About Me

I began telling stories as soon as I learned how to talk.  Growing up my parents read me the stories of Theseus and Beowulf.  I spent my childhood creating my own elaborate myths.  In tenth grade I wrote my first novel, Chaos, which I described as The Breakfast Club meets The Book of Revelations.
        
        While attending Washington College I published several articles in the school’s paper, The Collegian, and short stories in its magazine The Medium.  My short play “The Date” won first place in Washington College’s Playwrights’ Festival.  I was also a member of the club Writers’ Theater.  My devotion for this group went so far I wore a tutu before a packed house for my monologue “Ballet Fight Club.”
        
        After Graduation I spent a year teaching ninth grade English.  By day I risked life and limb reading Shakespeare to fourteen-year-olds.  By night I took refuge in writing a fantasy novel that would become Edge Country.
