I'm from Pasadena, Maryland (Lake Shore). Don't ask me why, but for some reason many people call it 'The Dena'. Personally, that drives me a little nuts. I’ve lived in the area all my life, and absolutely love my little peninsula; I grew up fishing and boating on the Chesapeake Bay. I guess that's why I like to write stories about the area. I primarily write young adult fiction that revolves around sci-fi, urban-fantasy and the supernatural.
