Stephen is a playwright and author of The Marriage of True Minds and A Transcendental Journey.


Doubt not, O poet, but persist. Say, 'It is in me, and shall out.' Stand there, baulked and dumb, stuttering and stammering, hissed and hooted, stand and strive, until, at last, rage draw out of thee that dream-power which every night shows thee is thine own; a power transcending all limit and privacy, and by virtue of which a man is the conductor of the whole river of electricity. Nothing walks, or creeps, or grows, or exists, which must not in turn arise and walk before him as exponent of his meaning. Comes he to that power, his genius is no longer exhaustible. 

Ralph Waldo Emerson

O Frabjous Week!

This is a landmark week, the first since I published A Transcendental Journey where I sold at least one copy of each of my books. 

Thank you, kind and gentle reader(s)!

Thinking Ahead

It's the only reason I can imagine for the fact that I never seem to buy what is at the top of the grocery list. And since I always start my grocery list with the items I forgot on the last trip, there are some things I will never own again.

Shuck, Stephen, just scrap the list and walk up and down the aisles and buy whatever you fancy.
