I grew up surrounded by pine trees, tobacco fields, bluegrass music, and my seven siblings. My writing is very much fueled by my love for what's around me, and for the history behind it, and I love books that have have such an inbred depth that you can feel the history standing behind every word. I love character-driven books; not at the expense of plot, but in aid of it.
My desire is to do everything for the glory of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I'm still a work in progress.

"Hew down the bridge, Sir Consul,
With all the speed ye may;
I, with two more to help me,
Will hold the foe in play.
In yon straight path a thousand
May well be stopped by three:
Now who will stand on either hand,
And keep the bridge with me?"
-Horatius at the Bridge, Thomas Babington Macauley
