I weave words to induce emotion and thought.


I am a self proclaimed dabbler. I write for me... if others like it, all the better! I don't think I have a "style", nor do I try to mold myself to be like any other "popular" writer. I feel the fun in writing is trying new things.

I am working on a book (aren't we all?) and hope to have it done before I need someone else's eyes to read it to me.

I love feedback, feel free to contact me.

Birth Place: Los Angeles, CA USA

Accomplishments: I've been in several magazines, a book or two with short stories. I have a few poems in some coffee table books. I don't own any of them but, I hear they are pretty.

When time allows, I still write poetry and short stories. And, sadly, I stare at the novels I will someday finish.
