And no, this isn't "Jamie". She was someone he dated in high school who regrets ever laying eyes on him.

This is the question that I get asked a lot because of the way I write -- I don't play around with androgeny or alternative sexuality, I never really wanted to understand whythere are people who want to bend their gender. I grew up to believe men are men and women are women, men are supposed to be with with women and vice versa. I am going to be getting a lot of hard remarks about this but this is where Poppy Z. Brite and I went at it. The answer to those who asked me what is my sexuality is that I am a straight male. I did date a girl who ended up turning lesbian, and that was something that I felt like I was kicked in the balls when that happened. My views toward alternative sexuality are going to make me seem like a criminal these days, but freedom of speech applies to the heterosexual white man as well. I might be involved with the Gothic subculture but only as a writer, I know friends who are involved with the fashion end of things and maybe some of the other aspects. Some of my views might come off as being a little politically incorrect. But then again my upbringing is old fashioned, and hope to find that female who can find that a rarity -- I am rare in that sense of the word. I get a lot of labels but the one that suits me best is rare.
Religion plays a big part on what I do as well -- it is a bit of a surprise though, with as dark as I write a belief in God is there some where. I know there are some who are reading this and wondering how come I think this way, there is a long story to that though -- it is rooted from being a Boy Scout. I don't mind being called "the last boy scout." I get called that some times by various friends of mine especially when it gets colder out. The women thing is that I want a woman who is also straight and will eat meat -- I am one who eats a lot of red meat. I would make the occasional joke to friends who are vegan of if they know of a good steak house.
