Welcome to hell. No, not the hell of reading another one of my book reviews, or the hell of hearing Jennifer Lopez's latest song, but the hell that is Satan's fiery domain. For here a demon named Dren is looking for salvation and redemption and must escape the underworld and save a single soul to pass on to the heavens above.

I’m a novelist and student of the imagination living in Honolulu. Fantasies, visions, hallucinations or whatever we call those irrational powers that illuminate our inner life fascinate me. I’m particularly intrigued by the creative intelligence that scripts our dreams. And I love carrying this soulful energy outside my mind, into the one form that most precisely defines who we are: story.
