Reader & Writer


I'm currently a stay-at-home dad, formerly working in insurance sales. I've been writing for as long as I can remember and am using the time away from a day job to pursue the publication of my work.

Favorite Books

I'm a huge Stephen King fan, have read every one of his books (as well as his son, Joe Hill). But there's a huge place in my heart for YA fiction. Writers like Suzanne Collins, Rick Yancey, Victoria Aveyard, James Dashner, and Claudia Gray, to name a few.
