Author's Bio

I am an Indie Writer. My passions for reading and creative writing inspired me to devour everything from contemporary novels to classical literature. As a high school student, I wrote poetry for my enjoyment. That joy blossomed into a zeal for creative writing that would not be contained. Composing poetry rippled into short fiction writing that led to the literary path of creating short stories, novels, and screenplays.

I have studied English Literature and Creative Writing at Point Park University, Sonoma State University, and Portland State University to improve my craft. The beauty of this mythical quest for perfection has cemented into my psyche the good old-fashioned ABC principle of writing (Applying Butt to Chair). A visit from the Muse is also essential. Nothing motivates me more than to put pen to paper than passion. I would not be a writer without it. My writings have appeared in Door Is A Jar, The Hungry Chimera, THEMA, African Voices Magazine, Potluck Mag, Taj Mahal Review, Inwood Indiana (Ditch ‘em), Crack The Spine, Universal Oneness, The Aurorean, The Raintown Review, The Storyteller, Spindrift 2000 and a few others.
