My parents claim they found me in a pineapple patch in Hawai'i and brought me home. I grew up in South Texas reading Tolkien, Asimov, and Robert E. Howard . I've always loved telling stories, and in high school, I wrote pulp style action adventures for my friends. Since then, I've been filling notebooks and hard drives with stories and ideas.
After I graduated from Calallen High School, I joined the Air Force to see the world. The Air Force had other ideas, and I ended up in Kansas, and fled at the first opportunity for greener anything. My travels eventually brought me to Missouri, where I live today.
Over the years, I've studied or learned about archery, swordfighting, Wicca, a host of other religions, massage therapy, reiki and a list of other skills that have no particular use outside of an historical recreation event. Three of the best years of my life were spent working in a New Age/pagan bookstore.
Like a lot of writers, I have music that I listen to when I write. I use Pandora.com and Playlist.com to keep me focused when there are distractions in the house around me or when I need to get into a particular frame of mind. I'm always looking for new music that creates a similar mood as the songs on this list. I've put a suggestion form at the bottom of the page if you have music you would like to recommend.
