I developed the writing bug while telling horror stories to my friends and family when I was in Junior High School. The look on their faces as they read or listened to my stories dug into me and made me want to keep entertaining. I wrote several serials during my Junior High and High school era that were all very well accepted. I went to college for computer programming, received my degree, and attained a respectable position with a small company. However, the writing bug remained and I faced it in 2000 with some success. In the past two years, I've accrued enough material to do a media submission worthy of my, but more importantly my fans, time.
My influences include:
Stephen King (of course) - though my style doesn't really follow his, he is always somewhere in my mind when I write
Clive Barker - original and creative every single time
Rick Hautala - a little gem I discovered in my heavy reading days
