I am a proud husband, stay-at-home dad, and writer who lives in Vancouver, Washington. When I am not running kids, doing laundry, or making dinner, I can usually be found writing at the local library. When I’m not writing my family and I enjoy gardening, and playing D&D 5e.

In the fall of 2011, I wrote the number one non-fiction Amazon bestseller How to Manage Your Money When You Don’t Have Any. This book of basic financial advice has served over 80,000 families. In 2015, it got a thorough edit, and I released a workbook to compliment the book.

However, most of my efforts now go into creating fiction. I love space science and believe in a future in which humanity greens up the galaxy. So, much of my work has gone into creating the Pax Imperium, my science fiction universe. There are three novels in that universe, and each has been reviewed very positively. After looking at one of my books author Jack McDevitt once told a friend of mine that I have a bright future in science fiction. And while I think I would write stories even if I couldn’t publish them, I’m so grateful for every positive word and to be able to do what I love while entertaining others at the same time.
