We live in a story: all around us, every day, life makes it up as we go along, dark, amazing, confusing, beautiful.

I'm a writer - novels, short fiction, adapted scripts - and an independent director and producer through my company, Loudermilk Productions. My work's been called “theatrical” (Publishers Weekly), “sensuous, startling” (The New York Times), and “subtle and experimental” (The New Yorker). My performance work has been staged in a Victorian mansion, a historic church sanctuary, a preschool campus, a bespoke garden, and more than one seedy bar.

Now I've put it all together to create a new kind of immersive fiction -- DARK FACTORY -- where you'll join my characters in a dance club where reality is customizable, as they lose themselves in music, sex, and play. Until the real world decides to play along . . . DARK FACTORY is a kind of narrative mixtape: the novel in progress, a bespoke video, a real-life DJ party, an ongoing creative world that will take my work in a whole new direction. DARK FACTORY is the reason I'm here on Patreon for the first time, to invite my fans and supporters to be a part of this new story. Thank you for being here! The audience is everything when it comes to a show, and I can't wait to show you DARK FACTORY.
