Profile Information

Writing about one’s self is always a difficult task. I could start with my childhood. However, there’s not much to write about, other than a rather pedestrian story about a kid, born and raised in Texas, who was (and is) a little out-of-step with what some might call “normal.” I could also start with my college life at art school, where I studied to become a graphic designer, but I suspect no one is particularly interested in that part of my life, either.

I should start with the birth of my fantasy world.

This journey into the world of fantasy all began in middle school with my fascination of dragons, and grew into a love for all things fantasy. I read every fantasy book I could get my hands on, including some popular favorites – Harry Potter, Eragon, Lord of The Rings, Narnia, and The Graceling Realm. And there are many others that could be mentioned, and perhaps should be, but time and space is limited.

Soon, it wasn’t enough for me to simply experience the product of the others’ imaginations. I needed to create my own fantasy world. A world where characters I’ve come to “know,” live out their lives. Where countries rise and fall, where wars are waged, where leaders and tyrants reign, and where people plot from the shadows or live in the light.

I have been building this world and the characters that live in it since 2010, and am now ready to share their stories. I hope that you find them as interesting as I do.
