"My work may be garbage but it's good garbage." Mickey Spillane
This is my grandmother who I loved very much and the reason why the bulk of my fiction, especially the Chimquar stories, Journey of the Sacred King Quartet, and the Dark Brothers of the Light series were written about dark skinned protagonists.
The character of Isranon was heavily influenced by reading the work of Ghandi.
Sure, I’m a racist. *wink* I like dark-skinned people better than light-skinned ones, because of the association in my emotional being with my grandmother. I thought for years there was something wrong with me for being born blonde and blue-eyed as if that made me inferior. Go Figure?
