Creativity is my passion.
Since 2014, I've been taking on the writing world, working to achieve my goal of novelist & fiction author. I've written tons of non-fiction in my journals & online, but I'm desperate to write fiction.
I've participated in a few NaNoWriMo competitions, winning each time, and chronicled my experiences for others to learn from here. I even uploaded one of the winning novels for NaNoWriMo 2015. (Both can be read on my Wattpad page in the "Links" section above.)
In August of 2016, my short story "Proof" was published in an anthology entitled "Tales from the Holler." I've also more recently published my first book in a new non-fiction series entitled "SMART FOCUS Book 1: How to Stay S.M.A.R.T. and Achieve Your Most Important Goals One Step at a Time." Validation achieved!
I'm a voracious reader, averaging around 40-50 books a year (including unabridged audio). I read Self-Help, Inspiration & Motivation, Business, Mystery, Fantasy, Horror, & Young Adult. It all boils down to good stories.
Favorite authors: Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, Brian Jacques, Susanna Clarke
Favorite musicians (guitarists): Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert, Tony Rice, Bryan Sutton, Tommy Emmanuel...too many to name, really.
