  • How I Got My Book Deal

    None of the rejection matters now. ​

  • My first word was Batman

    My big brother is a huge influence. Ben helped shape my interests from the moment my parents brought me home. My baby book is proof. My first word was Batman. The story goes that my brother, who at the age of four was already a bonafide comic book fanatic, was beyond thrilled to welcome a…

  • Quantity Produces Quality: Is This True?

If you only write a few things, you’re doomed.” Ray Bradbury The quote that I pulled this from comes from a most prolific writer of short stories and a legend, in my opinion. Ray Bradbury was nothing if not infinitely quotable. He’s an inspiration to any writer not holding an MBA or…

    I finished a short story today and I’m excited to edit it, tomorrow. I’m digging short stories. Fun to write and not so painful to edit! So hoping to submit before the end of the month! As crazy as it seems, I’m going to find a way to get my name out there. This feels…
