My Story

I grew up on a farm with 4 brothers and 4 sisters and reading was cheap. Writing was also cheap. Sometimes I could skip out on chores in place of reading. When I started writing my own nonsensical stories at six years old, and realized that writing could actually be a job, I was intrigued. I soon made the connection that writing could get me out of farm work, and I was hooked. There was no turning back!

 Ok, ok ... reading and writing didn’t actually get me out of work. But in my mind, they took me to places I could have never dreamed of. In truth, I’ve loved stories ever since watching movies like The Land Before Time and seeing new friends embark on grand adventures together right in their backyard. R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps taught me about the world through other people and all their horrifying and beautiful metamorphoses. Every book I picked up was a new and daring escapade into the great beyond, and if books like this could change my life, why couldn’t I do the same for other people?

I write to give others hope and the same kind of second chances that writing still gives me. Second chances about what, you may ask? Well ... I can’t reveal all my secrets here. It’s certainly a big part of why I wrote The Fall Gauntlet series.

If you want to embark on your own reading quest and experience the series yourself, then pick up the gauntlet.

I appreciate your interest in my work.
