Bewildering Stories biography

I’ve always been fascinated by adventure and have spent thirty years learning to write my own. Writers such as Harlan Ellison, Robert E. Howard, and Jack London inspired me, along with other visionary creators, from Gene Rodenberry to Gary Gygax.

Curiosity and restlessness drove me to earn degrees in both World Literature and Culinary Arts, and then use neither one of those degrees to work in the medical device industry for the past twenty years, holding roles in service, sales, and marketing.

I was born in Saint Louis, and after living in New York and Los Angeles, my wife and I have recently returned home to raise our three daughters.

My debut novel, The Curious Conspiracy on Gamma Ceti, was published in 2019, and you can learn more about me at
