When I was in highschool and realized that I had a talent for writing, I erronously thought that the few choices open to me included novel writing, journalism, or writing textbooks.
Boy was I wrong.
In the years since, I've discovered that writing is a craft that can be applied to many, MANY different pursuits. And trust me, you don't even want to know what I've applied my craft to over the years.
Somewhere in the middle, I realized that I had a passion for interactive media, and that it melded well with how I thought as a writer. I love books (I always will), but nothing compares to the thrill of putting technology together with good storytelling.
That being said, you'll notice that my list of favourite books and authors ranges from poetry to fiction to drama to comic books...that's not a mistake. I am a bit of a geek and I revel in geek culture.
Which might explain why I'm working as a writer for a video game company.
I'm a little reluctant to post my influences, as they would probably make most literary fans cry.
