Who Am I?
I've been reading and writing as long as I can remember, which I guess means since at least last Tuesday. Seriously though, you always hear people ask writers why they write. It just never seemed like a choice to me. It's just something I do. For good or bad, it is what it is.
I'm the author of three books: Not Quite so Stories (forthcoming from Literary Wanderlust), The Garden of Good and Evil Pancakes (2015 national indie excellence awards finalist in humor), and Bones Buried in the Dirt (2014 Next Generation Indie Book Awards finalist, First Novel <80K). My writing appears in Bartleby Snopes, Grey Sparrow Journal, Atticus Review, and others.
I'm from Nebraska originally and spend most of my life there with occasional side trips to Loveland, Bellingham, and Seattle. I moved to Denver a couple years back and have been there ever since.
I have four college degrees now. I got a BS in computer science (original major was psychology) from UNO and a JD from Creighton. While working as a patent attorney, I picked up a BA in english lit from NYIT and went back for a MFA in creative writing through the University of Nebraska program.
Currently I live in Denver and work as a patent attorney. I spend most of my non-work time reading and writing. At the moment I'm working on a number of different pieces of different kinds. Keep an eye on the news section. If anything develops I'll post it there.
