Around A Turn

  Gently flipping her curly, sand-dune inspired hair, Nicole Brumgardner opens a soda with her long red nails and curses as she breaks one. "I KNEW that was going to happen, and yet I did it anyway! It's like I have to test the universe to see if it's really going to follow the laws of ...


All Alone at the Sixty-Four World's ...

The backstage of the pavilion was simple with its wooden floors and temporary props. The 1964 World’s Fair of Flushing, NY would come and go and no one would remember the little five year-old girl who played with her Barbies in its grand shadow. While some country stars were just cutting ...

About Me

While I was beginning to organize this site, I waffled on whether I actually needed an “About Me” page.

So, I conceded to a “twenty questions” version of an introduction.


Name: Daniel L. Brenton

Age: Let’s just say I was born in the last century. (The latter half, at least.)

Place of Residence: Las Vegas, Nevada. I like this city. If it weren’t for the drivers I’d love this city.

Marital Status: (You know, that’s not one of those questions you’re legally able to ask in a job interview.) Married. My first, her last. All right, my last, too.

Children: (You’re not supposed to ask that one either.)

Originally From: Indiana. About 50 years south of Fort Wayne.

Hobbies: HA HA Ha ha (snort, chuckle).

Employer: I’m a writer, dammit. Next question.

Prefer Cats or Dogs: Cats, yes. I’m a writer, so I’m supposed to have a cat. I don’t have one at the moment, but that will probably change.

Since You’re a Writer, Are You Alcoholic? That’s the tradition, isn’t it? No, I hardly ever drink, period. It’s not a moral issue, it’s just that drinking makes me stupid, and I don’t enjoy being stupid.

Questions I decided not to answer:

Sexual Orientation: (What did you want, a date or something?)

Interests: It would be easier to tell you what I’m not interested in. On second thought, it would be easier the other way.

Race: Can’t you tell from the picture? (Actually, I have a tiny bit of American Indian blood on my mother’s side, from the Miami tribe, which used to dwell in the northwestern area of what is now Indiana. I have no idea why the name wound up attached to Florida. (Seriously. I have a bit of an epicanthic fold in my eyelids to prove it.) Otherwise, I think I’m basically a White Anglo-Saxon Mutt.)

Sorry, no more questions.
