Hey check it out: coming November 19th, my first original novel based on the Netflix series Lost in Space! I've written two novels featuring original adventures for Will Robinson and his Robot and family (the second comes out in 2020). This first book, Return to Yesterday, takes place during Season 1, and features some of my favorite stuff: mysterious aliens, time travel, and far off worlds. L Read more of this blog post »

“History is always written to serve the powerful.”
Kevin Emerson, The Lost Code

“On the list of things that are the worst about life, missing chances will always be number one.”
Kevin Emerson, Carlos Is Gonna Get It

“And maybe that's the secret: Maybe we do go in circles, but they're orbits, created by the gravity of our hearts and hopes, and so if we stay true to ourselves, we will face the same situations again, but each time we come around, we know more, we've grown, learned, and this time we can get it right, or at least a little better.”
Kevin Emerson, Exile
