Trouble with parents~
Old crazy hags~

About the Author
I am from Arizona, I have four kids that I kind of like, depends on the day. I used to collect a lot of different things. Comics, baseball cards, precious stones, toys, movies, music, stuff like that. But this is what is a little weird about me. I didn’t like to read comics, I wasn’t a big baseball fan. I couldn’t tell you the difference between a sapphire and a ruby besides that their different colors. So why did I collect them? This is a bit embarrassing, because I thought I was going to get rich, by holding on to them… guess what, it didn’t work.

Before becoming an author I was a filmmaker. I made a couple of independent films and documentaries. I always believed that filmmaking was my greatest passion, but then I finally heeded my wife’s nagging and sat down to write a book. I haven’t made a movie or thought about filmmaking since. I have written two books and am in the process of writing a third. Death’s Academy is my second novel.

(A review copy was provided, however, all reviews are of my own opinion :)


  1. This sounds like a cute book! The guy's voice in the trailer reminded me a bit of Jim Dale's voice (he narrates the Harry Potter series).

    1. This book really is a FUN BOOK!
      The voice is GOOD!
