I have been working in graphic design and marketing for the past twenty years, but have recently turned increasingly to writing. I live in the Piedmont Plateau with my wife and five children.

I was born in 1973 in Spartanburg, South Carolina. We moved to Greenville when I was in middle school. My dad was a system analyst, so I grew up building personal computers with my dad and testing the latest graphic design software. Imagine changing from four-color graphics to sixteen-color graphics. The possibilities were endless!
I was introduced to fantasy through the Mind’s Eye radio theater productions of The Hobbit (1980) and The Lord of the Rings (1979) as well as playing Phantasie III on my friend’s Commodore 64.
