When I was thirteen years old I read The Talisman, by Stephen King, and a seed of an idea was planted that someday I, too, wanted to create different worlds and realities.
After a stint in the US Army, a year as a long-haul truck driver, and a couple as a log home builder, I enrolled at the University of Montana. There, I majored in Psychology and, by chance, took a creative writing course that allowed me to revisit the idea of writing. Words started to flow, and worlds were born.
After college, I started a small woodworking business with the express purpose of using it to fund my writing journey.
I live in Montana with my wife and a bodyguard, a Mini-Schnauzer named Jonesy.
