* 2016 @TheWattys Winner*
* @MargaretAtwood contest winner*

I'm best known on Wattpad for "Glass Eye: Confessions of a Psychic Detective," the Watty award-winning sequel "Black Eye," and "When the Black-Eyed Children Knock." I'm thrilled to say four of my titles have appeared on Top 100 Hot Lists, all at the same time.

My favorite part about Wattpad is talking directly with readers. Some of the best conversations about writing I've ever had have been through Wattpad. This is such a unique place.

Outside of Wattpad, I'm better known as the author of "The Writer's Guide to Weapons," published by Writer's Digest Books and featuring a foreword by David Morrell (creator of Rambo). I keep a blog that features similar content at http://www.crimefictionbook.com.

My professional career involves working for F+W. It's a content and e-commerce company that publishes magazines, books, television shows and digital content. Brands I've worked for include Gun Digest, BLADE, Modern Shooter, Living Ready, Deer & Deer Hunting, Tactical Gear and many others. Prior to that, I worked as a government and crime reporter for a few newspapers.

I'm proud to be a member of the International Thriller Writers organization.

I'm also the creator of The Writer's Glove, a kind of glove that keeps your hands warm while you type on a keyboard. It's not fingerless, can be used with touchscreens and sports a light grip. I came up with this literally in my garage. Now it's used in 24 countries around the world. http://www.thewritersglove.com

Every time I travel, I seem to lose something. This time, it's my Wattpad profile pic. Anyone seen it around? Or is it just me?
