10 Years of Muirwood

Ten years ago this week, 47North released The Legends of Muirwood as a trilogy all on the same day. That's not a typical thing for a publishing company to do. It wasn't a typical thing for me to do either when I self-published the trilogy all at once myself. I could... Read More

It's been a few months since I wrote a blog post. It's been a busy summer so far and lots going on. Our family took a trip to the East Coast to do some historical sight-seeing (Federal Hall in New York, Weehawken in Jersey, Philadelphia, Gettsyburg, DC). We had a... Read More

I can't believe that it's time to share the cover for book 3 of my new Muirwood series. It's been a whirlwind putting together this trilogy and so very neat that the cover is now *live* and ready for the third and final book. It's also available... Read More

Yes, it's time for another cover reveal! Book 2 of the Dawning of Muirwood is coming in September and the cover art is now up on Amazon, so I wanted to share it with you. You can pre-order this here:

If you'd asked my teenage self what I dreamed of for in the future when I hit my 50's, I probably would have said either owning a DeLorean (Back to the Future) or a Lotus (For Your Eyes Only). Or being a full-time author. At least one... Read More

Tales from Kingfountain, Muirwood, and Beyond

The very first short story I published for Deep Magic was in the June 2002 issue. Because that issue also included an excerpt from my fantasy novel LANDMOOR, I decided to publish the short story under the pen-name JT Slane. That story "Wizard Auditions" is now almost... Read More

Last night, my wife stayed up very late (for her) because she couldn't put something down. What was it you may ask? Her Kindle. What was on her kindle? A secret copy of what I'm working on right now. I'm ready to let you all in on the secret ,... Read More
