"Redbird Dreaming about Why Love is Always Important" is the official first print in the Redbird Series.

After being born and raised in the southeastern United States, I spent many years, while pursuing my education and serving in the U.S. Air Force, traveling around America and the world.

I am currently completing an artbook project on the COVID-19 pandemic with text contributions from writers around the world.
