Though I grew up near Philadelphia, I never really grew up. I preferred to write instead, and despite the fact that I always had, I was the last one to realize I was a writer. As a result, I refused to call myself one until I had something published, and in 2013, that moment came.
'Life After: The Arising' was my first novel, a coming-of-age odyssey embodying my devotion to realism, strong characterization, and pulpy zombie films. Perhaps it's an affectation of my juvenile outlook, but I've always felt that writing - and reading - should be both fun and substantive, and I hope to bring that approach to everything I produce.
I continue to live near Philadelphia, and I never intend to grow up.
