I am a writer/artist of various types of speculative fiction but mostly modern fantasy. I have loved magic, and the people and creatures who live with it and use it, all my life, and writing and drawing these people in modern environments makes it all the more real to me. I also like to add an element of Darkness and horror, as well as science fiction, for "flavor". I am fascinated with everything from unicorns and dragons to vampires and demons. As an artist I enjoy working in most any medium, but my favorites are pencil and digital painting.

Personal Quote: Writing is almost like putting together a puzzle, only it's more like taking a bunch of old family home movies, photographs, scrapbooks, and a dollhouse, and splicing them together, digitally retouching and altering them, dubbing in celebrity voices, and hand-writing the credits until you've made them into a major motion picture.
