This is me, dreaming outside the Musée de l'Orangerie, which definitely counts as writing.

"If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it."

—Toni Morrison

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my bizarre little corner of the internet.

Who the heck am I, you might be wondering? Well, I'm an author and playwright with a background in acting, journalism, software development and a ton of ancillary hobbies and interests which constitute what we like to call a personality.
 

Having turned my focus to long-form prose in the past few year, my focus is on literary speculative fiction with an emotional pulse. My influences include William Faulkner, Margaret Atwood, Arthur C. Clark and David Mitchell.  

I'm currently querying a novel called THE MONARCHS OF PENROSE FOREST, which I composed and edited under the mentorship of author Abby Geni, professor of fiction at the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop.

In March 2022, chapter one of my first manuscript, BEYOND THE OVERCAST SKY, placed 3rd in the Gutsy Great Novelist Chapter One Contest.

 

In 2018, my stage play, STARBRIGHT, debuted in a festival Off-Broadway and was named the winner of the North Carolina New Play Project and the Centre Stage New Play Festival in Greenville, SC.
