About Me

Hello,

Here are some interesting facts about me:


I am a disabled American Navy Veteran. I was diagnosed with multiple-personality disorder and thus I have days where it is difficult to write or think with the voices in my head. I chose to become a writer because I have been writing stories and poems my whole life.


I attended school at Cottonwood High School and South High School in Utah, American Intercontinental University Online, Corning Community College, and the College of Southern Nevada. I am currently going to Grand Canyon University for my degree in English and Professional Writing so I eventually can become an editor and writing coach of LGBTQ literature.


What I liked most about grade school and some college classes was the art and writing classes. I have been a writer since age 5 and throughout the years have tried to improve my writing skills. I found the most challenging classes to be my math courses since I am not that great at math. I also have trouble sometimes with tests. I had my first poem published at age 5 and my only regret is I do not have a copy of that poem, however my Mother has a copy of it in her cedar chest on a school newsletter from Truman Elementary. I have won poetry contests and when my stories were fan fiction I received over 300 reviews for more than one story, however I am slowly deleting these stories to make them into original pieces of work.


In my spare time, I write my stories and edit them and I also enjoy reading gay romance novels in the M/M genre mainly for research purposes. I spend most of my time reading or writing so I rarely watch movies, however when I do I like comedies and fantasy the most.

I have traveled the entire United States and parts of Canada with both the Navy and the Wesley Bell Ringers, a Methodist church group that performed all over the United States and Canada. My favorite place was New Orleans, Louisiana which someday I hope to buy a home there to live permanently in the Garden District.


I have lived in various locations traveling across the United States. The places I have lived are Elmira, NY, China Lake, CA, Salt Lake City, Murray, Taylorsville, West Valley, Granger, and Tooele, UT.


I was born in Granger, UT, but my parents had moved to Colorado for a short time so I also lived there, however I do not recall it as most of my childhood has been forgotten due to the sexual, physical, emotional, and verbal abuse I suffered from my Father from age 2 to age 13. I consider myself a survivor and no longer a victim. I am also divorced and happily single choosing to be celibate since the divorce and will be so for the rest of my life because of my past. I do not miss physical intimacy, but I do love writing about it and use visuals for references.


I now live in Mesquite, Nevada, but I had also lived in Las Vegas, NV for a short time. I do not miss the traffic in Vegas although most of my doctors are there which is 80 miles away from where I live now.


My Mother works at the Hospital here in Mesquite and we bought a house together. My son and niece live with us. My son works for Walmart and my niece works for Smith’s Food and Drug. We have three pets, my cat Sebastian, my Mom’s cat Gizmo, and my niece’s puppy Cali. I do love dogs and all animals despite what is written.


I am obtaining my degree to become a better writer working on improving my grammar skills. I thought about going into digital art since I am an artist so that I could do my own book covers, but I see more opportunities with a bachelor’s in English than in art although I could be wrong.


I chose Grand Canyon University since they offered a degree in English and professional writing although I am not fond of the Christian atmosphere possibly looking to change schools to SNHU (Southern New Hampshire University) to gain my degree in English and Fiction. I am improving myself so I can finish up my GI Bill benefits for school. I have looked into the colleges in Nevada and was unable to find the degree program I wanted locally so I figured I would try online studies.


This degree will help refine my writing skills and although I am not too concerned with it helping me spiritually, I do think it will help me professionally so that perhaps I can improve my creativity and not be quite so redundant in some of my stories.


The fans of my fan fiction writing that have left multiple reviews gave me some ideas, but a professional opinion sometimes is needed to help with what is selling in the book market. I am also always looking for beta readers and fans to read my ARCs.


I support the ASPCA on Amazon Smile and encourage my readers to buy through Amazon Smile since the money donated to charities like ASPCA, St. Jude, LGBTQ support programs, and other programs offered do help people which we all need to do. Every time you buy my books or anything else on Amazon consider using Amazon Smile for your purchases.


I worked many places throughout my lifetime, but my service in the U.S. Navy Reserves, and U.S. Navy in active duty were the most rewarding. In the past I have written M/F romance and I do write poetry.


I am working on a book that questions the belief systems of the bible as well as other questions I have pertaining to the world at large.  I will be calling this book

"The Most Interesting Story in the Universe".


It is a bit of an egotistical title to some, but if you look closer I am referring to every universe within our minds including our own little worlds.


I have traveled the entire United States and parts of Canada with both the Navy and the Wesley Bell Ringers, a Methodist church group that performed all over the United States and Canada.


The fans of my fan fiction writing have left multiple reviews giving me ideas, but a professional opinion sometimes is needed to help with what is selling in the book market. I am also always looking for beta readers to read my ARCs and until I do my own cover art I have had Amy Queau, Kennedy Kelly, Lisa Wilde, and hopefully soon Jay Aheer working on beautiful cover art for me.  


I published with Litfire Publishing for my first book, but I will be doing most of my publishing with KDP on Amazon.

Since I edit my own work, I strive for perfection, but even the best editors make mistakes.  Even the best written novels have a few passages, words, sentences, and grammar errors.  My Mother is a grammar Nazi so normally I would have her read over my work, but she is old fashioned and not into erotic romances.  My Mother likes mysteries which I also enjoy.


Aimee Nicole Walker has the "Curl Up and Dye Mysteries" erotic gay romance series which I enjoy and I have read all of her Fated Heart Series which is awesome.  Sloane Kennedy has the "Protectors Series", "Escort Series", "Baretti Series", and "Finding Series" I enjoy.  Andrew Gray, Devon Mccormack, Simon Strange, Nicholas Bella, Riley Hart (even if she killed off a character I loved, evil woman), RJ Scott, Annabella Michaels, SJ Himes, and Alexa Land are just a few of my favorite authors.  You can find their work on Goodreads, Amazon, and GRL.
