About Me
*Left* That's my awesome, and lovely fiancé right there! I rock a good scruff, and I have a fine array of expletives, but I don't really use those in writing. I have a very busy career, traveling the world, and working my butt off. I'm a proud parent, and a husband in training. I devote myself to my job, my hobbies, and my household. I don't believe anything is worth doing if you don't give it 100 percent of your attention.
Type of Writer
I tend to be overcritical of my work, but I'm methodical, and always motivated to accept nothing but my very best.
Writing Style
I've been told it's vivid and gloomy. I've spent a long time with 3rd Person Limited and have started working 1st person
I love books! I also write and record music, draw, paint, and I've recently picked up the hobbies of woodworking and robotics. Yeah, I have a lot of hobbies :P

Favorite Quote
So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. -John Keating
