I was born and mostly raised in Fort Worth, Texas before migrating to Rhode Island. Since the age of 13 after finishing a book I had really no business reading at that age I discovered that I loved writing. I started a pile of short stories which turned into a funny little attempt at writing a novel; I was the only 16 year old I knew that spent more time with an old Smith Corona type-writer (it was so heavy that it use to shake my desk with every letter, never mind the violent lurch when I reached the end of a line) than chasing after girls, hanging in malls or any other typical teenager stuff from the late 80s.
Now I am married to the love of my life and we have brought into the world two wonderfully challenging children. So between keeping up with the day job, keeping up with the kids and carving out a little time with my wife, I allow myself to write fiction.
