JUVENILIA



THE RIP TAPIOCA SAGA: I wrote this ridiculously lengthy comic sci-fi trilogy during study halls in high school, inspired by Monty Python, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, and two Omaha radio jocks named Otis XII and Diver Dan Doomey. Expect to see satires of social convention and ham-handed parodies of celebrities from the 1980s.

INK, INC.: Remember those annoying literary magazines in high school? While attending a swanky school in Omaha called Creighton Prep, I became a frequent contributor to the prestigious compendium of writing assignments and poetry revue known as Ink, Inc. At one point I was the most-published writer in the history of the darn thing. Click the links below to see some of my less embarrassing moments.

BATTLE OF TWO WORLDS: There's very little excuse for this derivative, sexist, unsophisticated relic from my youth.

The battle doesn't even take place on two different worlds. Can you ever forgive me?
