Why did I choose to write under this pen name?

as for the real me...

I struggled to understand my God-given strength of storytelling when I was a kid despite my wild imagination and creative soul. It wasn’t until I was a senior in college mere months away from graduation that I realized my deep desire to be an author. Then it took another decade or so of struggle to figure out how to bring that dream to life.

Now I want to help you: 
  • Skip the unnecessary struggles I went through
  • Discover that your imagination is a gift God wants to use now, not decades from now
  • Challenge you to think like an author and put creative writing strategies into action

Already conquered high school or college but still want to learn how to write a novel?  You are welcome here, too!
