Hi.  My name is Domnick, but most people just call me Dom.


Writer for The North Woods


Let me start by telling you a little bit about myself.


I’m a co-founder of Northlands Fantasy and co-founder of The Northlands.  I started Northlands Fantasy in 2004 with Kirk Hennessy and Daniel Stein.  In about 2008/2009, Tracy and I started The Northlands, which started off as a Web Community, and evolved to what you see here today.  I’m also the founder of the blog The North Woods, which is just a rambling and jumble of my thoughts.


I’m a writer of short stories, poems, blog posts, articles and the occasional song.  I remember writing my first song about friends when I was in second grade.  Wow, that seems like a long time ago now.  I go through phases in my life when I write a lot of poems and short stories, and times when I write a log of blog posts.  When I sit down to write something, I can usually do so.  So, if you see that I haven’t written something in awhile, please feel free to give me a little nudge and tell me I need to write.  I may complain about it, but I will usually do it and thank you later for it.


I love the martial arts and yoga.  I’ve studied various different styles of martial arts since I was six (6) years old.  I’ve studied Taekwondo, Hapkido, Mauy Thai, kick boxing, and Matsubayashi-ryu Karate.  For yoga, I was a little late coming to the game as I started at the age of thirty-seven (37).  I’ve also played (ice) hockey for thirteen (13) years, American football for three (3) years, baseball for four (4) years, soccer for one (1) year and slow and fast pitch softball off and on while I still lived in the U.S.


I love reading.  I mostly read fantasy fiction books, but I’ll read just about anything.  My favorite author is Terry Brooks.  I like a lot of different authors, and I read a lot of different genres also.  I have a decent collection of yoga books and books about some of my favorite music groups.


I love music.  I mostly like heavy metal and hard rock, with my top three (3) favorite bands being Motley Crue, KISS and Metallica, but I listen to all kinds of music from classical to folk to oldies to country to thrash metal to rap.  Pretty much, I’ll listen to it, and if I can hear it, I’ll like it.


Always Remember:  What other people think of you is none of your business.
