My name’s Phil, and I go by a number of pseudonyms that often tend to feature penguins (it’s a long story). I’m a graduate of Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, with a Bachelor of Arts in English with a Concentration in Writing, which makes me feel like I’m an official writer. I say “official” in the sense that I officially have a need, deep down in my very DNA, to write, and I am officially a very broke person with a very expensive piece of paper.
My writing almost always favors a humorous tone, as I’ve found I cannot go for long stretches of time while being completely serious as tiny alarms go off in my head. If I ignore those for too long, I fear I could very well explode. Or melt. Maybe spontaneously combust. I enjoy writing both fiction and non-fiction, with one of my extended non-fiction pieces being used as an example of how to handle non-fiction pieces correctly in a college course. Yes, I’m totally bragging about that for a moment. I mean, come on. How cool is that? You’d brag, too, if you were required reading in an advanced level college course (or, honestly, you should; that’s pretty awesome stuff). My fiction, on the other hand, often finds itself being of a more science fiction or fantasy nature.
I am always interested in the possibility of working with other writers, or artists (especially artists, because I can’t draw at all), and for any queries regarding collaborations, or the possibility of writing guest posts (like my Wreck-It Ralph review on Onezumiverse). Or, if you’d like to share some of your brain-thoughts on my blog-page in the form of a guest post, I’d be very interested in ideas for that as well. Anything of the previously mentioned nature should be e-mailed to misadventuresinfiction [at] gmail [dot] com. For those of you interested in more bite-sized portions of my snarkiness (as well as some drunken live-tweeting), follow me on Twitter @SnarkAndBourbon. You can also see all of the awful selfies and adorable cat pictures I post over at my Instagram, @misadventuresinpictures.
