Bold Words is an opinion and response blog solely maintained and operated by me, creative writer for fiction and nonfiction. I received a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of Tampa in 2016 and a Bachelors Degree in Theater from The University of Alaska Anchorage in 2013.
As a conservative in a left-leaning industry, it can be pretty maddening to quietly say nothing and nod your head just to get along. It also doesn’t do anything to maintain moral values. I started this blog to speak back, give an alternative voice in writing, and hopefully make some kind of difference. I’m an American, a constitutionalist, and an advocate for free speech.
I enjoy writing fiction and love exploring the world and its absurdities through the creation of fiction. I have a quirky and darker sense of humor and a penchant for truth. I’m doing the best I can to figure out the world as I go.
I have written one novel and am currently seeking representation and publication for it. I have started working on my second novel and have a handful of short stories. I look forward to writing more, but I look way more forward to the day I can write as my day job. 😉
And hopefully, you’ll get to read some of that in the near future. We can only hope at this point.
