I was born in Roseburg, Oregon in 1974. I have always been a fan of fiction -mostly thrillers and suspense, but had never considered writing a novel in the genre. I like to write, and have always found a way to do it in some capacity, but until recently, that capacity had mostly been blog posts and humorous short stories. At my mother’s urging, I started writing In the Shadow of Angels 2014. When it received favorable feedback from friends and family alike, I made the decision to publish it in March 2015 to see if there might be a market for it.
