My first solo book... - 8/23/2015
My first solo book is being released.
The Heart of a Hurricane is Fear on a Stage in a Monsters Ballet
The August 29 Love Letters of Shadow Angelina Starkey

The night of August 29, 2005 I wrote a love letter to New Orleans. I begged her to survive.

Each year on the anniversary I write another. I am releasing a hand bound book of those letters paired with 11 of my photographs of this place that I love so deeply.

Hurricane Katrina and the destruction of the federal levee system changed the lives of everyone who lived in the city of New Orleans.
It changed the lives of those who love this place.
It forever altered the way that many people see and feel about this country.
For others it was a sad confirmation of what they already knew.

Each book is be $10. If you'd like it mailed, continental shipping will be an additional $3.50
I'm taking orders now. You can click that little Buy Now button below or you can get one from me in person.
Make sure you use the dropdown menu for specifics.

A special thank you to Next Left Press and Geoff Munsterman
for being the only person that I would have trusted with this work.

If you're in the New Orleans area, I strongly urge you to
run, do not walk,
to this location and get yourself some incredible food.

How did I let it go this long? - 11/21/2009

Changes abound both personally and professionally. And every single one has been for the best, for the awesome and for the beautiful.

NOLA by Night Fall 2008 Cover

NOLA by Night is a freely distributed publication listing various clubs,
attractions, restaurants, bars and stores that will attract the wayward alternative visitors in the New Orleans area.
The aim is to provide a traveling handbook that will be useful to tourists as well as locals in need of an overview of alternative businesses here in our weirdly wonderful city.

An updated issue is released for each holiday season to encourage the awareness
and growth of the unconventional New Orleans nightlife.
And, of course, this season is Halloween.
So keep your eyes peeled and pick up your copy of NOLA by Night,
cover photograph by yours truly featuring Rob Richards and Kerry Jessica Brown, the Southern Belle from Hell!

I am over the moon.
I have been reading her books for near 13 years.
The old characters are like old friends.
The new characters like the people I knew pre-Katrina.

I am honoured and have to admit that the sliver of baby goth bat that didn't quite die and still lives somewhere in my veins
squee'ed and bounced and chain smoked some cloves upon finding out.
