As a Montanan, I grew up kayaking, climbing, hunting, fishing and doing just about any other outdoor activity I could. As a youth, I did not expect that I’d one day become a novelist. I was diagnosed with dyslexia at a young age and struggled with a third grade reading comprehension through most of high school. It wasn’t until I started neurofeedback therapy that I was able to read and write at the same level as my peers. Before striving to become an author, my path as an avid whitewater kayaker and wildland firefighter lead me to a degree in Forestry at the University of Montana. It wasn’t until after college that I started writing fiction. Now, I’ve become a published author and uncovered my passion for being a fantasy writer. As I continue my career, I plan on producing unique worlds and engaging characters that my readers will love. Though I don’t kayak off 90-foot waterfalls or run class-V whitewater anymore, I have plenty of personal experiences that I use to authenticate my style of writing.
