My Story

Born and raised in the scenic landscapes of Connecticut, I spent my formative years exploring the enchanting corners of New London County. Even from a tender age, I harbored a deep-seated desire to create, though the form it would take remained a tantalizing mystery.

 

My journey into the realm of creativity began with a kaleidoscope of aspirations, ranging from inventor to actor to director, until fate intervened with the irresistible allure of storytelling.

My earliest forays into writing manifested during my elementary school days, where, unbeknownst to me, I delved into the realm of fanfiction for my beloved horror movies. Despite the absence of a formal term for such endeavors at the time, my imagination ran wild, weaving tales that danced on the fringes of established narratives.

 

It wasn't until the introduction to Dungeons & Dragons, a game of boundless imagination and limitless possibilities, that I found my true calling. With newfound freedom, I sculpted characters, crafted worlds, and embarked on epic adventures that fueled my passion for storytelling.

Immersed in the tapestry of high fantasy, I found solace and inspiration, becoming an integral part of the vibrant tabletop RPG community. Yet, as life's demands grew, my writing journey ebbed and flowed, relegated to the sidelines as responsibilities took precedence.

 

However, fate had one more twist in store. With the acquisition of my first Kindle, a gateway to a world of independent publishing, my dormant passion reignited with fervor. Fuelled by the amalgamation of my experiences in fantasy and horror RPGs, I embarked on a new chapter, penning the inaugural installment of the Malevolent Prisoners series.

 

Now, as I stand on the precipice of literary adventure, I invite readers to join me on a journey where imagination knows no bounds and darkness lurks in the shadows, waiting to be unleashed.
