I'm an award-winning game designer. I've worked on Dungeons & Dragons over the course of 4 editions as a writer and developer. I've written over 100 D&D products, including Gates of Firestorm Peak, Return to the Tomb of Horrors, Expedition to Castle Ravenloft, Gamma World, and the Forgotten Realms Campaign Guide. In July 2013, I accepted a position as Senior Designer at Monte Cook Games, LLC, and soon launched The Strange RPG via a wildly successful Kickstarter.

I am also a novel author. My credits include nine novels, mostly set in the popular Forgotten Realms world. My most recent is Spinner of Lies (2012), a sequel to Sword of the Gods. I also wrote the Abolethic trilogy (2008-2010), and several stand-alone novels.

But to myself over that hump, I might just pick a random book off the shelf, open it to a random page, and read a paragraph. Something in that paragraph will probably serve as a writing prompt, a seed of a new angle or approach that I can apply to whatever I'm currently working on.(less)

I started writing the novel Myth of the Maker a long time ago. It's been at least 4 years of actual writing, slow though that writing was, beginning in 2013.
