"Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase: just take the first step." (Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.) I'm a twentysomething writer living in Hamilton, Ontario, currently working on a book and several freelance articles, among other things. Last May, I was married to my lovely wife, who is the founder of her own wedding planning company,and I'm on my own career adventure these days, temping and, recently, working for a travel agency in Burlington. I'm also a part-time graduate student through Athabasca University, though I received my undergrad degree in History and English from McMaster University a few years ago. My writing has gone completely square in past years, focusing mostly on op/eds, scholarly papers, and articles for such sites as Suite101.com. However, I really miss creative fiction, especially speculative fiction, sci-fi, and epic tales. I'm looking forward to starting here at Protagonize, and when I get some more time, I will definitely make my presence known.
