I am an ER doctor practicing in St. Louis, Missouri, where I live with my beautiful wife and our two rambunctious children.  I was born in Birmingham, Alabama where I grew up loving to read.  My passion for books continued through my college career at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, and traveled with me back to Alabama where I attended the University of Alabama School of Medicine.  I moved to St. Louis for residency training, met my wife, and fell in love with both her and the city itself.  I have been practicing emergency medicine for over a decade and love helping people every day, but turned to writing as a creative outlet.


A self-professed nerd, I've long enjoyed everything science fiction, from books to TV and movies.  I'm also a huge fan of great mysteries and thrillers, and I'm a sucker for a surprising plot twist.  I write the kinds of books that I would want to read, reflecting a deep-seated curiosity about what motivates people to do the things they do.


When I'm not busy writing and taking care of patients, I love to run, play with my children, and spend quiet time watching TV with my wife.  If I can only figure out how to do all three things at once, I'll finally have it made.
