About Me

I am a writer and college teacher prone to raging enthusiasms that come upon me without warning and occupy my mind the way an army occupies a subjugated country.  Suddenly I find myself reading a book or watching a DVD over and over. I haunt fan sites online and spend money on ridiculous paraphernalia to satisfy my strange hungers. Such behavior might be acceptable were I fifteen, but I’m much older.  Never mind how much. I’ve come to think these enthusiasms and obsessions define me in a profound way, and I want to understand them. Dreambeast is my attempt to do that.

I’ve chosen Pegasus for my masthead because it’s a mythical creature that springs from our collective dream and because it combines the two animals I love most, birds and horses. Pegasus is my Dreambeast.
