After publishing my story "Birth Control," Emprise Review asked if I was interested in giving an interview. It's my first as an author and probably my last.

Drove my wife's orange convertible Volkswagen bug to the beach this day because she needed my car to shuttle some furniture for work. I wasn't feeling too masculine as a result and it carried over to my surf session as I proceeded to surf like a chick while Danny and Xavi killed it in the small stuff.
Filmed and edited by Kev and Xavi.
Tim was one of We Being Brand's first team riders. He won the first and only We Being Brand/Levitate, Head of the Class surf contest. My claim to fame will someday be that I was the first person on the South Shore to recognize his talents. Now he is going to school at Santa Barbara City College (my first teaching gig out of grad school) and surfing all of my favorite spots in Ventura/SB. Here's some footage of Tim ripping some small waves at C Street in Ventura the other day.

My mom is now on Facebook. Most nights, she is on Facebook while under the influence. The other night, while reading various posts on my wall, she got it into her head that I was cheating on my wife. I am absolutely not cheating on my wife. Never have. Never will. But my mother has a brilliant imagination. Always has. Always will. Vodka and Facebook only enhance her powers as an overbearing, yet extremely psychotic and loving Sicilian mother. It's a good thing that her arthritis keeps her from texting to her full potential.
And yes, that is a picture of me and my parents; aka, my oedipal triangle.
