About

I’m a fantasy author. My brand of fantasy is not high fantasy, nor urban fantasy (although it often takes place in a modern setting). I take influence from fairy tales and mythology, but I don’t think my stories are much like fairy tales or mythology themselves. I like taking inspiration from dreams.

The novel I am currently trying to get published is for a middle grade audience (meaning for kids roughly between ages 9-12), but I’m thinking I shouldn’t restrict myself to that.  I’m a Christian, but my stories don’t have anything explictly Christian about them, and I intend to publish in the general market.

When I’m not writing, I also love listening to music, playing roguelike computer games, and of course reading.  My favorite authors (in order) are C.S. Lewis, JRR Tolkien, Terry Pratchett, and E.Nesbit, all of which have also written fantasy for children, but of them only Nesbit specialized in children’s books.
