About me

I grew up in Southern California and fell in love with writing because my parents wouldn’t let me play with the neighbors. I started college as a creative writing major, but my father told me that he would never pay for a degree in something that wouldn’t earn a paycheck so I became a historian and history teacher (AP U.S. history). I live in Colorado where I spend time with my wife and son, seek representation for my novel THE DOGS OF HELL, research my next novels WAKARUSA and DUTCH, write book reviews for HNS, and work with the amazing US editorial team for HNR.
