I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and work in web design and graphics. I minored in music and play several instruments, including guitar. I'm experienced in technical editing and worked with an adult literacy program for several years. A fan of all things science fiction, my interests range from books and movies to music and games. I'm the founder of the Insecure Writer's Support Group and a co-host of the A to Z Challenge from 2011-2013. My first book, CassaStar, was released on October 19, 2010, and the sequel, CassaFire, was released February 28, 2012. Both books are Amazon Best Sellers. The third in the series, CassaStorm, will be released on September 17, 2013. I live in the Carolinas with my wife.
