When he isn't twisting plots or dreaming of new ways to torture his characters, he is a stay at home father, helping to raise twin boys and achieve his Education Degree. He is also a blade and exotic weapon enthusiast, and loves a good story no matter where he finds it. Lineage is his first published series.
Calm, introspective, knowledgeable, quiet, kind
Honestly, while I have thought of actors while creating my characters, I'd want an unknown. Someone fresh to the scene.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. The concept of a dystopian society that shuts out the vast problems of the real world by escaping into a virtual world! The story is not only wicked cool and great social commentary, but it came out just as virtual interfaces like the Oculus Rift were being developed. It was spooky.
Making time to write.
I clean house, or leave the house entirely; I put on inspirational music; I’ll start writing from a different characters perspective, or begin writing another story.
Anywhere I can be alone with my thoughts and able to write them down.
Some are. None of the antagonists, thus far. Most of the protagonists.
I do read reviews, I don’t respond, yet. Too busy. When I do read bad reviews, I try to maintain the attitude of a student. I do my best to learn what I can do better as a writer.
I'd be a teacher. I’m currently working on my Ed. degree. I want to teach History and English.
I’d have given myself a copy of Neil Gaiman’s 8 Rules for Writers and told him to adhere to it religiously.
I have a store on Big World Network’s site for my Paperback and ebook. Audio book will be on sale there soon:
