In case there was any doubt, "TallMisterHall" refers to the fact that I am 6'9" tall. It's not rocket science!

Growing up with Mom and three significantly older sisters, it was seldom my turn to talk, so I took to writing instead, and knew it was my calling by age 5. There was also a long stretch of stage acting which, in addition to being fun and introducing me to some life-long friends, helped teach me to reach into the psyche of each character. Thrown into the mix was my experience working on the creative section of The Baler, my high school's paper. I parlayed this into work on the annual publication for the Writers' Gathering as well. By the time I was 21, I had added experience publishing at CSU, Long Beach, finished the first draft of my first novel, and published an issue of my literary magazine MOD.

And then... Well... As many college students discover, I had a lot of things to learn that can't be found in a classroom.

A decade and a half later, I'm in the middle of a major reboot. Among other things, I've taken that first novel and moved from very rough draft to published novel. As well as a companion novella.

And then there is the Empyre: Preview Edition. Empyre was conceived as the pilot of a primetime soap, in prose. Complete in and of itself, the project is also the introduction to a larger series.

I would say, the overriding theme of my writing is coping with an outsider status. Long before I came out, I was a male minority in a house of females. My sisters were all teenagers when I was merely five.  I tested well and was typically segregated into a group of five students who were sent off to a corner or an entirely different room to work on more advanced studies, or even special projects like a student film. After my parents separated and eventually divorced, maintaining two separate households rendered ours a lower-income family, which had a pronounced effect in Orange County... As a reader, it seemed as though the dominant attitude towards the true individual was conform, or meet your doom. Instead, in art as in life, I always strive to have my outsiders find one another, to form their own little Island of Misfit Toys. Not for the purpose of setting a new trend that the world will want to follow, but merely to live life on their own terms, even if the 7 billion other people on Earth never notice.
