Author, devil’s advocate, and lover of all things rock and roll

I’ve been writing since I was six, when I took over my mother’s typewriter and rewrote some of my favorite books for grins. As I grew older, I would start projects, write two chapters, and lose interest. It was only after my mother’s battle with ALS ended that I focused and finished my first book, Like Dark Minds.

Since then, I’ve found a new love for writing. Sometimes it’s for fun, sometimes to escape, and sometimes to remember what’s important.

I love music, the mountains, and anything that flies. Flying takes me away from the world, to the space between the ground and the universe. With both feet in the dirt and both hands in the stars… Stand above.
