  The biggest problem I encounter when trying to complete my novels is finding the motivation to follow through. When I completed my first, and only, manuscript for "The Silhouette" I was at the height of my anxiety. I was constantly afraid of death and what comes after. This led to the conceiving of that story. I wanted to create an afterlife that felt concrete. Following that journey to its e... Read more of this blog post »

This the first Riordan book I truly dove into head first since "The Last Olympians". I loved the narration by Apollo and a return to first person perspective and just found the overall story more engaging. I never connected with the Heroes of Olympus ...more

“I pop a cassette into the Buick's stereo. It's the Ramones. I turn the volume up high and roll down the windows. The highway air tastes of fumes, but it still feels goddamn good to breathe”
Hank Moody, God Hates Us All

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden

“I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all… I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

“I come from a land afar and a land up high. My abilities are only eclipsed by my excellent turn of phrase and if you open your mind, they could be your abilities too.”

“Strong belief in the bright future, always hiding fear of the past”.”
