Welcome to my site!
Come in. Sit down. Take a load off.
As a Maritimer, I feel like I should offer you a drink (for those of you who aren't familiar with Canadian geography, the Maritimes is a region made up of the provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island. And no, don't ask me why Newfoundland didn't make the cut because I don't know, but I think it's a damn shame). However, as we're meeting virtually, you'll just have to pour one for yourself.
If you've made it here, you probably came because my friends (God love 'em) hounded you into checking out my work. Let me just say that I mightily appreciate it and I will make it worth your while. So who exactly am I and what is it I'm doing? Well, I'm an aspiring author.
You see, I decided to begin this crazy journey into the Wild World of Writing four years ago when a friend suggested I try a NaNoWriMo competition. This was one of the best decisions I've ever made, as it allowed the over-active imagination I've had since childhood to have an outlet and run free in a safe environment. After the competition ended, I was hooked on writing fiction (I'd been writing academically for years up to that point as it had originally been my goal to become a professor of Classics, as in the ancient Greeks and Romans, not literature, just in case there's any confusion over what "Classics" means). It was nice distraction but I wasn't serious enough at the time to take it beyond just writing for the fun of it. However, several NaNoWriMo competitions later, I couldn't deny anymore just how much I enjoyed writing fiction. So, after much encouragement from my dear friends (and a few actual authors), I decided to take writing seriously. A few workshops later and here we are (or, rather, here I am) making a go of becoming a novelist.
So, feel free to follow me along this journey; I'd love to have you along for the ride. Check out the News Forum for updates on upcoming projects, or if you want to know more about me, check out the About or Contact sections. I'd love to hear from you.
