As many of you may know, I have been actively working on my upcoming novel: Kilian. This stand-alone story follows none other than Kilian Clearwater before he became the powerhouse warrior that we meet in Keepers of the Light. I'm nearing the end of the creation period...

Recently, I've been thinking a lot about how people discover their passion areas and make the decision to move forward: to take the risk. 

I work with (have worked with) a lot--and by a lot, I mean A LOT--of college students over the years. I've volunteered with several...

The best four days of gaming just came to a close. It was the time of my people; and by that I mean the over 60,000 people who fanboy/girl over fantasy authors, table-top board gaming, and nerdy comedy shows. This year, I spent four days discovering new authors, learni...

Have you ever wanted to do something so much that you felt like you would simply burst if you didn't do it? Have you ever worked so hard on something that when you finally reached the top and you looked at what you had achieved that you could barely believe it? It's th...

It's been awhile since I wrote anything. And for that, I am sorry. The exciting news? My debut novel, The Search, is officially published! If you haven't checked it out yet, you definitely should. It's available for purchase on Amazon. Oh, and if you like my Amazon Aut...
