Night owl and coffee addict from the great city of Houston, TX.
I've been in love with writing all of my life. Although my employment history is in other fields, writing is the job that speaks to my soul.
Growing up my favorite authors were Kurt Vonnegut, Stephen King and Harlen Ellison. These days I seem to read books and authors in the fantasy genre. Like many people, I'm fascinated by vampires, elves and other magical creatures.
I've just started writing again after mainstreaming for many years in the technology industry. Right now I'm getting my wiring chops back and focusing on short articles. Mostly I'm doing book and television reviews, city guides, and some random stuff.
I've lived in the south all of my life, mostly in Houston, TX. I love the city and the people. The hurricanes we get here are not fun, however. I went through hurricane Ike without major damage, but it was perhaps the scariest night of my life when it made landfall.
In school I majored in technical writing and business. In addition, I attended creative wiring classes. Technical writing has caused me to struggle with writing with passive voice. It's something I'm struggling with and hope to overcome.
