I read, I write, I take pictures. I muse about all three.
I think it would be safe to say that the largest influence on me has been J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. I read them as a child and they imbued a sense of wonder and magic into my soul that has never left. I read fantasy and science fiction with a smattering of other things for added flavor. I write science fiction and fantasy. I take pictures of everything but my quest is to see a mountain lion and a bear — hopefully together, in a battle… with ninjas.
