I worked at a grocery store for roughly four years in high school, and that experience translated smoothly into a novel.

I also wanted to create a small-town character who wasn't "stuck." Many depictions of small-town life, whether in books, movies, or TV, have characters who supposedly aren't living up to their full potential because they happen to live in a rural area and/or work at a menial job - as if cities are the only places where people can really blossom, or professional jobs the only ones worth doing. I wanted to twist around this idea, and show that someone can be content living a "simple" life.(less)

The Elites Have Returned

It’s time to get darker….

Book Two of my Elites series, Rogue Superheroes, blasted onto the Kindle Store recently.

And I am stoked.

Not only for the kickass cover, designed by the incomparable 187Designz.

[image error]Awesome

But also for the story – which, of course, is what it’s all about, right?

Rogue Superheroes continues the tale of the reborn Elites, (allegedly) the world’s greatest sup...

WARNING: Spoilers.

It's difficult to make a post-apocalyptic world dull, but Blake pulls it off.

Oh, the world is terrible and cruel, as expected, but it's a paint-by-numbers cruelty. The bad guys are generic bad guys, really the only difference betwee
