After high school I had to choose between work and school, and since I hated school at the time, it was an easy choice. When I was 22 I decided I had to do something different with my life and joined the United States Marine Corps. After spending five years with them, and serving two deployments in Iraq I came home. I didn't like being home so I signed up with a civilian contractor to spend almost two years in Afghanistan. Now I'm a student studying political science at the University of Utah.
- Salt Lake City, Utah
- I like hiking, camping, and rockhounding. I have two dogs and mostly I just go out and spend time with them.
- Favorite noveling music:
- I don't listen to music much while I'm writing. If I'm just casually writing then it doesn't matter what I listen to, but if I'm writing seriously then I don't like to listen to anything. For what it's worth my favorite music in general is country.
- Favorite books or authors:
- I mostly read fantasy novels, and it's hard to pick a favorite out of all of them. I will read just about anything I can get my hands on though. When I was younger I loved the Dragonlance series, and have always wanted to create a world like they did., I really enjoy Jim Butcher, but he's probably only my latest favorite. I like Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson, Margaret Weiss, and Tracy Hickman. Those are the ones that come to mind initially.
