Frequently Asked Questions
How do you pronounce your name?

When did you start writing?
I’m not entirely sure. I always wrote songs/poetry/stories when I was a kid. The first real story I remember putting a lot of effort into was a short story for a creative writing class in high school. I wrote about a man who was accidentally turned into a potted plant by a couple witches.
Where do you get inspiration?
Normally from history, and places. Many of my stories are inspired by history, mythology, or places that I’ve stumbled on in my travels around the country.
What is your favorite book?
Diary by Chuck Palahniuk. The Queen’s Fool by Philippa Gregory is a close second.
