I've been hooked on stories since my grandma first starting tucking me in with tales of her life on the South Dakota prairie swimming in my head. I grew up in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia and was blessed to have a mother who didn't complain when I came home from the woods covered in mud and burs, and a father who told me the stories that sent me out there in the first place.
I have a Masters in Creative Writing from Oxford University, and am the author of The Farshore Chronicles, as well as Fire in the Dawn, Book 1 of the Twin Skies Trilogy.
I'm a Martial Arts aficionado, a gaming nerd, a classics geek, and a list of other classifications both pejorative and praiseworthy. I live in Colorado with my amazing wife Mindy and a pixie in disguise who allows me to claim her as my daughter at parties.
