Who am I?
Dustyn is just zis guy, you know?
Alternatively I'm a writer, hopefully soon a published Author, and hopefully soon after that a best selling author, then maybe a jet setting globe trotting author. I'll try not to get a head of myself though, so for now I'm a writer. I focus in fantasy and horror but try my hand at other things as the voices tell me to. In the past I've been a Paranormal Investigator, I ran a group for roughly 10 years and had many fun times, because of family obligations I had to stop doing it. I do miss it though, there is just something about walking around a house, building, or cemetery that might be haunted in the middle of the night that really gets the blood pumping.
I'm also a father of four, a husband, an animal lover, I have a Basset Hound as my primary dog and my wife has a Lhasa Apso as a small back up dog. Then we have a cat that actually rules the house and keeps both dogs in line. I'm a proud geek, I love Doctor Who, was a big fan of Top Gear U.K. until Jeremy Clarkson was sacked. I build computers, I'm a minor gamer, I have played LARP (Live Action Role Playing) games, I've played D&D, and I wish they would bring back Firefly.
Lets see what else could a superfan possibly want to know about me... I usually listen to big band music when I write. When not writing I listen to... well... pretty much everything. I love Glenn Miller, Dave Brubeck, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Pink Floyd, Mozart, Volbeat, 2pac, Eminem, Macklemore, Joe Satriani... the list goes on an on. I like music almost as much as books.
That brings me to favorite Authors. Stephen King, Douglas Adams, Neil Gaiman, Col. David Hackworth, Dennis Foley, Leigh and David Eddings, Terry Pratchet, Jim Butcher, J.R.R. Tolkien, Dean Koontz, Ray Bradbury... yeah this list goes on as well.
Favorite fantasy creatures. Dragons, Phoenix, Dragons... I love dragons and have the tattoos to prove it.
Favorite historical period. The Golden Age of Piracy... I love pirates... sea pirates, not music, movie, or book pirates.
Favorite Mythology... toss up really, I love most Native American beliefs, and Celtic Mythology. Though I enjoy reading all others as well.
Favorite Sports Team. I'm not a huge sports fan to be honest but I am a proud member of the Chief's Nation. For those of you unfamiliar with sports ball, that means I watch football and I'm a fan of the Kansas City Chiefs.
Hair Color: When I was younger it was a dirty blonde, now I like to say I dye it Neon Clear.
That's about it I guess. If there is anything else you want to know about me just ask and I'll probably answer.
