Description:

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. Now that I've manipulated bits and bytes for nearly seventeen years, I'm working on building up my own line of 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.
