I'm an avid reader, mainly of novels and nonfiction history. I'm also a writer, and although work has recently bitten deeply into by time at the keyboard, I'm continuing to write novels, and I do regular book reviews for an e-zine called Black Gate. My circle of friends is small but close, and I have three siblings and a few cousins who might as well be brothers with whom I keep up close contact.
I un-ironically enjoy long walks on the beach, as well as long walks through mountains, forests, and pretty much any other terrain. I try to spend at least a couple nights a week doing martial arts at a local dojo, and on off-nights I go on short-runs or do a little weight training while watching movies. When winter rolls in I'm hoping to step up my snowboarding game.
I also enjoy the occasional bout of video gaming, anime, and even boardgames and tabletop RPGs. In fact, I'm a rather good Dungeon Master.
