Isaiah was born and bred in Texas, and he has the cowboy hat to prove it. Not that he’d actually WEAR the cowboy hat, but he keeps it in case anyone needs proof. He spent his childhood reading a blend of Dickens, Dumas, and Stan Lee, and he dreamed his whole life of becoming a writer. And also of being bitten by a radioactive spider. Unfortunately, only one dream has panned out.
For the last 15 years Isaiah has devoted his life to teaching and leading students and young adults, whether it was through large scale assemblies for new recruits at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO, or through the classroom as a teacher in Albuquerque, NM. He has also written various freelance articles for magazines aimed at the teenage culture and worked as a writing coach for students participating in the National Fine Arts Festival. He has now turned his gift of storytelling and creative presentation to writing novels for children and young adults.
Isaiah lives with with his wife, three children, and his sanity, although that may be moving out soon. He occasionally searches the classifieds for the bulk sale of spiders and uranium but hasn’t found a price he is comfortable with yet. He is represented by Marietta B. Zacker of the Nancy Gallt Literary Agency.
