I’ve been writing ever since I started my first novel the summer before eighth grade—a hand-written epic fantasy catastrophe that has lurked in my mind and an increasingly ratty college-ruled notebook ever since.

I’m a writer, USMC veteran and librarian. When not writing (which is often), I read as much fantasy and science-fiction as possible and try to get out of folding laundry.
