I grew up in Alabama, and then I spent eight years in Mississippi before moving to Georgia to teach at a state college.
I have loved books for as long as I can remember, and my tastes are pretty widely varied: my favorite authors include Flannery O’Connor, J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, George R.R. Martin, Faulkner, Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Shakespeare, and John Donne. I especially love classical literature: Homer, Sophocles, and Euripides.
I also read a lot of comic books and graphic novels. Some of my favorite comic creators include Ed Brubaker, Jason Aaron, Kurt Buseik, Alex Ross, Frank Miller, and Mark Waid.
It’s hard to pin me down as a writer. I think of myself primarily as a science fiction and fantasy writer, but I have written literary fiction and philosophy as well:
Black Panther and Philosophy (forthcoming)
I also write microfiction on my Twitter page.
