Overview

Science fiction, adventures, and thrillers are my passion. From adult fiction to middle grade, I've written, developed, and edited in all areas. I've worked with HaprerCollins, Simon & Schuster UK, and St. Martin's Press and have published international bestsellers.

I've developed screenplays with aspiring screenwriters and professionals alike, such as adapting Arthur C. Clarke's Rendezvous with Rama with Morgan Freeman.

Since 2013 I have edited, designed, and published over 200 audit reports for the State of Colorado on a diverse range of issues (see covers below). Any of these reports can be downloaded at the Colorado Office of the State Auditor website.

I have been on the faculty of the Big Sur of The Rockies writing workshops, moderated writing and STEM panels at Denver Comic Con, and have been a guest speaker at the Edinburgh International Book Festival.

I'm a member of the SFWA, SCBWI, ITW, and WGA.

Feel free to contact me about your needs and how I can help you take your writing to the next level.
