As a kid, I moved around a lot, but eventually ended up in Tennessee where I refused to say “Y’all” or develop a southern accent. Eventually, I escaped to Minneapolis, Minnesota, and am still grateful for that. Taking an interest in stories and literature at a young age, writing became an inevitability I didn’t see coming until after I decided to write a short story on my laptop. I haven’t stopped writing since.
I’ve written and published several novels, short stories, and screenplays and intend to write many more. I believe stories help people work through problems whether philosophical, theological, ethical, or relational, and act as a catharsis. They also get people to think and struggle with issues. If anything, they’re entertaining and there’s value in that. I want to write fascinating stories that people haven’t read before with characters that draw readers back for more. I want my stories to stick and will keep trying until something works out.
