It does not do to dwell on dreams
and forget to live.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Hear It From Me
I am a prose-genre writer. This means I write fiction that is mostly science fiction and fantasy, although I have, on several occasions, branched out. I have both a spiritual-romance book and a family-drama book in the works, but my main interest is in combining science fiction and fantasy, like what you may have seen in a few of the Final Fantasy games (think VII, VIII, and XV specifically) and the Star Ocean series.
If you're interested in learning more about what I write, then take a look at my Stories page. It's constantly under revision, so be sure to check back often!
As for me personally, I'm a solid 'near-thirty,' the direction of the 'near' dependent upon when you're reading this, and I'm the second of eight children. I have one older brother, five younger brothers, and a younger sister, half of whom are married to brunettes with glasses (we clearly have a type). Currently, I live in the Nebraska area working at a University as an adjunct English professor while going to school full-time for a masters in Mass Communications, though I hope to be able to do some traveling in the near future. Ultimately, I plan to attend a Creative Writing Ph.D. program before finding work as a full-time undergraduate professor.
I'm not sure what else there is to know about me, but if you think of any questions you'd like answered, please feel free to leave a comment or send me an email. Thanks for stopping by!
Live Your Dream
As an author, it is easy to dream and forget to live, but here, I hope to bridge the gap and do both. Unfortunately, doing both in this world requires a certain amount of social effort, a skill in which I am sorely lacking, but I hope you will look beyond my deficiencies to the good intentions that lay beneath.
I am a writer, and my dream is to help other writers learn how to bridge the gap between dreams and reality. Whether your goal is to get published, become the next J.K. Rowling, or just improve your prose, letting me help you bridge the gap in your life will further bridge the gap in mine.
So, let's help each other and arrive where we want to be together.
