Garie considers that storytelling is analogous to communication. He writes stories with strong, authentic characters that are defined by strong writing and themes and thereby reinforce the power of communication.
Having written and published his first novel, What's in a Name, Garie facilitates a process-method as an editing solution to enable writers and editors to meet traditional publishing standards.
Garie makes the elements and tools of his own success available through the educational and grammatical linguistic material that he produces in academic modules and facilitates through McIntoshLinguistics, his editing-service business.
Garie strives to use grammar, diction and the gamut of literary devices to make his writing compelling. These inexorable tools of literary fiction underpin the subjects and themes he feels are important.
Garie is drawn to telling stories that are social allegories. He uses this theme to explore the human condition, delve into the psyche and explore why we are the way we are and do the things we do. Letting go is also a prominent theme.
Garie writes postmodernist fiction, using its fractured or nonlinear prose to deeply explore his characters. His narratives take his readers along the path of a character-story structure or an idea-story structure.
