I was born and raised in Southwest Virginia. I graduated from college with a marketing degree, and after several sales jobs, found that really wasn’t the life for me. I had taken a few creative writing classes in college, so I fell back on that when the sales didn’t work out. Eventually, I showed my work to several people, and they were very encouraging, so now I firmly define myself as a writer.
My literary heroes are all over the place. I count among my influences everyone from Stephen King to Jimmy Buffett. Since the greatest percentage of my writing deals with the paranormal, I lean a little more toward Stephen King.
I write novels, short stories, and screenplays.
