After that, the re-publication of DARKWALKER and the debut of DARKWALKER 2: INFERNO.

All those books are written already. Right now, I'm writing a contemporary fantasy set in a city in the desert.

And I expect to release InkStains Series 2 in 2017 (while simultaneously writing InkStains Series 3).(less)

A phrase someone says, a word in a book, a piece of art, the fluttering of a butterfly, the tattoo on the shoulder of a server at a restaurant ... anything and everything can offer inspiration. The real trick is to separate the useful inspirations from the bad, and intermingling them in inspiring ways.(less)

Stale Reality

Just came back from Scares That Care Weekend, where we raised a whole lot of money for a good cause (or three good causes), and where I also debuted my newest novel, Stale Reality.

This is possibly the darkest novel I've ever written. It's also a lament for my lost Sydney -- I wrote the first draft immediately after leaving Australia.

Writer's block is one of those things that tends to be most noticeable when you notice it. If you ignore it, or deny it, you can push on -- usually.

Joyland made me nostalgic for a time and a place I never knew. I've never worked for a carnival, and now I wish I had. This book was pure joy from beginning to end.
