About My Universe

Come hither, and I’ll tell you a story…

Every tale must have setting, and I’ve just taken it a little farther. Sort of like the bonus features that come on a DVD or Blu-Ray® disc, the Universe provides near a hundred platforms to carry extra materials about my stories and those from other buddies in the ChaliceMedia stable. IMPORTANT: These live websites are all used for research and development as well as story content. Therefore you may see a site that contains very little content. No worries, follow my blog, or the ChaliceMedia Blog for announcements about new site developments.

One painting… A painting the July 1890 issue of The Critic magazine called “a French psychological drama on canvas.” A painting that sold at Sotheby’s in 1998 for nearly two million dollars.

Fifty faces, each with a story. Fifty stories in the same place at the same time. Some of the stories are at the beginning. Some, as signified by the distraught or dismal expressions are at an end. The rest, somewhere in between.

For several years the images wouldn’t leave my head, and with that came the thought about a small-town filled with people, each at their own point in time, in their own stories….
