Inspiration to tell stories comes to me in various ways.

Reading dozens of books a year sparks new ideas.

Waking up from a life-changing dream gets the creative juices flowing.

People watching influences characters.

Basically, everything I perceive can contribute to a story idea.

My natural inclinations to write should have been enough to convince me this is the career I am meant to chase, but the path to pursue storytelling hit a few speed bumps.

For nearly three years, I spent time in the corporate world in two different roles. At times it was enjoyable, but most of the time, I was unhappy.

Fate confirmed it wasn’t right when I was laid off in July 2020.

To the surprise of many, including myself, I felt rejuvenated.

Liberated from a job I didn’t care for, I now had clarity as to what I was meant to do.

I wrote The Abandoned, my debut novel, to encourage my readers to think about our world from another perspective. If they finish it and are able to do this, I will have accomplished my goal.

The Impoverished Wealth short story series is also available here for $0.99 a story, and can be previewed for free here.

In addition to reading my published work, subscribing to my weekly newsletter gets you free microfiction stories in your inbox!

Countless people, how-to books, and websites have told me becoming a published author is difficult, but if I had let that discourage me, I wouldn’t be capable of accomplishing anything worthwhile.

Besides, would writing really be my passion if I allowed outsiders to dictate what I’m going to do?
