I began writing poetry while in college at Murray State University. In 2004, I published a collection of poetry, AN OLD MAN which represents nearly a decade of writing poetry.
For many years, I tried to transition from writing poetry to writing novels but nothing ever seemed to take. Then in early 2009, I got the idea for THE BOOK OF JUBILEES. At first there were no plans or ambitions other than that to see if I could actually write a novel. In fact, THE BOOK OF JUBILEES was almost completely handwritten in a notebook.
During the second half of 2010, I completed the first draft of MORE ANGER THAT SORROW, which I feel really defined me as a writer. It allowed me to expand out of historical fantasy into writing thrillers. I spent the rest of 2010 writing INTENSITY. CALLING BABEL followed in 2011.
I live in South Carolina with my wife and three sons.
