I started writing back when I was only eight years old, making up short,
one page stories that involved myself and a girl that held my affections
at the time. Throughout the rest of grade school I continued on with the
really short stories, and it wasn't until the onset of high school, did I
start to get solid ideas for larger works, finding inspiration almost
Throughout the 1990's, my love of science fiction shows and movies helped
me create my own tales in new stories, whether it be fan fiction, or orignial
works. It was at this time that I also laid the groundwork for some of my
series that I write about today, some starting off life as sketches from an
art class. Towards the end of high school, I started a novel as well.
Unfortunately, after fifty pages of writing, I lost the idea. I decided
afterwords to stick to short stories and such, as it became my strength in
writing more and more over the years.
Being someone that was born in our country's biggest city, and grew up in
a smaller community further north (where I once again reside), it gave me an
interesting perspective on a lot of things. I can be comfortable in either the
chaos of a metropolis, or the calm of a remote forest. My writing has really
taken off in the last ten years, with new ideas coming along constantly. I
love to tell a good story, and believe in when C.S. Lewis famously said,
"You can make anything by writing."
Aside from writing, I'm what you call a paint expert by day, working long
hours down in the city. I have a pet cat named Mulder (X-Files reference!)
who I am very fond of. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, spending time on
the beach in the warm months, and working on my model railroad. I'd like to
think I'm just a simple man, but we all know that writers and authors are
some of the most complicated people out there, so I'll just stop now....
