to Bewildering Stories bibliography

I am both an author and a graphic artist, though my three cats would tell you a different story. They’re of the opinion that my only reason for existence is to feed them, pet them and let them in or out of the house! They’re good kitties though, and make wonderful companions.

I started writing in my Junior year of high school. At the time, I’d read everything the school library had that interested me, so it just seemed natural to write what I wanted to read, since no one else was. A small group of us would get together and talk stories, developing characters, plot lines and just in general having fun. My universe, and ultimately the books I have in print, developed out of that.

Being a writer is a lot like living on a wild roller coaster. Sometimes all you can do is hang on for the ride while the story pours out of your fingers, and sometimes you have to fight tooth and nail for every letter! It’s a lot of fun, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. It would be nice though if inspiration didn’t insist on hitting me after the lights were out and I was half-asleep so often!

Along with fiction, I also write poetry. I don’t write free verse often, it’s just not something that matches with my inner self. I stick more with specific rhyme and meter. While some people might consider that restrictive, I am very pattern oriented. The words generate stanzas, and I usually don’t have much control over that.

I am also a freelance journalist and photographer for the Eagle Citizen, covering Blue Mound, Saginaw and Eagle Mountain.
