Above all, I’m curious. I write and create to explore the human condition. What makes us tick? Why are we the way we are? Why do we develop these elaborate social systems like governments and religions and then work so relentlessly at tearing it all apart? I believe that within the forest of fiction lay the seeds of what makes us people and I view it as my job to germinate those seeds.
My work spans genres including adventure, historical, fantasy, and science fiction. My work spans media, including novels, non-fiction, and games. My interests span subjects, including philosophy, religion, and technology. But at my core and the core of this blog, is an exploration of who we are. It is often humorous, sometimes reckless, and irreverent. But my approach to creating stories here is the same as it is in my projects–and that is, to play things out. Let it incubate and take ideas as far as they will go and in the most realistic way possible.
Stay tuned as I show you under the hood of my creative process, bring you into my projects ongoing and open up my world so you can participate.

Great fun, fast moving and a nice twist to the ending.

Adventure reading at its best. A spicy, elusive treasure hunt.

A wonderfully exciting roller coaster ride of a book.
Hard-bitten prose should please lovers of the genre.
