I'm a chaos-driven writer from Kansas City.
I grew up in a family of five boys, which taught me a lot about patience and persistence. My parents were extremely supportive of creativity. We all pursued one form of art or another due to their influence.
I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, although I learned more from David Farland’s Novel Rewriting Workshop and Margie Lawson’s lecture packet on empowering characters’ emotions.
I'm married to Priscilla, a children's book writer and illustrator. We have two cats, a leopard gecko, and one peculiar ferret.
