Hi – my name’s Jemiah. I write books by inclination, and proofread and manage workflow for comic books by vocation. Here you’ll find info on my published works, thoughts on and previews of the upcoming Dark Horse projects I’m doing, a bit about me, and then a bit more about me.

Link me!

It was just my birthday. I threw a party in the back yard. It rained about 1″ that day. We had a great time nonetheless.

I give my most favorite bands and albums multiple years where I don’t listen, for fear of burning out. The funny thing is, if I’m going to burn out on a song or an album, there’s really not a lot I can do about it – and it usually doesn’t happen because it’s ME listening to it to too much. Anyway, I’m back on the Bauhaus-and-diaspora tip for now, and it’s just as remarkable and beautiful as ever.

Writing.

I started watching Fellini’s Casanova last night, via Hoopla via the local library system (all hail)! I can’t tell if it influenced my dreams last night at all – I didn’t really properly sleep until after dawn, which is becoming quite typical – rather spending the night in a state of semi-aware drifting, much too tired to get up but unable to attain that sweet unconsciousness we all crave. Anyway, Donald Sutherland, in his youthful prime, has thus far worn a massive silk cloak over a fetching cotton spaghetti strap romper situation, and in the scene I’m currently paused in, a confection of candy-pink stitched swirls and leg o’ mutton sleeves, and I’m like, Ahh, Fellini, you just get me, don’t you?

it’s an interesting time to be black in America. it usually is, but this week has been extra interesting.

How abruptly the world changes under one’s feet; like an earthquake that exposes an entire new set of physical circumstances. As Muad’Dib prayed, “Bend like a reed in the wind…” or pop imp Howard Jones cheerfully suggested, “Bend, don’t break!”

 

oh hey, cool, that’s right, I have a website!

not much to report, though, not really, if you don’t count a really intense Once Upon a Time in Hollywood obsession (and yeah I am watching it right now – again – fifth time – plenty more in my future). I wrote some fanfic about it and I intend to write some more.

I dunno… I’m just sort of drawing inward these days… I can’t figure it.
