About Me


Hi all!

I am a new writer living in Alamosa CO. I moved here from Denver from Washington DC. My niche is high fantasy in a world called Astrivia (set in 16th century colonial America). I used to read a lot of fantasy but got sick of the same mythology and need to get back into reading. I set my series in colonial america because it was always my favorite time period, even when I was in High School (back East).


I love Alamosa! It is such a great town and I am very happy to be living here. I am a teacher for RMCAD (in Denver) in their new masters program in instructional design and technology (IDT). I have a PhD from UNCO and have been writing research articles for several years. My BA is in English from Virginia Tech.


Astrivia is not something off-the-cuff. I have worked in the world of Astrivia for nearly 20 years now and my first novel about it, The Ecclesia, is available on Amazon only at the moment so I can take advantage of a special sales deal with them. Paperback and iBooks in October 2012!

Welcome, Samuel! Very excited to talk writing and stuff with you. My brother just graduated from RMCAD. Such a small world.
