While I can’t say that I’m technically qualified to write speculative fiction, what sort of fiction writer really is? We start with a little bit of what we know and then weave our fantastic tales from that point. I write about the stuff that scares me, that shows up in my dreams, and that even tickles my funny bone. I just hope there’s an audience for what I’m putting out there.
“I’ve Scene It”
I originally wrote this story a couple years ago to try and sort out any fears I had about the future of video games (and technology, in general). I’m currently rewriting this in the hopes of seeing it in print this year.
After way too many years working of as a desk jockey, I decided to take my frustrations out on my notebook. This story about work nightmares, misspellings, and intolerable bosses is what came of that. I haven’t really shopped this one around yet because it still strikes too close to home (for now).
This is my baby. It originally started out as a short story back in 2014. I workshopped it at the Peripatetic Writer’s Retreat in 2015 where I received a lot of helpful feedback and some encouragement to turn it into a full-length novel. Two years and three-and-a-half revisions later, I’m almost done with it. If you have ever had a weird doctor’s appointment and like to imagine the possibilities of tech in the future, this’ll be something I’d encourage you to stay tuned for.

No matter what industry you're in, you understand the importance of marketing. Without the ability to effectively market yourself and your business, you're relegated to relying on business leads through word-of-mouth or random stumble-upons. Take matters into your own hands, actively put your business out there, and drive those leads to your website through content marketing.
Your audience is already online. It's now your responsibility to get in front of them with content that demonstrates your thought leadership, your understanding of their pains (or general needs), and your industry expertise.
A teaser from my latest...
When I said goodbye to my mother this morning, I didn’t realize it would be for the last time. Then again, I also didn’t realize she and Dad had placed an ad for me on Craigslist: ‘Free to a good home.’
