I make my living as a full-time writer having been the Lead Fiction Writer for Sony’s EverQuest Next as well as working for other gaming companies, won awards as a novelist, have written stage plays and musicals, comics and graphic novels, sold a movie script or three, and have even been dabbling in TV writing and animation with my Fiend Folly cartoon.
I’m also a teacher of Creative Writing, using my near fifteen years of experience to help writers understand this craft at a deeper level.
And people say I’m pretty good. For the past thirteen years I’ve been invited to teach Creative Writing all over the world. From San Diego Comic Con, to Gen Con in Indianapolis, all the way to being invited to teach at the very first Comic Con in Saudi Arabia! (What an adventure that was!)
Regardless of if you are an aspiring writer or have been in the craft for a while and are just looking for ways to improve your storytelling skills, you’ve come to the right place.
Here you will find a bunch of free material that will help you on your way. Handouts to the live classes I give at conventions and writing conferences, in-depth looks at popular movies and stories in my Brutal Breakdown blog series, My Schedule so you can come out and see me when I’m in your area, and other tidbits I hope will make your own journey as a writer more enjoyable.
And when you are ready for more, you can purchase my in-depth, online writing courses. These are similar to the classes I give live, but way more robust, as I have as much time as I need to delve into each topic.
I hope you find a wealth of knowledge to help you on this crazy journey, and I’m excited to be a part of your adventure.
