Writer Bio

I grew up in Long Beach, California. Graduated from Clarion in 2011. After living in New York City, I moved back to Southern California, and currently work in the video game industry as a sound designer and music composer.

Writing Style

Speculative Fiction

Writing Goal

I want to finish the final draft of my horror novel I started a long time ago. I finished the last draft in 2014 in New York City. I began the final draft in 2017, and would like to have a complete the final draft before Clarion ends. So I'm using the write-a-thon as my deadline! My life is *really* busy ATM, so finishing this is going to be intense. But I'm excited, and this novel means the world to me. It's a ghost story. But instead of a person, the ghost is a book. It's called, "The Forever Love"...

Fundraising Goal

I would love to raise $100.

60000 words written
