About Me

* Note: I've been blocking chapters of Sakura no Yugen. The first are still viewable, but if you want to read more, send me a message and I will temporarily republish them for you

I started drawing comics when I was about four or five (not much better than dinosaur stick figures). Over time I found I couldn’t express enough through just drawing and was always adding more and more text, and so I started writing stories in my teens. I stopped for a few years, thinking writing was maybe foolish, and that I’d be an artist, or psychologist, or a musician.

It was about fourteen years ago that I went up to camp in Sequoia forest in the Sierra Nevada, and one morning went to watch the sunrise over waterfalls. I got hit by a sudden inspiration that has never left me since, and while sitting there started jotting down notes for a story.

This last decade and then some has been an incredible journey of learning. Except for most of the poems, the things that I write have been largely inspired by dreams. The book project that was and still might be the most important to me is called “The War of Creation”, comprised of three books ; “The Son of the Forest and the Daughter of the Sky”, “The Trumpets of Heaven”, and “The Stairway to the Stars”. I worked on it for about six years, before deciding to put it on the back burner and return to it when I’ve improved as a writer and have found some of the answers I’m looking for in life.

The next book I started on was a space saga inspired almost wholly from a dream. It was supposed to be shorter. I worked on it for about two years and it turned into two books, and though its one chaotic draft in, it still needs a lot of work. Then I decided I just wanted to finish something!!! While half asleep on the couch I got a moment of inspiration that turned into the first big book I finished, just a few years ago. It's called "Dark Rider - The Desolations. It took nearly four years to write but still needs to be polished up. Dark Rider is mainly about fear and going through what was by far the darkest and most difficult time of my life. Subconscious symbolism is what I believe to be the strongest aspect of all my stories, but, I know that I really need to continue to improve as a writer if I want to bring them to life.

There is one more project, "Sakura Dream", titled here as Sakura no Yume. It is a story set in a Japanese feudal age, and inspired by a dream more than anything else I've written. I just finished the first draft a few months ago after two years of work. It is my proudest accomplishment thus far. I am currently in the phase of editing it, as well as working on some short stories I plan to self-publish or possibly query. The editing is maybe the most enjoyable phase.

Before I die I hope to write between 20 - 25 books. At the pace I'm going I'll be incredibly old by then

Its value is in the sentiment.

It can be quite a chore to research for one's writing. First having to read lots of westerns, and Native American information for the Black Phoenix, and now having to investigate so much about ancient feudal Japan for words and customs in Sakura Dream. And my next project I've already done a draft for is in outer space with tons of technology!!!
