I am a software engineer by day and an author by night.
I have always wanted to be an author, however, and only recently did I finally embark upon this idea that I could craft stories. I took part in my first successful NaNoWriMo back in 2014, though before that I had published a short story with another friend in an anthology. It was a project that I did with a friend that showed both of us that we could spend the time it takes to write novels. In April of 2015, I did my first standalone project, which I also completed. That was the birth of the Kingdom of Rust idea, though, at the time, it had an entirely different name. So now, here I am, creating software and working through my first book.
I’m an avid reader (the Book Nation that is slowly consuming my house tells me that I probably have at least a good 2,000 – 5,000 books) and I love to spend my free time writing in various forms.
Other interests and hobbies include photography, hiking, painting, and more!
Recently, I started making chainmaille jewelry. I started after getting inspired to make a bracelet that features in one of my books. Since then, I’ve realized that I have an affinity for it. So in addition to my day job and my evenings as a writer, I make and sell jewelry on Etsy.
