The Terror is Real. I use that tagline to describe my first book series - Tallow. Growing up I read a lot of Stephen King novels. The ones that truly grabbed me were stories such as Misery. Why?

The creativity just poured out of me at all hours of the day. It is definitely a passion of mine. There is a saying that people either "work to live" or "live to work." I find writing to be the latter. It doesn't feel like work to me when I am writing. (less)

Fantastic dive into the world of self-driving cars. The author does a great job of covering the politics of Silicon Valley versus Detroit, as well as the key players in the early years of the technology.
