I've been writing since I was old enough to hold a pencil, and am lucky enough to have had several poems and articles published in local and national outlets.  I (somewhat) regularly maintain the opinion blog, Mind Over Madness, and founded The Social Poet, an online poetry journal. Some of my favorite contemporary authors include Ruth Ware, Riley Sager, Kara Thomas, Megan Miranda, April Henry, Paula Hawkins, and of course, the late, great Michael Crichton. In addition to all the literary stuff, I'm also obsessed with horror movies, and wish every day could be Halloween.
