My whole life has been spent in one book or another. Most of that time has been spent reading Piers Anthony, Forgotten Realms, and Dragonlance and various true crime novels. I have lived in PA my entire life and hope to someday visit Transylvania, Ireland, Easter Island, and the Galopagos Islands. Now that Firesouls: The Demon Journal is finished I have started on Firesouls: The Thirteen, the second and final book of the Firesouls. Then I plan on keeping up with my other writing ideas.
I collect Halo figures and Transformers. Yes, I've gotten older but have never grown up. I have been married for fourteen years and have two great kids. I hope you enjoy what my imagination has produced and look forward to entertaining you for a long time to come. Thank you for reading.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
In 2011 when my family was flooded out of our home, then had to live with no electric or hot water for two months. I began writing to read new stories to my kids at bedtime because I couldn't afford new books.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I wanted the world to know that just because you're born into a certain stereotypical way of life, you don't have to follow your peers, but can make your own decisions no matter what the circumstance. The worst situation can be turned around with enough determination.

    I love the characters and all the situations they get into. I wish some of these characters were real so I could know them. Excellent book. Looking forward to reading more.
