Before the Sun, poetry, Issue 24, September 1, 2013

Birthdate? 11/26/1987 (Thanksgiving Day)
When did you start writing? About three years ago.
When and what and where did you first get published? Actually, I was lucky enough to have the first short story I ever wrote win an honorable mention in a contest journal at Mount San Antonio College (Mt. SAC)
What themes do you like to write about? Initially, I was taken by horror, Stephen King to be specific. However, in my current works I am leaning more towards Memoir... or loosely autobiographical fiction, such as William S. Burroughs and Charles Bukowski.
