I have lived everywhere from New York to San Francisco, but currently live on the prairies of Kansas. I recently completed a Master of Arts in English Literature from the University of Kansas where I managed to convince my thesis committee to let me write about twelfth-century Breton werewolf stories. By day I do IT support; by night I write fiction. I'm a fan of comic books, folk tales, pulp, noir, horror, wuxia, and spaghetti westerns. My literary influences are an equally mixed bag: Stephen King, Elmore Leonard, William Gibson, and Robert E. Howard, among many others.
