By day I’m a tech writer, working to support my fiction writing habit. My first published novel, The Benefactor, was released on November 13, 2009. I’m currently working on a psychological thriller that was conceived in the 2009 NaNoWriMo Event. I’m experiencing some premature labor pains on that one and look forward to giving birth to it in the near future. While I wish the gestation period for this new book fell in the human range, it’s looking like it’ll be more in line with the African elephant.
