About Me

I started taking writing seriously in my junior year of college. I learned in an essay class that good writing is better editing. Since that time I've tried to develop a casual style and conversational voice. Some of my literary heroes are Hemingway, Tennyson, Faulkner, Byron, Tolkien and Paul Simon.

I'm a musician and I love history, so a lot of my writing seems to draw something from those two subject areas. I particularly like anecdotal, or quirky history, such as eccentric figures and chance occurrences. 

I'm also an avid outdoorsman and enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, and, subsequently, the poetry of Wordsworth and Frost.
