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

Childhood Memories

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

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

Monday, December 5th, 2016 @ 3:58 pm | Comments Off

I've been waiting for days now to make this post, so I'm excited to do it now. As I wrote in the author's note of King's Traitor, as I was writing that book, I saw immediately another series in the world of Kingfountain. As you already know, the prequel novel Read More

What comes after Kingfountain?

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016 @ 12:58 am | 16Comments

Today is pub day for my novel, The King's Traitor. Everything about the Kingfountain series has been a risk for me. Writing from the point of view of an eight year old protagonist? And a boy at that? Thwarting the love interest in book two and making everyone (including myself)... Read More

New short story & on-line writer’s seminar

What an amazing month it's been! I've re-booted Deep Magic: the E-zine of Clean Fantasy and Science Fiction, spoken to a huge crowd at a local charter school, became a Wall Street Journal bestselling author because of The Thief's Daughter and will be teaching a fiction writing... Read More

Deep Magic is back!

I've been giddy with excitement about this for months now and can finally share it. After a 10 year hiatus, Deep Magic is back! Ten years ago, we shut down the e-zine after a four-year run including 49 issues. In June, exactly ten years later, we'll be re-launching Deep Magic: the... Read More
