I'm more active on Wattpad, so follow me there if you like: "CliffJonesJr".
I'm a coder by trade, a linguist by education, and a writer by vocation. I've written instructional books on programming, taught English at home and abroad, and managed a college writing center.
What I love to read and aspire to write is slipstream, the genre of the weird and mind-bending. I'm drawn toward abnormal psychology and alternative modes of communication, probably because I grew up with a severely autistic younger brother.
My literary hero has to be Philip K. Dick. I've consistently loved his work more than any other author I've read. (And Hollywood loves it too, obviously: Blade Runner, Total Recall, Minority Report, A Scanner Darkly...)
