• Being a Reluctant Reader

    I was a very reluctant reader when I was young, so I write books to be as compelling and cinematic as the best films and video games, to turn reluctant readers into lifelong ones.

Bulking up

January 29, 2016
If you’ve been following this blog, you know that I’m obsessed with creating characters, stories, and worlds. I love writing fiction because it’s an organic process, probably the purest expression (after oral storytelling) of story.
