Here we go.
Who is J.J. Segwis? Great question. When I figure it out, I’ll be sure to let you know.
What I do know is this: I love writing. I love the craft of it, I love sharing stories, I love coming up with the weird and wild, and also finding the little magical moments in the mundane.
For me, writing is a passion. Which is good because the odds of it ever becoming a career are relatively thin. I’ll probably write one of those things that everyone ignores only to love a hundred years later when I’m worm food and have no idea I in fact wrote something good.
What genre do I write in? The answer is yes, which is of course the worst answer. Most of my stories seem to find themselves in the realm of spec lit–sci fi and fantasy probably top the list, with horror following closely. But I’ve also penned a few contemp lit stories, too many comedies, there’s a Western WIP… so yeah, I’m never going to make this into a successfully established career. My downfall will always be that my mind is very scattered, and once it formulates a story out of the ether of my madness, it must be put into words.
Check out the ‘Published Elsewhere’ area to read some of my work, if I ever actually fool someone into publishing said gibberish. I’ve also begun publishing some stories as website exclusives (‘Published Here’, if you needed the guidance), and there are further exclusive short stories available if you sign up for the newsletter (I won’t blow up your spam box–I only use that when I have a new story to promote or a freebie to send out).
I also like turtles.
