He has years of experience in blogging and professional writing. He is also a seasoned fiction writer, a recipient of the Montana Prize in Fiction, and the author of three books: In the Season of Blood & Gold (Press 53, 2014), Fallen Land (St. Martin’s Press, 2016), and The River of Kings (St. Martin’s Press, 2017).
