When you are here you will read the latest and greatest adventures of Parson Slang, slide into a comfy seat in a coffee shop and read my poetry, and slither into and out of some quick short stories. I write mostly horror stuff (thanks Stephen King), and I think you'll enjoy the scares I have to offer. On top of that, you will also get to read about my stay-at-home dad adventures and amateur tech talk - very amateur. I'm no expert, but I do enjoy the smart things we have.
Thanks for stopping by.
BIO: I was born in Bristol, Tennessee, in 1972 and grew up in a little town in the Appalachian Mountains called Abingdon, Virginia. In those small town days I fell in love with many things, among them reading. Reading was a way to escape from a town whose borders always seemed to be too tight. I discovered my love of writing in college, under the influence of various Stephen King novels. The first time I read a novel by him, I knew I would need to write for the rest of my life.I finally earned my degree in Media Writing in 2004. At the time, I intended to make a path in the screenwriting industry. I quickly found that writing screenplays didn’t capture me, so I turned back to writing short stories and novels. In the process, I learned to apply many screenwriting techniques to my writing. Quick, fast, and always moving forward, pumping like a heartbeat – that’s the way I shape my stories.
