I am a writer originally from Wisconsin now living in Los Angeles, CA.

I like stories about robots, mythology, and romance-- sometimes all at once.
I am currently working on plays, screenplays, novels, and audiodrama.

Plays

  • The Birthing Pit
    John and Castella flee a mysterious pestilence at the end of the American Revolutionary War, sailing home to Rhode Island from the Caribbean. But when the farmer Atabei kills their ship’s captain during what might be a supernatural storm, tragedy stalks all three.
  • The Maimed King
    Joseph and Evelake arrive on the shores of England, planning to secret the Holy Grail inland to the town of Glastonbury. The brigand tracking them is the least of Evelake’s perils as he begins to doubt the foundation of his new Christian faith.
  • Waiting to Die in a Tent, A Few Thoughts on Valhalla
    The old viking warrior Einarr and his young friend Mikel battle to protect their distant city of Reidun. When Einarr is mortally wounded, Mikel sets out to locate Einarr’s estranged daughter Kára for a final father-daughter reunion. But before they can return, a mysterious figure finds Einarr alone-- and about to breathe his last.
