When did you start writing?
I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid, my grandfather instilled in me a love for telling stories. I’ve been chasing that passion ever since.
Honestly, I’m not sure. I’ve always been attracted to dark, offbeat topics. In my formative years, I devoured the Goosebumps books and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, along with episodes of Courage the Cowardly Dog and Are You Afraid of the Dark?. Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I love all things spooky.
Horror feels right. What else can I say?
What’s your writing process?
Once I come up with an idea, I procrastinate by making inspiration boards on Pinterest (not a joke). Then, I outline the book using either the seven-point structure or the Save the Cat structure. From there, I fast-draft the book in about a month, writing up to 3,000 words per day. Then, I edit it and send it to beta readers to comb through and look for typos. From there, I might do another edit and then upload and publish the book.
Media & More Info
One of my favorite things about being an author is doing talkbacks, book signings, and appearances. If you want me visit your school, library, or book club, please email me to inquire. I’m also available to visit via Zoom. These visits/sessions are free so long as I am available.
I also love attending book festivals and conventions! Please email to inquire or invite me.
