I live in Texas with my wife, four dogs, a cat, and eight box turtles.
I am an American author and I work in the IT field. I've worked for and with many of the largest internet companies. I find the work exciting, and it fuels my love for science fiction.
My true passion is writing. I've been published in literary journals, but I'm currently trying my hand in the exploding e-publishing world. My focus is on short stories and novellas, but that may change at any time. I love novels and I'm not sure that I can stay away from them for long.
In my spare time, I'm a moderator of the reddit community, /r/writing. It's a great place where writers of all levels of skill come to learn and grow.
My wife and I are advocates of animal rescue and adoption. We volunteer with the organization Homeward Bound Rescue as weekend adoption councilors.
I have Tourette Syndrome. It has led to some interesting moments in my life. As irritating as the condition can be, it's a part of me, and I'm learning to control it.
My long-term goal is to learn the ins and outs of the evolving publishing world and to open up a small press.
