My writing often resembles a train destined to run itself right off of the tracks of tradition. But what remains clear is the force of a story so strong and unyielding that readers are compelled to stay with such a fantastic nightmare until the very end.

Background Information

Did you ever know someone whom you disregarded for most of your life until finally, one day, when the world has shown itself to be a most congestive and frustrating place, that person suddenly appears in front of you and becomes the most important part of your life? That was what writing did for me. And it still does! I am obsessed with storytelling; I love to share the deepest parts of me that I would otherwise keep guarded under lock and key.

Fiction is my forte. Dark. Satirical. Sometimes awkward. Maybe a bit morbid. I often end up writing about moments that most people would like to forget. But, I'm versatile. I'm working on a new horror series, which is my first stab at the genre (I suppose the pun is intended). I've written reviews, essays, and poetry. I'm also a cartoonist. You can view all of my work on my website.

What motivates me? The fact that I have nothing else to lose. It's either this or dirty dealings. And writing is something that you just can't lose if you're passionate enough.

These are just some of my influences:

-Francesca Lia Block

-Janet Fitch

-Virginia Woolf

-Sylvia Plath

-Thomas Roche

-Anais Ain

-Norma Klein

-T.C. Boyle

-Camille Paglia

-Joan Didion

-Tom Robbins
