Biography

I am an overeducated stay-at-home dad to two wonderful sons. I have a BA in Religion and English Writing and an MA in Education. I worked briefly as a high school English teacher before we opted to keep me home when my second son was born in 2010. As a writer, I consider C.S. Lewis, Lewis Carroll, Douglas Adams, and Neil Gaiman my strongest influences. I enjoy multi-layered plots, clever wordplay, and bad jokes.
