I am an avid reader, author, photographer, and urban explorer with an interest in all things dark and decrepit. Every place has a tale to tell, and a unique character that can only be found in the beauty of its ruins. My short fiction has been published in several magazines, and I am currently at work on two novels - one a tale of supernatural horror, and the other a tale of psychological horror. When not writing, I'll read just about anything I can get my hands on, although I'm naturally drawn to genre fiction (fantasy, horror, and science fiction). When I'm not reading or writing, I'm usually stalking around abandoned, hard-to-find places, camera in hand, looking for that unique perspective not shared by another soul for decades . . . or even centuries. http://beauty-in-ruins.blogspot.com/
