I am an author, editor, screenwriter, and former lawyer who has worked on two #1 movies and several New York Times best-selling novels. Though my fascination with narrative was apparent from an early age, it wasn’t until my studies at Princeton that my career path began to take shape.

Preferring Dumbo to Dostoyevsky, my senior thesis focused on Walt Disney’s obsession with animated storytelling—and spurred my own interests in fiction as a livelihood. After nearly a decade in Hollywood, I returned to my rural Pennsylvania roots to complete my first novel, THE VIKING HOARD.

When I'm not writing, I can usually be found in the woods with my dog, watching movies with my family and friends, or at my computer researching the latest and greatest places to scuba dive.
