ABOUT ME

I am a Canadian, born in Victoria, British Columbia raised on the prairies of Northern Alberta. After spending the majority of my life battling sasquatches in the Great White North, I migrated south to Texas to have a go at the armadillos. I have always been a connoisseur and creator of horror, speculative fiction, and fantasy. Many moons ago, a rampant love of reading led me to believe I could weave a good tale like all the great books I devour. Now I am an award-winning author and an affiliate member of the Horror Writers Association! It’s a dream come true.
