For years, I wrote in private.
My stories were, and still are, quite personal. Writing was a release - a way to express myself to the world, while remaining veiled behind a shield of poetic prose.
I love connecting with people through coaching and teaching. Writing gave me another avenue to connect with the world. When I began sharing my writing, I was met with unexpected support.
In 2019, I started to consider writing as a possible career, rather than a private hobby. I self-published my first book, You, Me, and a Tree - an adaptation from a gift to my wife. From there, I was fortunate to sign with an agent, Connor Eck at Lucinda Literary.
In 2020, my next book, The Book That Almost Rhymed, was signed by Jessica Garrison at Dial Books for Young Readers, an imprint of Penguin Random House.
I love to connect with others. So, get in touch!
