In short

  • Born in Montana and grew up in South Dakota, I became interested in writing when I discovered the works of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien while I was in high school.  Along with writing, I was heavily involved with music and theater.  In my senior year me and a good friend of mine directed a one act play to compete within our school.  The high school director complimented us on our hard work, but we didn't really see it as hard work at all.  I saw it as me and Aaron goofing off while we encouraged the actors on stage to do likewise.

    In college I became less involved in theater because it was more time consuming, but I stayed involved in choir and even more time for writing.  In my junior year, me and my friend, Joe, started a very small writing club that we called "Weird," where every Tuesday night we go down to the local micro brewery, have a beer and critique each others work.  We were very tough on each other and that ultimately made us into much better writers.

  • I'm almost certain that I am human, and to the best of my knowledge, I've always been on earth.

My Favorites: Reading and Writing

  • in a nice recliner, or in bed, or in the arms of my imaginary girlfriend who, unbeknownst to me, is actually a ninja hired by the Tokagawa Shogunite to assassinate me in my sleep.  Luckily, before bed each night I use the secret cheat code (Up Up Down Down Left Right A B Start) that makes me immortal while I sleep.  I use the code not because I fear assassination, but because I like to have an ace up my sleeve if I run into conflicts within my dreams.  It's the best method of overcoming nightmares, I highly recommend it.
