Extended Bio:
As a writer, I have written many different genres and lengths of stories over the course of my life. In high school, I submitted stories for our Nationally-acclaimed literary magazine Echoes, and was awarded and recognized upon graduation from the State of Maryland for my literary efforts. In college, I continued my passion for short stories and novels.

There are many ideas and stories to bring out of my mind and put to paper, however, my first step into the world of a full-length novel was Moonlit Nights, a project I had been most passionate about finishing and getting out to the public.

Moonlit Nights is a suspenseful and thrilling fiction, and its main antagonist, the werewolf, is a creature that has lived for centuries throughout all forms of media, including a rise in popularity over the last few years in books and film. This novel breathes life into the varying myths and legends of these ancient tales while bringing new ideas and surprises into a genre-crossing thriller.

I am currently in the process of finishing up my second novel, Tragedy, as I continue marketing my first book to the masses. Tragedy will be my next, full-length manuscript, taking place in the Baltimore Washington Area off of Washington D.C.

If you have any questions or comments for me about my writing, Moonlit Nights or any other upcoming project that I am working on, please feel free to contact me. I love hearing from my readers.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
It is a sudden rash of bizarre killings that takes the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area by storm. It infuses a bit of the supernatural into the generic murder mystery tale and crafts a believable world where you never know if evil is solely a human characteristic.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Hunter S. Thompson's 'The Rum Diary', Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child's 'Relic' and Michael Crichton's 'Jurassic Park" are just some of the books I read growing up that inspired me to want to write. Those along with the varied stories from H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allen Poe, Stephen King, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and many more modern and classical literature writers are who I find enjoyment in reading.
