Who Am I?

Hi there! I’m JT. Welcome to my About Me. I’m new to the world of “professional” writing, but I’ve had a secret joy for it for quite some time. I didn’t pay much attention to my writing until 2009, where I was given a writing assignment as a form of punishment. Isn’t the world funny? That writing assignment was very rewarding, and I’ve been more involved with writing ever since.

Previously, I was a military helicopter pilot. I can still fly if I so choose, but that’s not really where my interests are. Yes, flying can be very rewarding, and it is an adventure in itself. But I’ve become smitten with making my own adventures. When you fly, there are rules; when you write, there are not. Sure, there are widely accepted writing practices, but that’s really just so readers can absorb the story as told by the writer. By using those writing practices, you’re speaking the language that everyone else is using, thus allowing the reader to hear what the writer has to say.

I know that my language is a bit different and is still changing. Some of my earlier stories are rougher than others, but the subsequent ones are continuing to grow and evolve, allowing more of my version of the story to be absorbed by you, the reader. I appreciate your patience and understanding in this. And it is my earnestly belief that the stories that come out the back side of this “Cocoon Phase,” will be well worth the wait. 🙂

As of today (12/23/22), I am continuing to write, revise and rewrite on my Redux Riding Hood story. The title has changed since I began, but you will still find RRH on the cover of the posted serial. This story has turned out to be something of a cocoon itself, as I had no idea it was going to be something other than a fun, beat-’em-up type story. It has become very, very different from what I expected it to be, and I think people will be pleasantly surprised.

Additionally, I suppose it’s worth mentioning that I’m an INFP, so you can expect richly developed characters…characters being exactly what I think people will be most enthralled with regarding the Redux Riding Hood story. In fact, most of my projects are character driven but even when they aren’t, I still focus on the character arcs and the emotional landscape of whatever I’m writing. I have a lot of stories in the works, and I can’t wait for you to meet some of the characters. Happy reading!


Any and all encouragement is always welcome. My aim is and has always been to write ‘Stories Worth Reading.’ You may come across this from time to time. If you enjoy the stories I share, feel free to express this by hanging out in my social sphere. If my stories aren’t for you, that’s ok too. I wish you success in finding whatever stories your heart yearns for and I thank you for stopping by!
