I became interested in reading as a young man, looking for worlds to explore without even passing my front door. Soon after I began reading, I began writing; the two went hand in hand. After writing many stories, I decided that I wanted to create something different, something special. Using inspiration from some of my favorite authors, I wrote The Castle Valdaine. With modern technology, I can write the story as a series of novellas, unfolding episodically, without the hassle of finding a publisher to work with me.
