I live in Charleston, SC now but was born in Washington, DC and raised in Northern Virginia. I attended George Washington University and George Mason, earning a B.A. in Journalism in 1992.
I started my career working in Public Relations for private corporations and government agencies, and worked as a photojournalist for the Fairfax Journal, Manassas Journal Messenger and Prince William Junction News.
Some of my favorite early gigs included running site PR for the very first Lollapalooza Tour in 1991, and interviewing Watergate mastermind G. Gordon Liddy.
After the publication of my first book in 1998, I became a full-time freelance writer. My articles and photos have appeared in over 30 publications ranging from Good Housekeeping Magazine to the Chicken Soup for the Soul books, tv show and podcasts. I've provided content to The History Channel, Sy-Fy, The Learning Channel, ABC News, Paramount Entertainment Group, Media General and many others.
My latest project is a fact-inspired horror novel set along Charleston's haunted shores.
