*Wattpad Star*
* 2016 Wattys Winner*

I'm best known here 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 how easy it is to talk directly with readers. Some of the best conversations about writing I've ever had have been through Wattpad.

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). My other fiction works stick to the crime and thriller genres. I like to give readers something that's entertaining and moves quickly, but at the same time offers plenty to chew on.

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.
