When I was eight years old, I read A Wrinkle In Time by Madeline L’Engle and knew that I would be a writer. Shortly thereafter, I discovered Star Wars and fell in love with science fiction.
I didn’t get serious about writing until 2007, when I joined the Quark writing group at Brigham Young University. That’s when I started this blog. I finished my first novel a few months later, and have been writing consistently ever since.
While at BYU, I took Brandon Sanderson’s English 318R class twice and volunteered as a slush pile reader at Leading Edge, the student-run science fiction & fantasy magazine. I studied political science because it was the closest thing to psychohistory that I could find. On a whim, I signed up for an Arabic class and loved it so much that I added Middle Eastern studies as a second major, traveling to Jordan in the summer of 2008 as part of a study abroad program.
My dream is to make a living telling stories I love. Towards that end, I hope to release a minimum of two novels per year, in addition to novellas and short stories. I love connecting with readers, so don’t feel shy about posting in the comments or sending me an email! I read everything and try to respond as thoughtfully as I can.
Writing can be frustrating and difficult at times, but honestly, there’s nothing else I’d rather do. With epublishing and the ability to connect directly with readers, I feel that there’s never been a better time to be a writer.
