Starting in August of 2017, I set a goal of writing 52 stories in 52 weeks (essentially one story a week).

I'm a cross-genre fanatic, especially with my writing. I dig westerns, fantasy, sci-fi, supernatural, horror, and historical fiction.

Big fan of Homer's epic poems and Emerson's essays.

When it comes to non-fiction, I love anything involving history, science, and philosophy. Biographies of amazing people kick ass, too.

For the most part, if it's written, I'll read it!

If you find me in a debilitated state on the side of the road, feed me donuts and I'll be OK.
