To imagine is to create. To create is to see the beauty in chaos, to form an idea from reality, and to craft something tangible from thought. To bring life. As I imagine, so shall it be.
• I’ve taken a step back from editing this year. I’m still editing a few novels at the moment, but when these are finished, I won’t be taking on any new clients for a while. It’s time to focus on my writing. (After all, that’s why you’re here, isn’t it?)
• I’ve entered my short story Blank Space into the Chicago Tribune’s Nelson Algren Literary Contest. I don’t enter contests often, so I figured I should at least try. Winners are announced in June/July, so I’ll let you know in a few months whether or not I placed. If not, I’ll have the cover finished up for an August release. 🙂
• I still have a lot to write, but I’ve officially begun compiling poems for To Be Honest, an in-progress collection of some of my best poems along with many new ones.
• I’m halfway through recategorizing my blog posts so you can find what you’re looking for easier. My dream journal is also being merged into the fold, so every other week you can read about a crazy dream that inspired me to write (as they all do). 🙂

If you ever need a story, advice, or just a friend, you’ve come to the right place. Please help yourself to my website. Look around, read some stories, pick up a few tips, or check out my literary services. Naturally, I encourage you to take a look at my books and see if there are any you’re interested in. But most of all, I just want to say thank you for visiting. Support for an author means so much more than buying a book. The fact that you visited my site in itself is more support than I could ask for, and I appreciate it.
Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy your time here.
