I realized two things early in life...
The first, I was gay.
The second, I love to write.

MY LOVE OF WRITING BEGAN

when I was just seven years old and, my third grade teacher assigned a book project to the class. While other students groaned about crafting a story from scratch, I was ecstatic. With some help (I was only seven), I came up with a cute story about a furry field mouse searching for a home.

Not only did I write the story (along with a dedication and bio page), I also (poorly) illustrated and designed the cover. The project took days, but it didn't matter because I loved every minute of it. After it was done, I held my book in my hands and, for the first time, realized I could bring ideas and thoughts to life.

Looking back, it was the most important piece I ever created.


Since then, writing has always been there for me. When things were bad in my life, I wrote. When things were good, I wrote. When I didn't know what the hell else to do, I wrote. I wrote for school, for work, for newspapers, for others and yes... for fun! Simply put, I love to write!

My true calling made itself known when I was seven, but life (as it does) got in the way. That was, until February 2017, when I published my first blog post declaring my writing aspirations to the world. Since then, my life has been filled with writing, blogging and traveling (to write, of course).

Writing Was Always There for Me...

In Journals

Where I wrote about how it felt growing up gay, closeted and alone with no one to turn to.

In Lists

To reference on the days depression returns and I live in a cloud of doubt and helplessness

In an iPod

Where I recorded (many) ideas for novels I aspire to bring to bookshelves.

In Scrivener

Where I officially began to take my writing seriously and (finally) wrote my first novel.

MY BATTLE WITH DEPRESSION

DEPRESSION

For me, coming out seemed easier than telling people I suffered with depression. Writing with depression is a daily struggle, but I've finally found the strength to talk about it.
