I'm a deaf-blind writer. In high school, I wrote a short story about talking houses that earned me a first-place finish where I won a pocket dictionary. Later I wrote a conspiracy novel about a secret formula hidden inside of Rubik's cube. The novel went nowhere but only whetted my appetite to write more. At Gallaudet, I churned out countless short stories of horror and science fiction for the University newspaper, "The Buff and Blue." I went on to win the University's Mac Dougall Creative writing competition and the Lillian Gourley Rakon Creative Writing Awards. Taking a stab at screenwriting while in college, my first script, "Wrath of the Dragon," was a finalist at the 1988 Nissan Focus Screenplay competition sponsored by Columbia Pictures. My screenplay, "The Alien Diaries" was a finalist during Amazon's monthly screenwriting competition.
I love reading Science Fiction and I'm a sucker for a good Time Travel story. I will often veer off into Michael Critcheron territory or a Dirk Pitt themed action-adventure that blends history with facts and a great plot. Also, think Ken Follet as "The Pillars of the Earth" is one of my favorite reads. Don't be shy about dropping a follow - cuz I follow back!
Random stuff about me: I'm fluent in ASL and I have Cochlear Implants. Being deaf-blind, I use a red/white cane to get around.
