I'm a writer from Hawaii best known for my high-tech science fiction, including the Red trilogy, a series of near-future military thrillers. The first book in the trilogy, The Red: First Light, was a Nebula and John W. Campbell Memorial-award finalist, and named as a Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2015. My newest novel is the very near-future thriller, The Last Good Man , due out in June 2017.

Though I don't review books on Goodreads, I do talk about some of my favorite books on my blog and those posts are echoed here. So I invite you to follow me for news of books and many other things.

Not all things are possible, even in the far future…


“Longing For Earth” is my newest short story. It’s out today, part of Infinity’s End, the final volume of the critically-acclaimed science fiction anthology series edited by Jonathan Strahan. It’s an honor to be included in the last edition of this long-running series!

Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss
"There are two kinds of people in the world. Those who like green eggs and ham, and those who don't.

Well, three. Those who like green eggs and ham. Those who don't. And those who like the green eggs but not the ham. It's just ham, not green ham. We..." Read more of this review »
