Writing is the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do. My mother gave me a used copy of Stephen King’s Eyes of the Dragon when I was 12 and I was hooked—on King and reading.  Instead of paying attention in class, many times I was reading a book.  By the time I got to high school I’d begun writing my own stories.

I submitted my first story to Cemetery Dance back in 2000. It took somewhere around 7 months for them to respond.  I was so proud even though they’d rejected me. The truth of it was it wasn’t a very original story and it was very straightforward. There was a whole lot I didn’t know about writing back then. But I learned pretty quick and have since had stories published in print and on-line.

I’m always writing now.  So after having my first novel published in 2010, I decided to become my own publisher.  My latest project is How to Publish on Kindle, Smashwords, & Nook the Easy Way! and will be published on May 28, 2013.  Look for Heartbreak Hotel later this year.
