Welcome to DamienNow.com. As many of you may know, I write a weekly entertainment/pop-culture column for the Las Cruces (NM) Sun-News. This site will primarily be used as a working archive of those columns, becoming more comprehensive as time permits.
I may, at some point, post some poetry or short fiction that I've written over the years. (If this is something you'd care to see, let me know by dropping me a quick comment or sending me an e-mail.) If you are a writer, and you have creative work or topical journalism that you'd like to submit for publication, feel free to click on the "Submissions" tab.
In addition to being a professional writer, I also have a career in radio--my "day job." Over the years I've interviewed Barack and Michelle Obama, Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, Bill Cosby, and a host of rappers and singers. If I can find ways to creatively incorporate celebrity interviews on this site, I may also feature those here.
Feedback is genuinely appreciated. If you read something and like it, or have thoughts to share, please leave a comment. (If I know you're reading, writing seems to have more of a purpose!)
