Friends call me Petit Reynard, ‘ti Reynard, Fox, Foxy, Sionnach, and many fox-derivatives. My tattoo artist calls me Dr. Frenchy.
Scholar, opinionated, leftist, liberal with my affections, a dreamer, Faerie-blooded, naturally curious, and a bit of a moon-gazer.
Thick-bellied, Fat-Assed, Beefy, Furry, Beardy Dudes have a special place in my heart and in my bed…and down my throat.

When I go to someone’s home and they have bookshelves, one of the first things I do is peruse their books. There’s something about looking through someone’s books that feels like I am getting to know something about them, their interests, how their mind works, what their passions may be…
My home is filled with plenty of books, hundreds of books, if not thousands…
Here are a few of my favorites:
