"What do you do for fun?" inquires the casual inquirer.

A frown and a shrug precede my response. "Everything."

I rarely find myself doing anything if I don't like it. (insert fatalistic platitude) Life is too short.

About me though:

I have a Master's in Human Resources.

Geeks R' Me

And I love writing fantasy.

Nerd Alert.

My writing really takes on a lot of my personality. It's thoughtful, very serious, but it's upbeat with 3 cups of comedy. Typically, my characters -- especially my main characters -- will be spearheaded and ambitious. And my side characters will be my alter ego -- the whole comedic, extroverted side.

Strangely, Seize the Soul is the opposite. My main character is comical and quirky and the side character is Mr. Level-headed.

Beyond that, I live outside of Raleigh, NC -- which is where my contemporary fantasy series are set. I have one wife, four kids (four and no more!), four snakes (small ones -- none larger than 6ft), and a Beautiful Brindle Bullmastiff named after Starscream's nemesis. Yup! You guessed it. Optimus Prime. We call him Optimus for short.

I'm an avid gamer so I sold my PS4 deciding that I can't be an HR Manager, a gamer, a writer, a husband, a dad of humans, a dad of a dog, and an owner of snakes while doing all of that equally well.

Last but least. Yes. Least. I get terrible insomnia. And I have an allergy to shellfish-ISH. It's not exactly "shellfish."

I can't eat shrimp.
I CAN eat mussels.
I can't eat lobster.
I CAN eat oysters.
I can't eat clams.
I CAN eat octopus.
I can't eat calamari.

Basically, I have very emotional allergies who get stressed out and eat two bowls of mac n cheese and then get introspective about how they keep promising themselves that they're going to lose weight but can't ever do it because every first-day-on-the-diet day turns out to be a disaster because some little-miss-I-wanna-impress-my-coworkers brings in doughnuts and she knows you lovvve lemon filled so she brings you two.

That's the kinda allergies I have!

Anyway. Read my books. You'll love them. If you don't, it's not me. It's you. Enjoy!
