I wrote my first novel in high school. It was about a nerdy teenage boy who got sucked into a fantasy world and had to gather four magical swords to defeat an evil sorcerer. There were elves involved.
It was awful.
Then I wrote my next book, an epic fantasy with flying ships and floating kingdoms. It was pretty awful, too. As I wrote novel after novel, the quality of my writing gradually progressed from “awful” to just “bad,” then to “meh,” and eventually to “halfway decent.” By the time I wrote Hero Status, I’d put in several years and hundreds of thousands of words of practice to finally reach “good.”
I love stories, whether I’m writing, reading, or watching them. Batman: The Animated Series is probably to blame for my superhero obsession, and I thought books were uncool in elementary school before I read Harry Potter, and then BOOKS WERE EVERYTHING. Some other stories I love are Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, Star Wars, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Sailor Moon, and you know what? I’ll stop now before this entire page becomes a list of my fandoms.
I was born and raised in Florida, lived in Japan for several years, and somehow ended up in the Midwest for a while before moving back to Florida. Wherever I live, I bring imaginary people with me and write stories about them. I hope you enjoy visiting the worlds I create.
Thanks for stopping by, and happy reading!
