I am a fiction writer who has lived in Los Angeles all my life and like it, even if I don't write screenplays. I write mostly contemporary, urban, or dark fantasy, but occasionally lapse into high fantasy, science fiction, mystery—and I have a day job. I also write poems, but please don't hold that against me. I try to tell the truth as I see it.
CURRENT BANNING POLICY: I've had to ban anonymous comments for the time being due to a persistent spammer. Sorry for the inconvenience to those not registered with LJ. I'll try decloaking after a time to see if I can allow anonymous comments again. I usually like to welcome anyone to this space, no matter your language, although I'm really only competent in English. I've had some recent comments left in Russian, an unidentified Asian language, and Portuguese. I had a Russian friend translate the Russian for me. It turned out to be solicitations for porn. I must assume that if you are leaving a message in a language and/or alphabet I can't comprehend that your intentions are dishonorable. So, if you leave such a comment I'm afraid I will have to ban you. This may be unfair, and I apologize for that, but that's the way it goes.
The PJ Thompsons I Am
The one on LJ (but not LJWorld.com), the one on Dreamwidth, the pj_thompson on Twitter, the one on the Online Writing Workshop, one of the ones on Amazon in the U.S., the one on RT Book Reviews, and on Google+ (which I don't often visit).
PJ Thompsons I Am Not
The basketball player, the one on Facebook, the one on MySpace, the one on YouTube, the one at pjthompson.com (I am pj-thompson.com), the one at LinkedIn, the one on Twitter (pj_thompson on Twitter), the one on Helium, the writer in medical journals, the one on Yahoo Answers, the ones on TravelPod or Epinions, the Chiropodist, the condominium specialist, the one on Creative Commons…the list is fairly endless. Can’t seem to spit in any direction without hitting a PJ Thompson. We are an army. We are mighty.
