CV (Abridged):

I was born in Atlanta, Georgia in the early seventies. A lot of boring years passed and I eventually graduated high school and enlisted in the U.S. Army where I repaired helicopter engines. I was honorably discharged three years later and held menial jobs in warehouses, construction, and fast-food before becoming a Firefighter/EMT which I enjoyed for several years. I taught myself computer programming and began a career working in climate-controlled offices with a better salary. I've manipulated bits and bytes for twenty years, but find that boring compared to writing novels. My first short story was published in Static Movement and I have appeared in Shroud Magazine. I continue to read and write daily. I live in Rome, GA with my wonderful family and four mischievous cats. I may not ever become rich from writing, but I hope my readers will enjoy what I create. That's a reward in itself. Thanks for stopping by.
