About Me

I grew up in a two-stoplight town wondering what life could be like outside the town limits. While I was young, I did this by reading fantasy and science fiction books, visiting worlds other writers dreamed up for me. 

When I got older, I did this by traveling the world to study endangered languages and living in the mountains of Papua New Guinea. 

Now that I’m back home in the US, I discover new worlds by writing fantasy and science fiction and creating fantasy and science fiction covers, dreaming up my own worlds for other people to visit and helping other other authors invite readers into theirs.
