I’ve always been an avid (dare I say: OBSESSED) reader, and started writing fiction somewhere around 5th or 6th grade. I read approximately 3 or 4 books a month, so new material is always a must!

I’ve written for a long time now, although the novel I started in high school has never gotten past the first draft stage. Over the last four years, I’ve fallen out of the habit of writing and I’m looking to ramp that up again.

I’m going to insert a shameless plug for my father. Jim Laughter and Victor J. Bretthauer recently published Escape to Destiny, and his book (and oncoming series) is available on!

Music You Should Try:
The Dears, No Cities Left
Sia, lots of albums…great voice.
