    It took longer to decide on what story I wanted

    to tell than it did to actually write the thing. It was called Dead Trees, it was a psychological thriller about a troubled teen trying to prove a popular classmate's suicide was actually a murder. It was flawed; it took itself way too seriously and managed to get bizarrely over...
