I'm have an intense love of 20th century history and keep my eyes to the stars. The Riddle universe has been under construction since 2001, and Riddle was released on June 1, 2014.
I have a history degree, and part of my work for the completion of my degree required a senior paper with a unique topic. I chose the first post-Reconstruction graded school in my home town. I quickly found out that my city had encountered friction concerning funding for the still-segragated schools, leading to the closure of both schools for at least a year.
And so an in-story history for Riddle's current version was born.
I still live in that same town in North Carolina, and I have one very smart dog.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Creating. As a Christian, I believe that creating is what humans were meant to do. I write stories and make worlds. It's a wonderful experience.
What are you working on next?
The sequel to Riddle. It is as yet untitled, but I'm getting comfy with Matt, Anya, and their world again, and I am so looking forward to opening up the world of Riddle a little more.
