Howdy! The books and stories I've now published are a far-cry from the torn and worn notepad in which I jotted a brief story regarding my G.I. Joes some twenty-odd years ago (I like to think that my writing has gotten much better since first grade too). I would like to sincerely thank you for stopping by and (hopefully) reading some of my work. It has been a dream of mine for quite some time to share my stories with the world.

It took a great deal of patience and wherewithal of mind to overcome my habit of daydreaming these distant worlds and fantastic scenarios and actually sit down to write about them. From long nights in front of a glowing computer, to jotting outlines during lunch at work, to getting called out by professors for not paying attention in class when an idea struck, I've been honing my craft daily and working toward delivering stories that will excite, inspire, initiate reflection upon mankind's condition, and cause the reader to appreciate the real world around them as well as the fictional worlds that I have created.

I hope dearly that you enjoy my work. Be confident that, even now, I am striving and focusing toward delivering something better than I have before!
