THE AMULET - Journey to Sirok is NOW available. Book II in The Elias Chronicles will be out soon -- The Rings: Journey Beneath Sirok.

About me...I write about people—they fascinate me. Wherever I go, I listen, I engage and I write. These experiences are the substance of great characters. We are all intrigued by fascinating characters.

In my book Zen Master Next Door (2009 and 2012), I introduced eighty unique characters all coming at life from different directions but moving in such a way to better understand who they are and where they want to go.

Balance is everything. My wife and children have boundless energy, and I love that. I stay fit, try to eat the right foods and don't take myself too seriously. I'm a romantic at heart, and think the

I find that most folks I know have left their imagination behind them as they mover step by step through every year, when in fact, they should be cultivating and growing their imagination--it's not just for our 9 year old self.

When "creating " a character, a writer has an empty canvas to work with and that's exciting. Who is this person? Where did they come from? What did they eat for breakfast? What's going on in their head? Who are they like me? Or not like me? Believe me, it's not only fun, but it gives your brain a good workout. Yeah, our imagination is so important whether we're a writer or not. (less)

When Elias travels to an underworld to save his friend, little does he know that he will use his new powers he learns from the mystic, Tas, to save his friend and conquer the "conveyor of evil" and an unhinged world.

Can't say too much, but although it obviously follows Book I, I have written both stories to stand along. I hope to share this new story in the spring or summer of 2018. (less)
