I write small intimate short stories that would be good for low budget filmmakers, folkloric tales that would be great animation, mainstream and novellas that would be good for a feature length movies, and epic fantasy which would make a good series. I'm primarily a novelist and short story writer. I also write Christian nonfiction. Some of my fiction is religious, some is not. One day i may write a script but i'd rather just provide stories for screenwriters. I have worked as an editor and if anyone needs any help in writing stories, i'll be happy to give you freely of my time and expertise.
