Growing up in West Virginia, I always looked forward to library trips with my mother and the evenings when my father would read me books like The Time Machine and War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells. I wrote my first fantasy story at age ten. Later, I drafted a 30,000-word vampire novella, and they let me graduate from school a year early.
At the University of Tampa, I took the Writing Science Fiction course as often as they allowed. From there, I managed to publish my first novel before turning thirty: The Last of the Ageless. Now I'm having fun writing an epic fantasy series called The Rifts of Renjian. These books are full of magical mayhem, and I can't wait for you to read them!
