The Daily Musings...

So who is R Kane?

In a word, if someone forced me to use one, would be eclectic. I don’t subscribe, follow, or otherwise allow myself to be associated with anything in particular. Sounds weird I know but I like it all because I can choose from it all. My music taste goes across the spectrum from country to punk, I eat all kinds of food from Southern to Moroccan, and I enjoy both fiction and non-fiction books. I love history and I’m insatiably curious about the future and new technology. I’m just a funny kind of guy, or so I’ve been told.

I was born in the Southern United States around May of 1969 just outside of Atlanta to a working mother and father. I grew up the youngest of the brood, older brothers and an older sister, which afforded me little attention from the family unit. Kind of reversed, right? I always thought, and read, that the youngest was supposed to get all the attention, but in our house it was the exact opposite. I’m still trying to figure that one out to this day. Yet being alone did do one thing for me, it boosted an all ready fertile imagination and laid the all important ground work for my writing these days. Add to that the years of playing D&D, reading all kinds of books from Stephen King to Terry Brooks to Nietzsche, and watching every genre of movie in Hollywood's stable and it’s pretty easy to see why I do this. It’s not only fun to write its hard coded into my DNA from birth. If I try to do something else I’m likely to explode within sixty seconds.

 

And what about this place, R Kane Publications...

Well, in the easiest terms, its here because I am fiercely independent. I barely tolerate working for others, but as my mother taught me so well eating and sleeping under a roof is a good thing which is why I work a day job to pay my bills. Like mama said, you can do your own thing as long as you still pay the bills and take care of your responsibilities. I picked up my resilience and independence from my brothers and sister and my work ethic from my father who was always busy with his hands. Yet the most important thing I took from my family was my mother’s perseverance, to never give up or in was her creed and I live by it everyday.

And that is how this place was born, this online athenaeum of my words and the published format. I chose a different path to walk when showing all of this to the world. My independent streak, my fierceness to hold onto what I create is why I don't have an agent or a publisher or a boss with the exception of my guardian angel. I'm doing this my way, the way I feel is right in my heart and my soul and I won't answer to anyone about it.

 

So we do we go from here?

The only way out is through, or so they say, which is why I'll keep doing what I like to do. This place, or better yet this endeavour, may never bring me fame or fortune but then again I did not start it with such lofty aspirations. No, I started all this because I like to tell a good tale, maybe make someone smile for a minute, and then hopefully brighten a day or inspire if just a little. Yeah, I don't want to take over the world, just make it a better place to walk around in for a bit.
