What got you into writing?
"Like many teens, I was depressed and had severe anxiety that came to light when I was around fifteen. I was a musician since age eleven, so when I needed an outlet for my depression, I started writing music and song lyrics. I presented them to my high school music teacher who told me I had amazing talent. When not writing music, I wrote poetry. My poems were dark and sad and pointed at my life in school, being bullied for being different. I was a goth kid living in a small rural town where all the other kids looked the same and were into the same things.
When I was thirty, I started writing horror fiction. My self-published novel, Saving Anna, was based on a dream I'd had years prior. After that, I wrote nonfiction in the field of psychology. It was a few years later I started on my current fantasy series where I could express my passion for medieval history mixed with my love of getting lost in the fantasy realm."
