When I was in the fourth grade, I walked into a wardrobe and never came out again.
That was the year I first read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the year I wrote my first novel, and the year my mother told me I should be a writer. I never got over any of it — I’ve been inventing worlds and characters and stories ever since.
Somehow, in the midst of all this magic, I’ve managed to stumble my way through a 20-year career as a professional writer and editor that’s included everything from content marketing to magazine publishing to game design and back again. I’ve learned that no matter what you’re writing, a good story is essential, and I’ve found my passion learning what makes a story good.
- Always try to be better than my nature.
- Assume best intentions.
- Be honest, but also be kind.
- Always be making something.
- Unicorns are real, and they don’t poop rainbows.
