April is one of the most unpredictable months here in Indiana. When Hoosiers kid about having the A/C running one day and the heat running the next… it’s no joke. This month, we’ve had sweltering days, frigid days, temperate days, rain, sun, thunderstorms, fog, and snow. Just another typical spring here in the Midwest.
While those ever-changing conditions may leave some locals daydreaming about moving someplace more temperate and predictable, I was in paradise trekking around with my camera and capture the essence spring—beads of raindrops sitting like jewels on delicate tulip petals; snow-encrusted samaras bowing on the red maple branches; bees flitting from crocus to crocus in the sunshine. Each day offered a new and beautiful glimpse at this fleeting season.

I'm an award-winning fantasy author, artist, and photographer from La Porte, Indiana. My poetry, short fiction, and memoir works have been featured in various anthologies and journals since 2005, and several of my poems are available in the Indiana Poetry Archives. The first two novels in my Chronicles of Avilésor: War of the Realms series both received the Literary Titan Gold Book Award in 2020.
After working as a freelance writer for a time, I was shocked by how many website articles are actually written by paid "ghost writers" but credited to a different author. It was a jolt seeing my articles presented under the name of a high-profile CEO or an industry expert with decades of experience when in reality, I had none of those credentials. Just a talent for writing and the time to research topics. Ghost writing is perfectly legal and a VERY common practice.
You won't find that here on my website. I do not and never will pay a ghost writer, then slap my name on their work as if I'd written it. This website is 100% authentic. No outsourcing. No ghost writing. No AI-generated content. It's just me... as it should be.
