Well, it's obvious I've been away from Goodreads too long. My latest novel, "God's Lions - The Dark Ruin" has been out since last October, and I'm currently at work on the 4th book in the series, "God's Lions - Realm of Evil". Thanks for all the wonderful emails.The Dark Ruin

“We are like flames on a match that suddenly blaze forth and end just as quickly in a wisp of smoke, extinguished by a single breath, but it’s what we do during that brief flash of existence that shapes our eternal destiny.”
John Lyman, House of Acerbi

“Just remember, the desire to elevate one’s self at the expense of another is the mark of an insecure personality, so”

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”
Albert Einstein
