Hi everyone. I am an author of dark speculative fiction, which is just a more concise way of saying I write fantasy, sci-fi, horror, and literary fiction geared toward the darker and grittier side. I am represented by Kimberly Cameron & Associates and the current project I'm working on is THE DREAMWIELDER CHRONICLES, a YA fantasy series from Diversion Books. The first book is DREAMWIELDER, and you can read it right here on Wattpad as part of an exclusive book club. The sequel, SOULDRIFTER, is out now. You can read chapter 1 here on Wattpad at the end of DREAMWIELDER, but to read the rest, you'll have to go the old-school route and purchase a copy. Sorry! 

You'll also find here on Wattpad a prequel short story to DREAMWIELDER, "WULFRAM," and two unrelated novellas of mine, including "THE KNIGHT'S DOG," which has been pretty popular.

As you might guess, I'm an avid SF/F/H reader. Some of my favorite authors include Tolkien, Lovecraft, Le Guin, McCaffrey, Burroughs, Bradbury, Octavia Butler, George R.R. Martin, Paolo Bacigalupi, Tim Powers, James P. Blaylock, Bruce McAllister, Ahimsa Kerp, Craig Comer, Chuck Palahniuk, Raymond Carver, Tobias Wolff, Bill Bryson... jeez, I know I'm forgetting a lot, but that's a good start.

When not writing, I enjoy hiking with my two giant dogs and quaffing good beer!
