The Sanguine Woods (TSW), my original blog, was started by me, writer and blogger, Michael “Mick” Albright in 2014 as a literary blog. I wanted a place where I could feature my own fiction, graphic design/art work, poetry, and thoughts on the work of others in those and other creative areas. TSW quickly took on a life of its own, going off into odd areas such as the “Fortean” and macabre; the socially conscious; the photographic; things “Lovecraftian”, and even the poetics of song lyrics. Basically TSW now covers a miscellany of topics about which I am passionate.
I am a professional science, engineering, and technology writer, in addition to a free-lance technical and creative writer and editor. I have been writing in these fields for 17 years. I write poetry and fiction under the pseudonyms Sanguine Woods and Mick A. Quinn. I also administer a “writerly advice” and discussion blog called The Writer’s Cabin; a Gothic arts blog called The Gothic Tower; a burlesque-type blog on the feminine in fashion and history called The Maudlin Cabinet; and a brand-new, wicked-cool blog about supernatural oddities called Haint-Blue Shudders.
In 2015, Mick took on a partner, fellow writer and academic and lover of the Fortean, the
unidentified, and the mysterious, Woody Dexter. Woody, who is a very talented writer and musician in his own right, administers and provides content for the blogs mentioned above, as well as for Woody’s own blog, to which Mick also contributes, called The Extraterrestrial Highway. Who doesn’t like a good UFO mystery? A peek into Area 51? Conspiracy Theories abound! And this is the place to go to learn about them.
You can reach Mick and Woody via the Comments feature on any of the above blogs; and via email, directly, here:
Thanks for stopping by, friend.
