New adventures

Saturday, August 18th, 2018 @ 10:15 pm | Comments Off

A few days ago, I was reminded unexpectedly about how many adventures we go through in our lives. Some we see coming. Others catch us by surprise. But often we come across mile-markers on the road of life that remind us of where we've come from, or signs that point... Read More

Can you remember where you were when you saw Star Wars for the first time? I can. I was at the Century theaters in San Jose, California in 1977. The movie theater looked like the Death Star and my imagination was fired up when the music began and then a... Read More

Dreams come true

March has been an amazing month so far, one where dreams literally have come true. I spent a great weekend in Seattle at Emerald City Comic Con and met some fans as well as authors who have inspired me for years. I visited my publisher and fellow authors at Amazon... Read More

Cover Reveal: Book 1 of the Harbinger Series

Friday, February 2nd, 2018 @ 5:52 pm | Comments Off

It's a little strange to be announcing a new series when I'm half-way done writing it and haven't even told you, my dear fans and friends, what's going on. But since Amazon won't let me keep secrets from you (the pre-order page is up, after all), I thought I'd take... Read More

Visions of the Future

When I look back on New Years Day one year ago, at the beginning of 2017, I would never have guessed all that's happened in a year. That's probably a good thing. Surprises can be fun. Earlier last year, we got to go to Universal Studios for the first time... Read More

It's been a busy summer and I haven't written a blog posting in a while. My family moved from California to the Rocky Mountains this summer. After being in our last house for 16 years, it's been quite an adjustment. I also just returned from a trip to New York... Read More

Predicting the Future

Monday, July 31st, 2017 @ 10:47 pm | 13Comments

While doing final line-edits for THE FORSAKEN THRONE, I discovered that I'd mis-attributed a quote to Abraham Lincoln in my author's note. The quote is "The best way to predict the future is to invent it" and it was actually said by a guy working for Xerox Parc, the team... Read More

Launch for Hollow Crown and where I was

Friday, June 23rd, 2017 @ 9:31 pm | 2Comments

Life has interesting ups and downs and some unexpected turns. When I was finishing The Hollow Crown, I couldn't have predicted where I would be when the book was released. For me, Pub Days are usually pretty quiet. I don't do launch parties, book signings, or stuff like that. I'm... Read More
