After graduating college, I ran away to Poland for a few months (as you can see from my story settings haha) it influenced me a lot. Now I'm back in Boston, working, writing and having a good time. 

Favorite book: Franny and Zooey by JD Salinger

"If you can do a half-assed job of anything, you're a one-eyed man in a kingdom of the blind." - Kurt Vonnegut

"I hate writing, I love having written." - Dorothy Parker


Fire Flower (working title) is set up to be the longest piece I've written. It has its base in Slavic (specifically Polish) folklore and mythology.  I'm just getting it off the ground, but I have a good idea of some cool places to go with it. Stick with me!

I also have a fictionpress account under the same username. So if any of my stuff appears there, no need to be alarmed. It's just me, not a dirty nasty plagiarizer.
