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

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

So excited to reveal the next book cover. I'm so thrilled with the talent of Shasti O'Leary-Soudant who has created all the covers of the Kingfountain series. Book 5 is pretty intense. If you don't want any spoilers, then don't read the description! But by all means, enjoy the cover... Read More
