I have been writing stories since I was 6 years old. My earliest story was writing and drawing my first comic book “MANGLOR” way back in the 2nd grade. In the 4th grade, our teacher had as an assignment for everyone to write their own short chapterbook. Mine was an Encyclopedia Brown knockoff called “Rex Mariner: Kid Detective.” And in the 5th grade, our English teacher gave us an hour everyday of “fluency” writing where we wrote about whatever we felt like writing about. I wrote a serialized sci-fi satire story called “Time Battler: Soldier of the Future” which I was encouraged to read aloud to the class.

Flash forward to now, and I now have quite a few publishing credentials on my resume. I wrote, illustrated and self-published two monthly comic books while in high school. I was an entertainment journalist for 4 years at the Michigan Daily Newspaper while in college. I wrote and illustrated comic book stories for two different anthology books during that time, too. I’ve had three short stories and a poem published since graduating, one of those stories placing third in a national fantasy story contest. I’ve written and illustrated two weekly webcomics. I’ve contributed articles for two different magazines; a trade journal and a consumer magazine. And that’s all before you count the four novels, graphic novel and illustrated chapbook I’ve written and gotten published.
