I have been writing in one form or another since I sat down at my mom's electric typewriter in the third grade. I have been doing it professionally since 2006. I am the author of a number of works of fiction and non-fiction. I write thrillers, horror, suspense and young adult novels in fiction. For non-fiction I write true crime and historical books, mostly about the Midwest and my hometown of Chicago. I also write on a freelance basis and my writing there includes press releases, website content, news, journalism, and reviews of movies, television and literature.
