"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet"

Let's build a world. Explore what we believe by writing. In many ways my characters’ experiences with fate, destiny and free-will mirror my own. What is up to us and what isn’t? It’s one of the great questions of the human experience, I think. But no matter what is for us to control, we must own the identity. You’re a writer if you write. Period. Writing is a lovely way to spend one’s time. Enjoy it. And I hope you enjoy my writing here.

Summer reads!

Hey Guys,

Summer is almost over.. sniff, sniff...and I am spending some time at the beach right now. It has been the most amazing summer. I published my first book, saw my best friend get married, took a lot of trips, and made smores. Well, my friend made them. I supervised.

What have you guys been up to? Tell me!
