a story — further illustrating the ubiquity of storytelling.

    Like the mythic character, Mercury, story has the power to inform and obscure — sometimes both at the same time. I write to inspire and inform, often using techniques borrowed from symbolism and myth to create poetic prose.
