Hello, welcome, and thanks for stopping by, friends!
My love for writing began in my parent’s Minnesota basement during regular Dungeons and Dragons games with friends. With the help of a lot of pizza and Mountain Dew, I found the game to be an amazing outlet that helped me imagine worlds I never would have dreamed of otherwise.
Despite that, writing never came easily; when my father handed me a notebook ahead of a high school trip and told me to write about it, I managed just half of a page.
But the idea stuck with me, and a great many years and blog posts later I’m now writing short stories and books.
I called 20 years of television and online journalism quits after making a pregnant giraffe become YouTube’s second-most watched live video. I now work part-time at the local library, where, among my other duties, I coordinate young adult book, art, writing, and RPG groups.
I currently live in western New York. I am a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and the Buffalo-Niagara Children’s Writers and Illustrators. In addition to writing and reading, I spend my free time hiking and traveling with my wife, playing with our fur babies – Anna and Gauge (pictured above) – am an avid Minnesota hockey fan, and am discovering all of the joys of owning a fixer upper.
