Born and raised in California, Drew began moving around when he was 14. From California to the East Coast and from Texas to Idaho, Drew has seen this country and met its people. He knew that he had to begin writing when the stories in his head became so numerous that they had to escape on paper! Though he runs a video production company, Star Painter Productions, his passion has always been writing. He's been published in numerous magazines such as Horseman and Appaloosa News, ran a sci-fi magazine called Galactic Alliance and recently published his first novel in a trilogy, The Eyes of Tokorel: The Color of Emotion. He has also written a book on Bell's Palsy, and currently is writing two more books, fiction novels, that will come out late 2013 and early 2014. Drew currently lives and works in Northern Colorado where he finds time each day to pursue his dreams of writing!

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me is to get to meet each new character. They become my friends and get into situations that I wish I would have the nerve to encounter. Each time I write a book, it's as if I'm reading it for the first time.
