I have been writing and drawing since I was old enough to pick up a crayon.

Background Information

I have been writing all my life off and on but I have only been writing professionally for about a year or two. I optioned my first short script “The Proposal” to Darrius Nelson on 3/2003 for credit, I am the associate fiction editor for Gaea’s Cauldron Magazine, and I just finished my first stand-up comedy script( It is a 45 minute stand-up routine) for Ben Benson. We are still negotiating the payment plan on this one.

I hold an AA degree for Saint Petersburg Jr. College and I am about a year short of my BA degree in Literature at the University of South Florida. I have studied Screenwriting, creative writing, psychology, criminal behavior, American Literature, British Literature, Shakespeare, drawing, and many others.

I have written many short stories, short and full length screenplays, and a novella (based on the screenplay Dark Justice). I have taking short stories and turned them into screenplays and I have taken peoples ideas and turned them into screenplays. I have done an adaptation of Piers Anthony’s novel “On A Pale Horse” just to challenge myself. I have also taken the last act of Shakespeare’s tragic play “Titus” and turned it into a comedy without changing any of the dialogue.

I love to challenge myself and I can take on anything in any genre.


Birth Place
Jackson, MI USA

I have just finished my first novella it is around 25,000 words. I have also sold my first short script. In June I wrote my first standup comedy routine for Ben Benson.

I have published two books "Twisted American Fairy Tales" in 2005 and "Dread" in 2008 both are available at

Additional Information

I have just published my first book "Twisted American Fairy Tales" available at About this book: Every fairy tale must have a happy ending right? That depends on how you define happy. In this collection of fairy tales the happy endings are not always so happy. Welcome to my Fairy land. Strap in for the ride of your life as you look at the American landscape in a whole new way and learn how the other side lives. A man goes home for the last time. A driver discovers a mother’s secret pain. A detective learns the price of vengeance. A hunter becomes the hunted. Plus many more. Enjoy my twisted fairy tales and just maybe you’ll find your own happy ending. My second book entitled "Dread" also avialable at About this book: In a world where the undead rule the streets, death follows your every move, and time is all you have. The fate of humanity rest in the hands of the scattered survivors. May God have mercy on us all!
