Ever since I was 11 years old I knew I wanted to be a writer. I wrote my first news story for my middle school paper. It was our final project of the semester and it got me hooked.

So far most of the work I've published has been in the Lincoln High School Statesman, the South Dakota State University Collegian or on the KDLT News website.

I'm still working in TV news as an assignment editor at the ABC affiliate in Charlotte, North Carolina, but recently I've been working on some creative writing pieces. I'm really anxious to see what happens with those.

I post several times on week oh Batson's Blog. Until I finish some pieces, my blog is the best place to see new writing material.
