I grew up in Syracuse, New York. Currently I reside in Maryland where I teach English, Creative Writing, Film, and Theatre on the middle school level. At the insistence of my own students, I began writing seriously in 2014. I credit my love for story to my mother, who spent countless hours reading to my siblings and me when we were growing up. Growing up, I devoured the literary works of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Piers Anthony, and many others. Mysteries, thrillers, and fantasies are among the genres I most frequently read. When I'm not writing, I'm reading, teaching, camping, or at a live music concert.
With this little bookshop, I hope to bring to you my own work and the work of fellow indie authors I know. In addition, I'm building a list of books I personally recommend because they are particularly well-written or because they were particularly impactful to me, a reader.
