Thanks!

I was always a huge reader in school--the kid who won the award for reading the most books. I started writing because I wanted to tell stories that would thrill other people the way the books I loved had thrilled me. Ultimately, that's still what inspires me. I just want to tell exciting, entertaining stories about characters people care about. Hopefully I've succeeded.(less)

I wasn’t able to post this yesterday, but this is actually yesterday’s poem from first lines provided the day before that by Gerald Hill, Poet Laureate of Saskatchewan, to all members of the Saskatchewan Writers Guild. Just one more poem to go! It’s been a blast incorporating these random lines of Saskatchewan poetry into new science fiction/fantasy/horror poems. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading t...

Satisfying conclusion to the series; I only marked it down because of some clunky writing that should have been caught by either an editor or the author during revisions/proofing. Characters would speak "quietly" four or five times on a single page, ...more
