About the Author

Hey, I’m Christian, and I appreciate you stopping by.

I loved writing the first book in The Catharsis Awakening, Shadows of Matthew. It’s a story that tumbled around inside of me for at least 10 years before I published the first book. Now, the series is in full swing with more installments to come.

More than a site of “Hey, here’s my books,” this is a place where I share the writing process through the lens of a beginning writer to a published author. In the beginning, I had no clue what I was doing.

I’ve learned a ton since I first started writing this series. Seems like I have aspiring writers ask me all the time how they can get started writing their own stories; usually stories that have been gnawing at them for years. I tell ’em, “Just start.” Little more to it than that, but seriously, just starting is half the battle when it comes to writing.

Hopefully this site will shed some light and provide some useful info for those of you who are just starting out. If you’re an old salt, please stick around; I hope to learn a few things from you!

It’s pretty amazing what goes into publishing a book: from the opening line of the rough draft, through the editing process, to the point where you hold a print copy of your hard work.

Well, a little bit about myself, without sounding like a cheesy resume, I’m a Denver native.

I served in the Marines after high school. Afterward, I went to work in the electronics industry. I wound up starting two two businesses and made a good go of them but got burned out with the industry. So, I decided to go into law enforcement. I’ve always been an adrenalin junkie and LE was a good fit for me.

I’m retired now and live in a small town on the western slope of Colorado.

I’m pretty blessed with an awesome life.

Thanks for joining in here.
