Where are you from?
Born and raised in the north woods of Wisconsin. Now, I live in central New York.

What inspired you to pen your first novel?
A long time ago, I had a dream of a dark haired vampire, he came up to me in the dream and introduced himself. I have been trying to find away to give him a story for over ten years. Looks like it is finally coming around.

What about the horror genre interests you?
You can place your story in any time, or place and the horror will still come out. Horror is universal. Although, I admit my stories are closer to fantasy, with a bit of horror thrown in.

What about fantasy?
The strange thing is I was not a big reader of sword and sorcery type of fantasy when growing up. I was more into Sci-Fi. But then I discovered fantasy through Dungeons and Dragons. Then came my discovery of Terry Pratchett. I enjoyed the mis-mash of different genres. When we played our games we did the same thing.

Describe your books
Urban fantasy. They deal with fantasy and mythological creatures in the modern environment. It can be horrific. But I am more interested in how these beings and creatures have adapted to our modern life. How do they interact with humans? How do they move in a city full of people?
