Science fiction was the DNA of my imagination through my childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. Now I am ready to share my imagination with the world.

I'm a novelist specializing in science fiction, fantasy, and short horror fiction. I write about protagonists that are members of the LGBTQI+ community and focus on depicting these characters in a positive or affirming representation. As a gay man and a clinical psychologist in the federal prison system for over twenty-seven years, I use my personal and clinical experiences to enrich my characters, showing the human psyche's struggles, triumphs, and determination to thrive. I'm currently working on my first novel. Subscribe to my newsletter below and I will send you periodic short stories or a chapter in addition to my bi-weekly writer newsletter.

My stories engaged readers and offers them a unique escape to wherever they'd like. These stories involve captivating characters, gripping plotlines, engaging settings, and topics that will make readers think. Using my creative style and writing skill, I hope to delight readers of all ages!

I'm an avid sports fan (WVU Mountaineers, Atlanta Braves, Sacramento Kings) and a member of California's longest-running LGBTQI+ bowling league. I live outside Sacramento, CA, with my husband, Doug, and two dogs, Trouble and Xena.
