Can you feel it? The anticipation has been mounting. The excitement has been rising. We’ve been holding our collective breath. Now it’s time to get to work.
Over the last, few weeks, we’ve been using the lens of Nehemiah to see that when we work together, it can change how a generation sees God....Read more of this blog post »
Grand Beast: Book 1: The Bear
Grand Beast: The Bear is now up on Amazon.
To say it was fun to write would be an understatement. It also was one of my longer novellas, being 40K and not being a bundle.
There are some similarities to Lord of Dusk, but I do think there are also enough differences for... Read more of this blog post »
Here's the last exclusive chapter before you can dive into the full novel tomorrow!

As an author, I sometimes wonder who would best play the roles in my novels.
I recently watched an enjoyable comedy called The Nice Guys. In the movie was this actor I like, but I've never taken the time to find out his name. I was thinking he'd make a fabulous groundsman in Master of Madhouse, b... Read more of this blog post »

To be honest, at first I didn’t intend to write a sequel to Doomware. The ending was supposed to be abrupt and ambiguous, leaving readers to decide in their imaginations what happened next. It also seemed, for really the first time since I’d started writing novels, that somehow I’d been “channell...Read more of this blog post »
I've got to start off by saying just how awesome God is! I used to write stories in junior high and high school. Some were made-up stories of how I wished my life would be, and some were loosely centered a... Read more of this blog post »

"As he walked down the street, James found his senses instantly assaulted but not in an unpleasant way. The music intensified in his ears. Faeries and humans brushed past him. He was dizzy from taking in all the different sights and colors and lights. He smelled sickeningly sweet foods and sharp,...Read more of this blog post »
I'm sorry for my absence, but have had some medical issues that have kept me from my work. But it also has given me some time to think and map things out.
I'm in the process still of writing up my first book of short stories, so be on the lookout for that. I'll let everyone k... Read more of this blog post »

Ieri sono stata al Padova Pride.
Tornare a Padova è sempre come tornare a casa e già questo sarebbe bastato a rendere la giornata memorabile, ma c’erano anche la parata e le mie amiche a renderla indimenticabile, quindi eccomi qui a scrivere di questo 30 Giugno 2018.

I am too told to read Harry Potter. I was too told to read the series the first time I attempted to read it thirteen years ago.
During this Eid-ul-Fitr, my brother asked me to read it. I refused.
He insisted. I told her that last time I tried, I had to give it up after 49 pages. The fact that I sti...Read more of this blog post »

Is not a burden to bear.
It is unexpected in so many ways, yet
there was never a chance for us to avoid it:
the path seeming tangent but twisting and connecting just in time.
Train tracks flipped by a single switch
that altered the course of everything.
Solid ground to stand on, legs strengthened by ho...Read more of this blog post »
I know . . . you’d like Jake’s story. And I promise it will be coming. Just not yet.
You see, I’ve got another couple of stories I’d like to get out of my head and onto paper first. They are different than my Thornton Brothers books. Darker. More twisted. Or, as some of the early reviews have sai...Read more of this blog post »

Adam tied up the back of his wagon. Standing beside his horse, in the still of the main road, he closed his eyes. He tilted his head back and took a deep breath. On a breeze from the south the scent of freshly baked bread reached out to him.
Broke Bakery was familiar to everyone in part because it...Read more of this blog post »
This site expires on the 4th of August, and I see little reason to delay the inevitable. I post infrequently, and only started the blog 3-years ago in hopes it would help with the writing endeavor. Suffice it to say I don’t think this has been the case. I figure it’s best to wrap things up as I h...Read more of this blog post »

This is a follow-up to my just-posted essay on my unchosen-but-apparently inexorable declining interest in baseball. My chief point there is that baseball has increasingly converged on a set of Best Practices but that convergence has made baseball less interesting to watch.

Nimic nu se compară cu mirosul de ceară al lumânărilor de la mănăstirea Vărzărești.
Nimic nu putem face ca lumea fără soțiile noastre, nici măcar o listă de cumpărături. Nici măcar cumpărăturile.
Nimic nu ne exasperează mai mult decât visul în care nu reușim să învățăm poezia pentru lecția de mâine...Read more of this blog post »

Afgelopen week was een week met pieken en dalen. Ik voelde me heerlijk, maar ook verschrikkelijk, soms zelfs op een dag. Maar wat me deze week in ieder geval wél lukte was de 50.000 woorden aantikken van Supernerd. Voor velen is dit misschien niks, maar ik ben er echt heel trots op, evenals de in...Read more of this blog post »
Writing is a solitary business. Everyone knows that. It requires someone who can sit down for long stretches at a time (or short ones) and compose words that eventually, hopefully, become stories. Most writers I know spend a fair amount of time on their craft, whatever type of writer they are. Ge...Read more of this blog post »
