Under my pen names, I’ve written:
I have well over a million words on the market. I guess that would make me a novelist, but that title sounds too pretentious. All I do is sit here and write.
Anything, really. But lately I've been enchanted with psychological thrillers and romance. My debut novel under my real name is Groupthink, which is kind of like Fight Club, but with a lot more sex.
Yeah bruh. This is my "job," I guess.
Though it doesn't really feel like a job since I'm just clacking away at this keyboard all day. I have the freedom to write whatever I want, travel, and generally spend my time goofing off.
The way I see it, my purpose is to experience everything life has to offer (good and bad), then tell you the truth about it.
Short answer? Revenge.
It's a long, dramatic story. You can read it here.
Yep, that's right.
A million years ago I worked as a graphic designer. I make acrylic paintings that I sell on Etsy. I also create digital art that you'll see peppered throughout this site.
In tech industry terms, I became this stressed out creature called a full-stack engineer. Honestly, I relate more to a full stack of pancakes.
Anyway, I got so good at computer shit that I attracted the attention of the Master Hand of Media, Facebook.
Software developer. Engineer. Whatever.
I spent a year of my life there fiddling and fussing with their code.
Well, I started all this by writing oodles of erotica all those years ago. At this point it feels weird if I go too long without a sex scene. In my opinion, sex gives my stories elements of realness, intimacy, and truth missing from mainstream media.
We don't cut to black in real life. Why would I do it on the page?
I'm just a rando on the internet who writes fiction for a living. Take everything I say with a grain of salt, then add more salt to it. Poison the whole batch with sodium chloride.
I've got a pair of bachelor's degrees from the University of Michigan.
One in art & design, the other's in psychology.
Other than that, I just read a lot.
