I am an author

I’m an author, journalist, and radio show host. I interview authors, artists, and entertainers. I have been a freelance journalist for the Savannah Morning News since 2014. I began self-publishing horror fiction in 2018, and have one short story published with Crone Girls Press.
I founded The Savannah Quill May 13, 2016. The Savannah Quill connects writers and readers to promote literacy. With that, I have hosted several conventions, which were not a great turn out, and changed the format last year to Savannah Authors Expo. We had an incredible time with a smaller and more intimate venue.
I started Books and Brews Savannah in November 2018 as a charitable event to raise funds for the Ronald McDonald Charities of the Coastal Empire. Partnering with local authors and SouthBound Brewing Company, we raised $500 last year for the House.
This year I started Valhalla Books as my publishing imprint of The Savannah Quill Publishing House as a way to separate the non-profit events from the for-profit publishing industry. Our first horror anthology is called The Devil’s Due, where nothing is ever as it seems. I rescheduled the release to this fall in October.
As a fiction author, my goal is to become financially independent with my work. I am working diligently to restructure my professional habits as well as my work habits with my writing.

    I live outside of Columbus, GA now, but I used to live in Savannah. It is still my favorite. city. I look forward to getting back when this is over and checking out the new River Walk district, it looks great in the pictures. Even writing this now makes me miss that cool evening breeze along the river.
