I am a writer and artist originally from Long Island, New York. A love of storytelling was engendered in me at a very young age. I was challenged by my mother to make up the ending of stories that she started. I wrote my first “book” at age five. It began a creative drive that followed me through adulthood. I've always made writing a part of my life, whether it was my involvement with my high school literary magazine, creating my own web comic, maintaining a blog, or self-publishing my stories.

I know many creative people who struggle to find a an outlet for all that energy. What's amazing about writing is that it isn't just an outlet. Its a way to create worlds, universes and beyond, and all it asks for is a pen, paper, and time.(less)
