About

img_0195

Born in Ohio, now residing in North Carolina, I spend my time writing fiction, watching and cheering lacrosse, and most importantly trying to be a guide to my son.

I like to write a compelling story.  My current writings are Thrillers, with some Christian themed characters, Fantasy with Dragons (who does not love writing dragons?), plus a bit of horror and comedy mixed in. I prefer the settings that inspired various aspects of the story.  Fatal Introductions is set in Northeast Ohio (Mostly Barberton and Akron areas); For Eighteen Fools, (a young adult Fantasy still in revision) I used the countryside in England as inspiration for the town of Arborwick.

Most these stories have been brewing in my mind since I was a teenager.  Many, sadly, possibly too many years later, they have been tempered and developed.  The characters have not aged but I hope they have developed the depth where they are relatable, except maybe the demons…

All good stories teach a lesson without becoming too preachy; Fatal Introductions, as well as the entire series, wants to portray that we all have free will, and that we can choose whether or not to be the hero or villain.  There are many forces at play, and we can control our personal choices, but do we have some control of the consequences?

Always looking for relevant input.  If you have any thoughts on my projects don’t be afraid to share them.
