who am i?
i’m a digital storyteller and entrepreneur. i write urban fantasy books for people that like to watch tv. i am a full time pop philosopher that thinks literature has taught a lot to television but could stand to learn a bit too.
i was born a storyteller, tho my mom called it lying as a kid. i didn’t study literature or writing in college, i’m a self-taught-storyteller-in-the-making. an only child in rural wisconsin, my friends were mostly books and video games. i love anything with a good storyline: legend of zelda, final fantasy series, heck, even banjo-kazooie. i read goosebumps and animorphs religiously and of course fell hard for harry potter. my current tv addictions are: himym, true blood, misfits, and greek.
my writing heroes include joss whedon, carter bays and craig thomas, shakespeare, oscar wilde, jk rowling. i’ll add more as i read/watch more.
(i love parentheticals and typing in all lower-case.)
i’m starting from scratch, no formal training, no friends in the business. i believe that like artists, writers are born, but it takes a lot of hard work and dedication (and just a tad bit of luck) to become a professional storyteller.
