Bio: Hello. My name's Dustin and I have an insatiable passion for the written word. If you follow me, you'll mostly find book reviews and posts regarding my personal writing journey. I'd be honored if you choose to follow me. The arts don't define me, however. I'm also a believer of the Lord Christ Jesus. If this offends you, I won't make any apologies, and perhaps it would be better that you don't follow me. I surely hope my faith (or any differences we may or may not have,) doesn't ever deter anyone from genuine friendship!:) I can only be me. I want everyone to be comfortable here! If not, then welcome. Additionally, I'm the proud father of a soon-to-be three year old, as well as a stepfather of two boys, ages twenty and practically fifteen, and this past August, my wife and I celebrated five years of marriage. Stephen King has been a big inspiration to me over the years, and my passions would not be what they are if I hadn't decided to pick up a copy of Misery in the summer of 1993. Additional influences include Joyce Carol Oates, Toni Morrison, Richard Powers, Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson, David Foster Wallace, and I've recently discovered the greatness of D.H. Lawrence.
