I'm a native Portlandian, a husband, a father of three, and a self-taught author and literary critic. My ultimate goal is to write in the epic genre, both novels and the more traditional epic poem. Here I'll be sharing my progress toward that goal, and all the shorter works which come along the way.

My hope is that you'll find something of interest, and I want to thank you and all my supporters thus far for your generosity and companionship. I couldn't do what I do without you.

You'll get early access to each article as it's completed

Articles may be essays, reviews, poems (or stanzas for longer poems), flash fiction, short stories, or chapters for books and novels.


Patrons will also get to see previews of articles, guest posts, and more!


My current goal is to release one article every two weeks. I hope you enjoy them!
