My love of books started with Hardy Boys and Jack London. I have been writing fiction since I was a child. I love to read, dissect story, and contemplate the impact of written words on the world.

I enjoy a hard day of labor and a quiet evening with my family, then a book.

Operating deep earth trenchers that dig up to sixty foot into the ground is my most unique job. We basically move lakes worth of water and mix concrete into the earth to support seawalls.

I've spent months in numerous cities around the world. Mes Cala, Guerero, Mexico and the oil sands of Alberta, Canada stand out as polar opposites. (In Mes Cala we often had armed guards on the job site decked in full body armor, carrying assault rifles).

I write in my truck, at my uncle's cabin, or during coffee breaks. I hope my stories are high-concept and daring. I aim to instill wonder and restore order using imagination.
