I began writing my first fantasy novel in college, but in the way of these things, it was set aside as life intervened. As time went on, I realized my love of writing and telling stories wasn’t going to just slink quietly into the night. The drive to write came back full force in the early 2000s, at which point I dedicated myself to the craft, writing several novels and learning under the guidance of writers like Nancy Kress, Joe Haldeman, Tim Powers, Holly Black, Michael Swanwick, Kij Johnson, and many more.
Since then, I’ve more than ten novels and several dozen short stories. I was born in Wisconsin and, beyond a five-year stint in Southern California, have been living here my whole life.
