Raised with coyote howls and red-tailed hawks, I came to Washington unprepared for the climate, the terrain, and the Starbucks. I have lived in Western Washington for almost twenty years now, from as far south as Bellevue and as far north as Bellingham. I have never met a town as pernicious as Bellingham; it calls to people and refuses to let them go. I settled here in 2004, and married in 2005. My day job is technical support, but I’ve been a writer for as long as I can remember. My first published work, The Corsican, came out on Amazon last September. The best part of writing is the creativity, and I love to tell my son silly bedtime stories.
