Birthday? September 25

When did you start writing? Probably as soon as I could form sentences...

When and what and where did you first get published? My first publication was "Needs More Salt" -- a flash fiction piece that's still available to read over at Daily Science Fiction. It premiered in 2014.

Why do you write? I can't not. I am a naturally bored person with an over-active imagination.

Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy? Realism bores me. I write it sometimes, but my imagination is more concerned with "what if?"

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story? I change this up a lot, but right now it's probably Michael Ende's "Neverending Story." There's a lot going on there thematically that rewards multiple reads.

What are you trying to say with your fiction? Heavy questions on here, I tell you what... Sometimes I have a theme in mind, but most of the time I write what sparks my imagination and let it develop from there. My goal with fiction is to entertain, and to get my readers to examine an idea in a way that they never considered before.

Do you Blog?

If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say?
