Author has written 29 stories for Silmarillion, Lord of the Rings, and Downton Abbey.

I'm an engineer specializing in game theory and data analysis. When I write, it's in Python.

I picked up a pen for the first time in April 2011. and learned the craft of writing from the 'how to' books. I recently joined a Writer's Group that meets at the local library, where the others are merciless about 'show not tell' and having good hooks at the end of chapters.

Special thanks to my two copy editors, Marlene and Rachel. It's a rare middle-school student who speaks Sindarin fluently.
