After having survived a major stroke, I became a full-time writer. Since I am a quadriplegic, I write using my iPhone and one thumb. I am the author of Parachute Island, The Valiants, as well as other works. I studied chemistry, psychology, and art at Williams College. I have also studied creative writing at various institutes. I write anything that piques my interest, though mostly, I write speculative fiction (science fiction, fantasy, and/or horror). Some of my favorite authors are Stephen King, Charles Dickens, William Shakespeare, Haruki Murakami, Ray Bradbury, H. P. Lovecraft, and Alan Dean Foster. I currently reside in San Antonio, Texas.
