I'm the author of Small Things and Threads (the first two books in the Small Things trilogy,) as well as Memories of a Ghost and Odds and Endings: Fiction Short and Otherwise, and have had short stories appear in several anthologies. I also have a potential television series, The Mandela Effect, in development with CouncilTree Productions.

 I'm currently working on finishing the third and final book in the Small Things trilogy (A Pattern of Shadows) as well as another unrelated novel and various short stories and novellas. 


In addition to being an author, I'm a substitute teacher. I'd like to write full time, so I can get more novels and short stories out the door for you to read, but writing for a living is inherently unstable. To write full-time, I need reliable funding. Enjoy my books and want to see more from me? Support me via Patreon. I won't let you down, I promise.



When you "subscribe" to me, you'll get all sorts of fun rewards, including access to my works in progress. Depending on the tier to which you subscribe, you'll also get copies of my novels, bookmarks, previously-unpublished short stories, new short stories (I plan to write one a month!), access to special Q&A sessions, videos, and even have your name listed in the "Thank You" section of my future novels. 

I will add rewards as I gain subscribers. I might even hold a drawing for naming rights in one of my future novels. I'm open to suggestions!
