About me

Occupation Writer
Location Pomona, California, United States
Introduction I began seriously writing at the age of 12. Upon discovering the macabre work of Edgar Allan Poe, I took a borderline obsessive interest in writing horror and dark fantasy poetry and even a few fantasy novels. My favorite authors of horror and fantasy at that time were Stephen King, Dean Koontz, J.R.R. Tolkein, Piers Anthony, and Brian Jacques who also influenced my work. I wrote up until my senior year of high school and then took a break before starting up again after college in 2011. With a nudge from a new friend, I discovered a new kind of horror, dark fantasy, and weird work from authors like Clark Ashton Smith, H.P. Lovecraft, George Sterling, Donald Sidney-Fryer, and David Park Barnitz. With this new treasure trove of horror and weird authors, I began to add short stories to my writing collection. I first got published by the Horror Zine in 2011 and have since been published by other publishers such as Hippocampus Press, Centipede Press, Wildside Press, Burial Day Books, Martian Migraine Press and others.
