My fiction has been published in a number of literary journals including Reflections, Writers of Readers, My Legacy, Nuvein Online, and EWG Presents. I've also written for several local publications including Style Weekly, Virginia Business, and Richmond Magazine.
I enjoy Seinfeld reruns, the Atlanta Braves, and Beatles songs written by John, Paul, or George. Sorry, Ringo.
In Search of Monsters is my first book.

"I wake up screaming. The room is dark except for a single spindle of light that stretches from the doorway of the bedroom across the hall, slicing through the darkness, taunting me. Shadows of things harmless in the daylight now seem to dance in the gloom and become stretched and contorted, almost evil."
