I’m a storyteller, writer, and teacher. During the day, I work with middle school students. My focuses are language arts and literacy. At home, I set aside time every day to write on my blog, craft short fiction, and produce chapters for my fantasy book series, A Thousand Watchful Eyes.
This site is a hub for my work. Here, you can see my process behind creating a nine-novel fantasy series, a five-novel prequel quintet, and a collection of short stories. I also include links to challenges and experiments I host through my blog and social media accounts.
When I research for my novels, it takes me to new and intriguing places. Therefore, the articles on this site and on Paper Palaces range a variety of subjects. For example, these topics are currently popular: reading and writing fiction, building fictional worlds, crafting maps, and setting goals.
I want to write as many books as I can in a short span of time. Why? I feel compelled to tell stories, and I know that I have a limited time to do so. I’m trying to accomplish as much as I can in the next ten years, and after that, I hope to accomplish more.
The Next Five Years
For the next five years, I am dedicating a majority of my creative time exploring novel writing, creating solid scenes, and crafting fiction.
I have one purpose in mind: to write good books, and make each one better than the last.
