As you may have already concluded, I am an aspiring novelist in addition to my legitimate career and other hobbies. I have only recently begun sharing my writing with others and hope to someday publish a full-length novel (preferably sooner than later).
Most of my formal training and experience is in technical writing- editing university grant requests, reviewing research articles, creating policy and procedural documents, etc… So, I tend to veer in the exact opposite direction when writing for fun. My writing interests vary widely but tend to remain strictly within the realm of the fictional universe.
My current project is a series of urban fantasy novels following the life of a young college professor who moonlights as a cryptozoologist. I also have a post-apocalyptic short story I plan to expand to a full length novel, ideas for a cybernetic science fiction piece, and notes for a religious-toned horror novel.
Check back here for regular writing updates and the occasional story excerpt or flash fiction piece. I am always looking for beta readers, so if you are interested in reading and reviewing works-in-progress, let me know!
