    About me

    As a screenwriter I am currently working with Shadow Wolves Productions and Paid In Blood Films to create the horror short "Thunk".  I've also been a Semi-Finalist (top 2% out of 7,000 entries) in the Austin Film Festival Screenplay Competition.  My short stories and poems have been published over 60 times and have earned 3 Honorable Mentions in the annual "Year's Best Fantasy and Horror" anthologies. My favorite genre to write is horror, though my interests broadly include anything dark, speculative, or off-beat. I believe my professional background as a behavior specialist helps me create realistic characters and place them in terrifying situations.


    Additional Information

    I've served as a volunteer leader of a no-kill animal shelter since 2004.
