As a kid I always knew I was going to be a writer. It was that or being the guy who hands out cheese samples at the supermarket.

Though I'm still fond of cheese chunks on a toothpick, being a writer means I get to make stuff up every day. Let me tell you, that's a pretty great way to spend your time. Especially if you have a dog named Zeus perched on the chair behind you and an iced coffee by your side. Give me those things and then I'm all set to do my best finding the words that tell a story I hope you'll like.
