I have been writing well since 1990, but been writing full time since 1996. Influences range from Edgar Allen Poe and Ray Bradbury to H.P. Lovecraft and Jack London. I have a tendicity to use the stream of conciousness writing style which is a rare style to use now or days. I was born August 3, 1976, in Elk Grove, Illinois. I had lived in Illinois for a good part of my life but a short stay in Mason City, Iowa.     
I am published on the small press level and been published online at various gothic magazines as well as a few other websites which are set up for writers, also been published semi-professionally. I have been doing self publishing online now for ELEVEN years, the site Writings From The Grave was the way I got my writing out there. So now I am building up the following and the contacts then I will seek out the magazines. I am a published author online but in print publishing, I am still trying to get my feet wet. I had sought out a few other places like this one, and hopefully that I will be widely published in print on the bigger magazines.

I do a lot of my own photography, and some of it creates the tone for my writing. I discovered the ability to scare the readers when I was in college. I have been going the online authors communities now for four of the six years that I have been online. My website been around since 1997. As of this time I am currently single -- the Gomez Addams without his Morticia. I just hope I can find a lady I cannot scare off because of the writing.

My written works as they are posted here would be either exclusives, or reissued writings that were previously published via my website I've got published as of September 2004 with an anthology called Reality Check then self-published more than a few projects. I've been published on various print magazines and rant my own anthologies ever since.
