Biography

I am a full time writer and historian. I have written for Sage Encyclopedia of War: Social Science Perspective and a number of history magazines and journals. I am also active in a number of different areas and contribute to smaller projects.

Although I grew up in the United States I have spent time abroad in South Korea and was an English teacher there for two years.

I have enjoyed reading and studying about Ancient history, particularly the Near East and I have been able to segway that into a love of Middle Eastern history in general. I read my first history book in school and ever since have been gathering every book on the subject that I can. For a few years I pursued a different career path, however, after a few years of being unhappy I changed my direction and obtained a Masters in History. Now I am pursuing my first love and working full time in this area.
