By day, I am a mild mannered IT professional. I have been in the technology field for over 20 years. One day, in 2011, I started pondering story ideas until they leapt out of my brain and onto paper… onto the computer to be precise. Join me as I discover which genre suits my writing style best. Fantasy, Sci Fi, Thriller, or perhaps...all of the afore mentioned. The road is dreary and my journey long, sit back and enjoy a tale as we travel it together.
