His second novel, The Lost Prince (book 2 of the Guardians of Aandor), dropped on Aug. 20, 2013. He currently lives in New Jersey and works as an editor in Manhattan. Edward's hobbies include tournement poker, movies, playing softball, biking, and eating rich foods.

Vincent Van Gogh: Starving ArtistOn a seemingly innocuous Website called Internships.com resides an ad titled, Artist Needed for Graphic Novel, asking for an illustrator to help develop a 90-page graphic novel for free. The average illustrator can produce one to two comic pages per day, so at minimum, this is a 45-day, full-time commitment. To non-creative types, this internship looks innocent...

The Ogre Hunt (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Nov 12, 2014 01:39PM
Description: This short story is a YA prequel to my Guardians of Aandor series from Tor books. The series itself is not YA, so more adult fantasy (i.e. Game of Thrones) is not your thing, you might want to stop after this story. The main character is one who appears as an adult in the novel. Spoiler alert: the character's true nature is a mystery for half of the first book, Awakenings. By reading the short, you discover what she is in advance of the novel. This should not effect the enjoyability of the novel overall.
