He has a B.A. and M.A. in medieval history, with minors in history and anthropology. Who knew they would come in useful?

He is also a practitioner of Historical Western Martial Arts, with his main focus being on early 17th century Italian Rapier. (Primarily Capoferro, for you WMA enthusiasts and Princess Bride fans out there. Yes, Capoferro was a real guy!)


This was a hard one. And I wasn’t even judging. (Thank goodness.) There were thirty-two entries for the SWORN IN STEEL ARC giveaway. Thirty-two fun, clever, imaginative entries. I asked for you people to show your creativity, and you brought … Continue reading →

“You expected me to find a trustworthy forger?”
Douglas Hulick, Among Thieves

“I suggest you...Fuck."

Even if it was an invitation, I doubt I would have been able to take her up on it just then. Inspiring as she could be in bed, I just didn't have it in me at the moment.”
Douglas Hulick, Among Thieves

“Yes," said Jalem as he returned to his brushing. "You've obviously done a superb job so far. Tell me, do I need to make an appointment to try and kill Drothe, or is it simply on a first-come, first-served basis? I can never keep kin etiquette straight.”
Douglas Hulick, Among Thieves

Todd Don't worry about the delay! Thanks for doing some great writing! Among Thieves is high on my list of books. Writing a book a year is something most authors can't do so don't get too stressed out!! I look forward to it whenever it hits some shelves. I've settled for giving Thieves as a gift to people.

Todd Hi Thanks Douglas, I hope the writing is going well! I'm looking forward to reading Sworn in Steel and anything else you write!

You were not a fan of either Dune or Ender's Game! Oh my! Why?
