Keeping the story on track When I started my book, Deadlock, I just sat down and started writing. After juggling it around in my head for almost twenty years I thought I knew the whole story. Was I wrong. I had the first couple of chapters down when I realized I was missing some things.... Continue Reading →
Working on book two.
In a few days I’m going to be sitting down to start writing the follow up book to Deadlock. It’s been quite the learning experience. Early in my first book, I had my wife read the chapters as I wrote them. When the book was finished she said, “Don’t be angry, but your later chapters... Continue Reading →

From reader to writer. Comics have influenced the way I create.
