Poetry * short stories * lyrics * novels


I’m a creative writer living in the Central Coast of California. I fell in love with words as a child listening to folk songs and the rockers of the 60’s. My favorites included Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez.

As I got older, I came to appreciate the novel and marveled at the magic escape a book could be. Some of my favorite authors are Anne Rice, Donna Tartt, Nick Cave, Vladimir Nabokov. 

I earned a BA in Literature from California Poly Technique with an emphasis on creative writing. 

I’m currently working on my first magical realism novel which delves into the mysteries of violin maker Stradivarius.

In support of my book, I plan to keep active on this blog. I welcome all sorts of feedback and reaction. I have a pretty thick skin.

Please follow me.
