Hi,

I'm originally a Wisconsin native, who has been in Colorado since '86. I have three degrees, but the one most relevant is my Bachelor's in Creative Writing from the University of Colorado - Denver, which I earned Summa Cum Laude for my weird western novella. I'm planning on going back for my MFA in the near future.

I've always loved working with kids since I was one myself, but have tutored people of all ages. Since becoming an author and editor, I've spoken at schools, libraries, colleges, and at conventions on the craft of writing. I recently started mentoring a high school student on his senior novel project.

The topics I feel most comfortable mentoring are around creative writing, especially fiction. I can do fiction, speculative fiction, and screenplays. I will also do non-fiction or poetry, but I'm not as comfortable in those topics. I love short fiction from flash (under 1K words) to novelettes (15K). Given the time restraints, I can only work on first chapters of novels, not full length.

I have a very relaxed style and will ply you with obscure movie, television, music, comic book, and novel references. I'm not at all serious, having been a stand up comic in another life (obviously not a good one, or I'd still be doing it.)

I have a wide range of geeky/nerdy hobbies from anime to Mayan History. I also am a Packer Backer, having followed the Green Bay Packers my whole life. I enjoy watching beach volleyball, lacrosse, and hockey. I travel around the country to conventions and love exploring new cities and cuisines.

I look forward to working with you.
