I’ve known I wanted to write since the age of ten or so. The first thing of any length I ever wrote was an apocalyptic mystery that was a blatant rip off of The Stand, written when I was fourteen. It was not good.
In the time that has passed, I’ve managed to get a little better. I’ve had more than fifty short stories and poems published in online and print publications, most notably being included in Norton’s Hint Fiction Anthology. I’ve written in a wide range of publications and mediums, from a horror anthology thematically based on The Wizard of Oz to writing the script for the mobile choose-your-adventure game, Buried.
The early part of my career was spent writing horror and dark fantasy, resulting in the publication of a few novels including The Bleeding Room, Serpentine, and Nests (which made me an international author). More recent titles include my venture into self-publishing with my Cooper M. Reid series. I have also had some small press success in the Christian fiction market with my books Break Every Chain and Bound.
In addition to my work as a ghostwriter and my published works, I also work under a few pen names in order to write in different genres while still maintaining my sanity.
I spend my days working as a ghostwriter on primarily creative non-fiction and fiction of the thriller, middle grade, and young adult varieties.
I enjoy ambient electronic music, coffee, and irony.
