Writing is my addiction, ink is my drug. Fantasy novelist and poet, I veer toward the quirky, the edgy, the sometimes peculiar themes. Raised in the Hudson Valley area of New York, I grew up surrounded by Sleepy Hollow legends and the whispers of Indian lore in the Catskill Mountains. Adulthood has not dampened those inspirations. Parents who encouraged reading and writing and Saturday morning horror movies contributed to my habit and I would have it no other way. My novel "Vykup-A Tale of the Koldun" to be released in 2018.
