Hello, and welcome. Let me introduce myself...
I'm a writer of dark, literary fiction and poetry. 
I was born in Maryland, but at a young age moved with my family to the Tampa Bay area of Florida, where I developed an afinity for all things macabre and discovered all too quickly that summertime is best spent indoors. I've also lived in Los Angeles, California off and on over the years, and consider it my second home. Perhaps one day you'll find me living somewhere in the Hollywood Hills, or in an old haunted house in Savannah, Georgia, a city I fell in love with some years ago and frequent often.
I studied Creative Writing at St Petersburg College, and I am currently pursuing my B.A. in Creative Writing at Southern New Hampshire University. When I'm not writing, I can occasionally be found lurking in the shadows of The Castle and other haunts in Ybor City, or in the comforting aisles of the local bookstore. 
My influences include Bret Easton Ellis, Charles Bukowski, Jerry Stahl, Jay McInerney, and Joe McGinniss Jr. I've written a screenplay and numerous short stories and poetry, and I'm currently hard at work on my first novel.

"Sometimes writing can take you to such dark places it can be nearly impossible to come back from; a part of you is left there, in the words you've bled onto paper, in the emotions you've let loose upon the page, and eventually, the world."                                                                              - D.
