Tell us a little about your writing career.

Even as a child, writing has been a large part of my life. From short, pithy cartoon strips to seven-year old essays about doubt to my recently-published short story, I have always been a writer.

Who are your literary influences?

I really like 1920's literature by expatriate American writers like Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Anderson, etc. (Although Anderson was much older, I often lump him together with the Lost Generation writers, because they were being published simultaneously.) More recent authors such as Palahniuk and Foer are also mighty in my esteem.

What do you hope to gain from our monthly workshop?

I hail from Greenwood, fix houses, study English and French, and write stories.
