BIOGRAPHY

I was born in Seattle, but raised in North Carolina since I was eight. I started work on the novel when I was nineteen while living in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. The novel developed into a series as I continued to develop the plotlines and characters. When not writing, I work as a welder in the Raleigh, NC area. I'm a welder and a writer, because I love working with my hands and creating a story. Writing is a lost art that I enjoy. The ideas I come up with are found when I found myself enjoying the beauty of this world like long walks on the beach or watching the sun set. I'm very new to being a published author. I care deeply about plot and characters which I believe are what make a story great.

      • Yes I have experienced "Writer's Block." I believe almost every writer eventually comes across a time and place where they get stuck. What I do is spend a little time away to let my brain cool down, then I sort out various different ideas of the possibilities of what could happen in that story. I choose which one is best and makes the most sense or would be a good plot twist. I recommend writing an outline, so that you know what you want to happen then as you write the story you have time to think of how you want to cross that bridge when you come to it.

      • My advice to aspiring writers would be to first figure out what kind of story you want to
        write and then write it down so you don’t forget or lose the details, especially ideas for
        that special story, because we do forget – life is busy and we move on to jobs and careers
        and the creative pieces in us are not fostered, encouraged or given time to be explored.
        Another important element is how you decide to tell the story. You can have the greatest
        story in the history of literature history but it won’t resonate if it’s not told right. There
        are books out there that have great plot but couldn’t get readership because of how the
        story was written. I tend to believe that if it’s too hard to make heads or tails out of a
        story, too hard to follow and understand, it won’t draw in or hold readers attention or
        interest. So, my advice is keep it crisp – not too easy, but not overly complex.

      • I started writing when I was nineteen back in 2012. At that time I wasn’t spending as much time with video games. I had several ideas in my head and I felt that if I didn’t get them on paper I’d simply lose or forget them – I suspect I felt the need to tell some of those stories. One day I went to Barnes and Noble and I started looking at books that caught my interest. I would say Neal Shusterman motivated me to write.
