STORYTELLING INTEREST

My primary interest is in creating new stories, or twisting ancient stories and myths until they become something new and different. As a writer, I am fascinated by the countless ways in which a plot can change with the addition or removal of a few small details. The best stories, in my opinion, draw on the familiar: the beliefs and culture of our society, the stories we loved as children, the events of the world today, and so on.


MISCELLANEOUS INFORMATION

I enjoy a number of hobbies in addition to writing, including digital photography, blogging, and vegetarian cooking. I am passionate about history, art, and literature, and love to tour museums and travel whenever possible.
