I’ve always been passionate about storytelling and impressed by the influence it has on people and the decisions they make in life. I love engaging with the projects I work on, diving headfirst into the research, investigation, and production of stories I feel are worth writing about. I am a curious and proactive Author, interested in preserving the foundations of my stories by adapting them to modern themes and trends.

Aaron Lowery was my first best friend who tragically died in an accident at the age of nine. We were best friends at a time of racial inequality and civil unrest. Our relationship was taboo because of the color of our skin. This book is about the impact Aaron had on my life and how that friendship was a part of God's master plan. Although his life was a vapor, his impact drove some of the major decisions that shaped my life. Hope you enjoy!

Check out my latest published book. After spending countless hours working up to its release, I’m proud to announce that it’s finally ready. In this new book, I dive into the story of two men, one an aristocrat plantation owner's son, the other a dirt farmer's son in 1800's Alabama. It's about their time as confederate soldiers, their friendship through the turmoil of the southern reconstruction and their roles as politicians. The story concludes with the untimely murder of one and the investigation by his friend. Hope you enjoy!
