I’ve lived in Utah for nearly twenty years and in the Tooele area for about fifteen of those years. I started out just shouting my stories at any family members that stood still long enough to fall victim. Eventually, I reached Kindergarten age and learned how to write. After that I started shoving my scribbled manuscripts at everyone instead. I primarily write fantasy and short psychological-horror. I’m currently writing a fantasy series with the working title of The Chronicles of the Gossamer Dreams. The first book (The Changeling Boy) tells the story of an eleven-year-old boy who discovers that he is actually a changeling warrior prophesied to save the fae existence. I have a few other stories that I’m looking forward to writing, but the chronicles characters are currently demanding all of my attention. I can’t say I blame them though. I’d be rather demanding if I were living in a world about to collapse.”
