Dream Catcher


Merry Christmas!

Last year, to celebrate the holiday season, I shared the first story I’d ever written: The Horse Who Lost His Horseshoe. This year seemed appropriate to share the first poem I ever published. “Dream Catcher” was featured in the 2005 edition of Anthology of Poetry by Young Americans. It was not my last poem to be published in this anthology.

As a child, I collected dream catchers. They lined both of my bedroom windows and dangled between my bedposts, my “mazes in the air.” I loved finding unique ones to add to the collection, but one of my favorites was a hand-made dream catcher carefully crafted by my best friend at the time.



Sweet dreams to all still waiting for Santa. May your dreams be filled with Christmas lights, jingle bells, and “beautiful ice crystals dancing in winter.”

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 an industry expert with decades of experience or a high-profile CEO 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.
