About Me

“When people say, Did you always want to be a writer?, I have to say no! I always was a writer.”

– Ursula K. Le Guin

I “published” my first story in a library essay contest at age six, but it took another twenty years before I summoned the courage to write and finish a book. Now I’m finally pursuing my longtime writing ambitions as a proud independent author.

Why indie? Because it gives me creative freedom to explore whatever genres, formats, or ideas strike me. It also affords the flexibility I need to pursue my full-time career outside of writing (although I still harbor that universal authors’ dream of liberating myself with a bestseller someday).

When I’m not glued to a keyboard for work or writing, I love running, sports (playing, watching, and yelling at), playing music, traveling all over Planet Earth, and voracious reading. For more about my books and the writer’s life, check out some of my interviews:

    Glad to hear from you, Richard! I look forward to hearing your thoughts on my book. I’ll be sure to check out “Escape to Canamith” as well; I’m always eager to read other cli-fi visions.
