About my writing

About my writing

They say "write what you know," and that's exactly what I always find myself doing! If I've experienced something, then I can describe how it looks and feels, and why it matters. As a result, you will notice a few recurring themes in my writing: Catholicism and faith, exploration of romantic and sacrificial love, and references to Philadelphia -- a city I know like the back of my hand. Although I mostly write fiction, my stories almost always touch upon the aforementioned subjects. I only write what matters most to me, and love and faith are the two things I live for. They are the reason why I'm passionate about life, and passionate about transferring my thoughts to paper.

In terms of style and voice, I'm a big fan of long sentences, semicolons, and dashes. They add a real flare, when used correctly, to any piece of writing, and make the tone more conversational and realistic. I'd compare my work in style and/or content to The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo, How to Love by Katie Cotugno, and Wild by Cheryl Strayed, to name a few.
