I teach English Language Arts to middle school students in Greenville, South Carolina. I grew up loving to read, and this passion grew into a love of writing as well. I wrote my first real story in sixth grade and sent it to my favorite author at the time, Stephen King. He sent me a card back saying that he liked it. I think he was just being gracious.
I wanted to write movie scripts and do special effects and monster make-up for movies for a while after this, but found a real passion for writing in college. After I graduated, I got a job reviewing games for my local paper. Now, I teach and am working on a novel, as well as a variety of other short stories and works.
