About the Author

Writing has always been in my blood. My love of writing started in my early teens when I cut my teeth on Sci-Fi and the passion has never left me. I live in Southern California with my beautiful and fetching wife, along with two exceedingly talkative cats.

At an early age, I was introduced to Robert Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land and have been an avid reader ever since. As a teen, I picked up a copy of Lord of the Rings and expanded my love of reading to include Medieval Fantasy. By 18 years of age, I knew I wanted to be an author. It remained a dream until 2012 when I turned my energy full-time to writing.

Outside of writing I’ve obtained a Master of Science in Information Systems while working in the private & public sectors, academia, and the field of ministry. This diverse work life has provided a wealth of experience that has helped me to understand my characters and the way in which they deal with their trials and tribulations – overcoming obstacles that transform their lives. The process of how some characters fail, and others rise above their own expectations, mimics my personal life. The passion and fire of a life led without regret is what I hope to bring to my stories. As the Dragon-Called tells us:

Stay True to Your Fire Within!

I believe stories are about the characters and the movement of them through some adventure or experience. That is why I focus on character development and write the action as I imagine it – a big 4K, 3D movie. This is why I’ve been known to say, “I write books for those who believe there is something more!”
