I've been writing a while, but am just getting started here at Wattpad.

Blackquest 40 and Anarchy of the Mice are works in progress: definitely not first drafts, but not fully baked-and-frosted either. I've also written an upmarket thriller, The Winner Maker, which I hope to publish traditionally. If you'd like to beta- or advance-read Winner, just message me and I'll send you the manuscript.

A little of my writing backstory. I grew up outside Kansas City and went to Yale, where I told friends I wanted to write a novel. Yale offered a Fiction Writing Workshop course. I didn't take it. "I don't want somebody else teaching me how to write," I explained, just like the 20-year-old dope I was.

Since then I've had day jobs as a consultant, business analyst, teacher, and programmer, lived on both coasts and ended up in the middle (Michigan), shredded one ankle playing too much basketball, and shepherded two young daughters into elementary school.

The whole time, I have been writing. It's taken me a while to figure out genre -- I started out writing stuff that was more literary, or possibly just boring -- but I think I've found my lane now with thrillers. My stories aspire to read quick, and typically involve unique-yet-recognizable protagonists in tough spots.

As I said, I'm new to Wattpad, and would love to hear from you. Please don't hesitate to comment my chapters or message me with suggestions, read requests, or just to say hi.
