December 1, 2017

how the heck did this happen

October 9, 2017

Wow… apologies.

The original versions of these titles we…

The next phase

September 30, 2017

So, for the last thirty years I’ve been dividing my time between two creative avenues. On the one has been of course my writing (literary and screenwriting), and on the other I’ve been programming, initially contracting to the Navy and later for Washington State.

Serpent’s Keep sequel coming in 2018

July 27, 2017

My time is generally divided equally between development and marketing. I wish it wasn’t so, marketing isn’t on my list of favorite things to do, but there it is. If you’re gonna be a successful writer, ya’ gotta market. If you write books that no one reads, then what you’re doing is a hobby, not a …
