Story
Tagline
Aural Storyteller. Worldbuilder.
Introduction
About Me
I am a writer, editor, and social media producer living at the edge of the Texas Hill Country. I enjoy writing near future science fiction and contemporary fantasy short stories and novellas for Young Adult and New Adult audiences. I also enjoy helping other writers create the strongest, most polished stories possible. I pride myself on being accidentally funny in my stories.

When I'm not building fictional worlds, I use my geeky powers for performing in science fiction and fantasy audiobooks (which I also produce) and audio dramas. I also blog about individual and networked learning and my creative fields at Genius on Hold. My favorite things include books, tea, fan fiction, my library cards, and my bulletin boards.

About My Webspaces
We are what we experience. It shapes who we are, what we do, and how we think. This is my experience. This is what I'm reading, seeing, thinking, and creating. This is where I've been and where I'm headed, for better or for worse. The topics may represent a diverse set of interests to you, but to me it's the tightly woven tapestry of my life. Following me won't change your life. It won't even change how you see the world. But hopefully, it will inspire you to think about and pay attention to what shapes and inspires you.


My Following Policy
(I never thought I'd need one of these, but some creative and business folk on Twitter and G+ apparently need manners or maybe a reminder that they aren't in kindergarten or high school anymore.)

My following policy is simple. I make posts that are interesting to me that I hope will be interesting to others, and I follow people who make interesting posts. I don't auto-follow, and I don't expect people to follow me just because I followed them.

I have zero tolerance for serial add/droppers and for those who engage in that behavior trying to build up their numbers. Those people just don't understand social media. 
Bragging rights
I have a small role in Valiant Comics' Archer & Armstrong audio drama, which was announced at their NYCC panel.

New blog series on how being a longtime writer helped me develop a better understanding of the production process as a new voice actor.

My high school and college both had a technology class requirement, and I chose to fulfill both by taking basic programming courses. Honestly, it seemed more fun than several weeks of having basic terminology explained to me. I took three classes total.…

Today is #WorldIPDay, and this year's focus is digital culture and creation.

Although he makes the classic context mistake with the "Information wants to be free" quote, Joseph Gordon Levitt does a great job talking about the need to value IP, regardless of its format in this video: https://www.hitrecord.org/records/2834987
World Intellectual Property Day is a yearly celebration of IP's role in stimulating innovation and creativity. Find out more about what's planned for 2016.

If you listen really closely, you'll find me hiding out in a little corner. Plus, it's fun. :)

Remember the movie Return to Oz? Well, now you can listen to me narrate the book it was largely based on. #audiobook

As the movie terrified me as a child, I consider this a minor achievement.

Before you see Through the Looking Glass when it releases later this month, you can listen to the original story. I attempt to read "Jabberwocky" backwards. It's fun. ;)

The other day, we talked about negative space in print and digital text and our need for visual breaks in order to process what we’re looking at. It’s no different with sound. You’ve probably noticed this if you’ve ever been at a concert or a sporting…

Yes, And isn't just for improv. In fact, it can make for a pretty awesome brainstorming session.

Recently, we looked at the Five Whys technique for developing an idea. This time, we’re going to look at another one that I’ve only had opportunity to play with in the last year: Yes, And. I was part of a team creating an alternate reality game for a…

I'm a little late to this party, but the Twist Fate Challenge looks like great fun! Check it out if you work with teen #writers!
Description: Twist Fate Challenge When you think about it, any hero could become a villain, and any villain, a hero. It wouldn't take much. A small change, a tiny twist of fate, a white suit or a red lightsaber, and things could be completely different. Twist Fate is a month-long challenge for ...
