In the heart of the midwest, we're surrounded by cornfields, soybean crops, and wheat galore. The prairie is tranquil. Dreamlike. And I love it here.
But I've always had a great desire to travel the world. The prairie is home, and much of the world can seem so alien in comparison. Being far from the ocean, I was awestruck the first time I took a plane overseas, and when I walked along the shores of the Emerald Isles. It was so beautiful, and refreshing. I wanted to see more. I wanted to see as much of the world as I could. I still do.
This desire to travel has often been coupled with two of my other greatest desires. To write, and to be part of something greater than myself. I love to write because even when I can't travel, a world can be created with just a pen and some paper.
The concept of the Detective Games series, for example, was something that really excited me, because of how diverse it could be. I envisioned detectives all across the globe, exotic new lands, and thrilling cases to be solved.
My desire to be part of something greater than myself... that's what truly drives me.
