I'm a writer, guitarist, history buff, jazz lover.  I love to read almost any genre (sorry, no romance novels).  I attended Oregon Health Sciences University studying Radiation Oncology.  I think I've always had the writing bug.  I wrote short stories in the 1980s, wrote screenplays from 2000 to 2012 where I won a Best Script Award from Amazon Studios in 2011 and won the 2012 Holiday Screenwriting Contest as well as a dozen options and had one script go into production in Australia.

In 2013, I decided I'd be happier writing novels. I published an adult thriller/horror on Amazon and Smashwords called 'The Darkest Corner'. My current project 'Eliza Twitchel & The Haunted Forest' is the first book in a MG fantasy series. I also would like to adapt a Sci-fi script I wrote into a YA Dystopian novel.
