I started writing short stories when I was twelve and have continued to do so ever since. I also like reading books; my favorite subjects are historical and historical fiction. Some of my favorite authors are: G. A. Henty, Gilbert Morris, Howard Pyle, Aurthur Conan Doyle, Jan Karon, and Beth Wiseman.

My favorite book is the Bible. I was saved when I was twelve and this has had a huge impact on my writing and my life.

My favorite quote is: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

I am eighteen years old, and I live on a ten acre farm with the rest of my family. We have cows, goats, sheep, chickens, turkeys, a horse, a dog, and cats. We also grow hay for the animals, so I spend most of my summers working on machinery and cutting, baling, and stacking hay.

If you notice any spelling errors or whatnot in my stories, it is likely that my brothers were horsing around right behind me, distracting me, or trying to read what I was writing over my shoulder.

I also enjoy playing and writing music; I play the piano, guitar, fiddle, Irish tin whistle, and flute. Look for references to songs and instruments in my stories.

Current Project

Currently I am expanding a short story I wrote in 2009 to a novel. It is based in 13th century Wales, being a book following "The Adventures of Cledwyn". Although I now realize that I need a sizable book between the two to connect them. I will attempt to get the novel completed this year.
