Unveiling the Writer
I knew from about when I was 16 that writing would always play an important part in my life. I started my first novel "Elements: A Whisper of Wind" around the time I was 17. In 2015, I realized I wanted to follow my passion for writing and I haven’t looked back since. It's who I am, it's whom I want to be, and it's who I will be.
I have been a fan of the fantasy genre since I could speak. From the realm of Disney to Lucas Arts (then back to Disney when they bought the Star Wars franchise), and across a multitude of fantastical universes, I've loved the mystifying aspects of pretty much anything fiction. As a dreamer, writing fantasy has given me a unique tool to convey art through words. I believe that this art holds the key to unlocking a door to adventures not attainable in this world. As a member of the League of Utah Writers, I've had the opportunity to meet many writers that have guided my career to this point. I spent ten years honing my craft and am excited to continue my development with the future releases of the Elements series. Aside from writing, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing video games, 3D digital modeling, and composing music. I feel a very deep connection to nature and often find the inspiration for my work while driving through Utah’s winding mountain roads. Above all things in nature, however, I have a particular fascination with the elemental forces. Earth (controlled by Stone Guardians in this series) is my favorite. I love forests and plant life in general. It’s my dream to one day own a greenhouse where I can house many varieties of bonsai species.
Please feel free to contact me directly if you would like to learn more about my work or my innovative approach to writing. Also, if you are interested in having me attend your book club as a guest speaker/interactor, I would love to explore that option with you!
