Thanks for visiting my author’s page. Hopefully, that means you have either read The Glass Cannon or are thinking about it.

Please look me up on Twitter or find me on my website.

When I’m not writing, I’m usually playing or designing video games, or catching the latest movie. Cracking unfunny jokes and what not. Chasing my kitten around. You know, the tame stuff. Let’s see, some more interesting tidbits: I’ve almost succumbed to hypothermia on Mt. Rainier. I wasn't even near the top or anything, just a crazy storm blew in while I was hiking it. Got lost, saw a full-grown mountain goat, then took shelter from the cold in a bathroom they had built into the mountain. It was quite fun actually, can't wait to do it again. I once “helped” a friend get a tongue piercing in the back streets of Florence. He couldn't get it done in the States, as his parents would never allow it. (He was a minor at the time.) We got lost, but we got it done. Hmm, most of my fun stories start with me getting lost, it seems. You always find the more interesting stories when you get lost. My dad taught me that. So, go get lost, find some stories, then share them with me. (I hold no responsibility for anything that happens to you or your person if you do get lost. Don’t be an idiot.)

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I’m going to have to guess at this, but I believe I wrote my first poem sometime around ele‚Äčmentary school. I think it was some school project where we had to write a poem for our moms. High school is where I really started writing for myself and created a bunch of poems which will thankfully never see the light of day.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Playing video games, watching TV and movies, reading, surfing the web, eating, inhaling, exhaling, turning carbon into energy, pondering, performing witchcraft, turning myself into a snake like that one scene in Conan 2, or was that the first one...

Oh, sure, superpowers seem sexy at first. You can do things no other human can do, and everything just falls into place. Yet, what happens when a man who can vaporize reality with a thought starts facing the bitter truths about the world we live in? Soon, the only things keeping him going are his black and white set of rules and his work. Of course, rules only work when everyone follows them...
