I am a 30 year old author from Conroe, TX.
There is not an easy way to define my work. I'm a very eclectic writer as far as genre is concerned, and I like to try new things in the genres I write rather than sticking solely to previously forged paths.
'The Pit' is rather unique in that it doesn't fit in any specific genre, instead combining elements of psychological dark fantasy with drama. Each book focuses on a different character going through a unique struggle in life characterized by two stories running alongside each other: the first is a fantasy story allegorizing the particular struggle that particular character is going through using the theme of a pit where the characteristics and quality of the pit are unique to each character; the other is set in the 'real world' interpreting the symbolism of the fantasy story in a real world context.
'The Death of Gemini' is a concept poetry book which conveys a story through poems about a socially outcast and lonely teen who becomes obsessed with a celebrity who looks exactly like and has the same name as a character he's been secretly writing since he was 14; the coincidence messes with his head, and he becomes pathologically obsessed with her as the one who might possibly be destined to 'save' him. A series of tragedies and a major betrayal turns his world upside down as he's forced to ask hard questions of what life is all about and what is really worth living for. A novelization called 'Gemini, Dearest...' is coming out later this year.
If I could summarize the main theme of all my works it is this: Life takes us through many struggles and paths, hardships and victories, griefs and elations. Yet no matter how dark things get, the light always shines in the darkness, and the darkness cannot overcome it.
