I live in the hot Sonoran Desert among scaled survivors, steely eye hawks and majestic saguaros.

I'm inspired by crowded malls, streams that barely trickle, patches of moss, charred forests, and distant mountain ranges. The clacking of keys can be heard throughout my home late at night and I'm always writing. Scratching of pens, pencils and paintbrushes are also some of my favorite of tools.

To date, I’ve written 4 books and illustrated a handful more, and I’ve only begun to speak.

Review: "[...] another book on zombies but this one turned out really good. I found it refreshing and absolute creativeness. Nowadays U can go down the list of copy vs copy of authors who feed off of each others work with a newly added twist/ This book parts from the mundane with a fresh approach and shows someone capable of taking a rehashed subject and making it a worthwhile read. I hope he writes more. "

Sugar Scars by Travis Norwood

"I think the group would find it refreshing since the story is unique. A virus kills most of the population (which is very typical for this genre), but the story takes a different focus. Most of the survivors have it easy since resources are plentiful. But a nineteen-year-old girl who is a type 1 diabetic will die if she can't figure out how to make insulin."

Partholon by D. Krauss
2013, 311 pages
Kindle: 6.99 Paperback: 13.99

No tiny blurb provided, so I'm grabbing a bit of the long one:

"Based on an old Irish legend of the same name, Partholon is a brutal look at how the just and the civilized respond to anarchy. It will delight lovers of action and military science fiction, like John Scalzi's Old Man's War or Robert Ferrigno's Prayers for the Assassin."

I've not read the 2nd or 3rd in Red Rising, but it's next on my reading list. and same with Auri's story. I was looking forward to the third book in the King Killer Chronicles, and have been waiting a long time. Her story wasn't all that exciting to me, but not because I didn't like her character, but because I didn't learn much about her mystery it didn't seed that desire. But I like Rothfuss's voice, so I will read it.
I'm knee deep in the Way of Kings Trilogy. Really good. Book 1 started weird, but I pushed through it and glad I did because it all came together.


Andres Rodriguez Have you read the 2nd and 3rd book of the Red Rising Trilogy? Also, did you read Rothfuss's book about Auri?
