My fantasy, sci-fi series, THE HISTORIES OF EARTH, is a fast-paced, interstellar adventure. It's about a group of "Light Travelers", who must use their secret abilities to sav

Writing Update

For those of you who are waiting for the last book in the "City of Words" series: I'm still writing. I'm nearing the end, but probably don't expect anything readable until next summer or so... unless you sign up to be a proof reader, in which case, you might get the book before then.
