Born in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1970, I have been writing for most of my life but have previously only had research papers and technical documents published. A cancer survivor, my day job is, ironically, as a biologist in a lab that looks for genetic markers for hereditary cancer. When not working or writing I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter, reading, gaming and going to the movies.
