Born in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, I moved to Pennsylvania when I was three. I went to school at Northwestern, in a small town called Albion. At a young age, I had incorporated a many hobbies into my life, which made it very difficult for my parents to ever really ground me for messing up in their eyes. They could take away my toys, my computer, my video games, and my time with my friends, but they couldn't take my writing or imagination, so if I were to get grounded from one thing, I would switch my attention to another one. I've always enjoyed writing very much. With my free time in school, I created one comic series and various stories. Some still have yet to be finished, but as I continue through this life, I am continually thinking of new ideas for short stories, novels, and comics.
Note to the readers:
There are times when we all want to escape our lives for one reason or another. Some people do it by working themselves to the extreme, some by dreaming in their beds no matter the time of day, and some by keeping their minds in a perpetual state of fantasy that they themselves or someone else has created for them. Sometimes reality seems a bit more like fantasy, you find yourself wondering, "How could reality be real?" Maybe it's not. Sometimes that fantasy is our reality. I invite you into one of my fantasies. Enter a realm where the normality of real life washes away to become something much greater, where unconditional love becomes the driving force behind the reason for putting yourself in terrible danger. Enter into one of my escapes from reality.
