Born in south western Canada in 1985, I spent much of his youth devouring fantasy novels, film, and video games. After some time in Simon Fraser University’s criminology program, I moved back to Vancouver Island to start a family and took up a job in construction. With no other creative outlet I set out to pen my first novel, which followed the life of an unlikely military commander and rebellion leader. The result was a successful completion of the NaNoWriMo guidelines, but ultimately a scrapped novel. After a second and third failed attempt at the story, the project was dropped.
After several more years I began to take writing far more seriously, and started to write other projects, some of which are on this blog. While being a novelist is still my ultimate goal, in the interim I am satisfying myself by developing my craft and blogging about my experiences. Sit down, look around, and enjoy.
