I am the founder of the Late Nite Books publishing imprint (2009) and a fiction author. My recent release of The Dying Times (Nov. 2010) was met with critic and reviewer acclaim, landing a review in the Midwest Book Review (Dec. 2010, “Reviewer’s Bookwatch) and on several other reviewer websites.
Other titles in the Survivor Chronicles series include The War of the Dead (scheduled Feb. 2011), Prisoner and Survivor (scheduled May 2011), and several other titles to complete the series around the end of 2011/beginning of 2012.
I am currently employed as a police and fire dispatcher and as a 911 services operator in Mississippi. I write novels as a form of stress relief and management, and I believe that, of the options available, using my unique talent in writing is better than the alternatives. I am married to a wonderful wife, and we have a beautiful daughter together (born Apr. 2010).
My major influences for writing are varied and widespread. I like telling a good story that keeps you turning the pages, but I like it when a book doesn't require you to pop out a dictionary just to make it through. I've been described as a pedestrian writer, and I say 'thank you'. I write for the vast majority of people who like good stories that are easy to follow, but they also make you think and draw you in to a different world.
