Birthdate? Aug 5, 1966
When did you start writing? At age three, I wrote a sequel to "Wind in the Willows." I added explosions and an octopus.
When and what and where did you first get published? After I graduated from college with a broad spectrum biology degree in 1995, I was first published in cuardaw fayraday, a magazine dedicated to Ambrose Bierce, a piece I first wrote for a college lit class. I published it to spite my teacher, who thought I couldn't write.
What themes do you like to write about? I write the characters that are in my head. But I think they like to talk about being different, morality and sometimes about explosions.
What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author? Why? How do these stories and their characters find expression in your work? The great influences on my writing were and are, "Dracula", "Robin Hood", and "The Psalms". At the heart of all great stories is human emotions and sometimes non-human emotions. I love the beauty of language even if I know I'll never reach the level of these.
