Member Since
July 2013


I live in the Pittsburgh area, enduring the seemingly endless winters, and the sometimes brutally hot summers.

If I'm not writing...which is almost never, I love hiking and movies.

I am also a board game designer, and my new game, Dodge Dice, is available from Gamewright Games.

Best Place to Read and Write: The Park

Favorite Movie: Avatar (When I saw that movie the first time, it lit something inside me and I came home and started seriously writing for the first time.)

I am terrible at keeping up with these. Mostly, I don't have much that seems interesting to say...I don't suppose that you want to know what I had for lunch or crap like that, so I just post when there is something...

So here goes:

All Things In The Shadows I, my new YA/Urban Fantasy series featuring a lesbian main character is due out in March.

“From everything that I've read, people before the collapse were what I would politely call "weak". I'm sure they were nice enough, smart enough, and probably thought they had everything under control, but it doesn't take much to shatter your world. Luk and I had been training for this our entire lives, preparing to enter a world of harsh realities and it's nearly been the end us both multiple times. Back in the day, when chaos reigned, it was kill or be killed, there was little middle ground. The weak definitely did not inherit the Earth. Strength is survival.

Sojourn Book III - The Beastlands”
B.D. Messick

“Only the top floors of the tallest skyscrapers pierce the otherwise featureless landscape, some of the buildings sit at bizarre angles, as if the sand is the only thing holding them up. If anything communicates the power of nature and the fleeting control of the human race upon the Earth, it's the scene in front of us.

Sojourn - The Deadlands”
B.D. Messick

“Quote from the 2nd book in the Sojourn Series:

It's funny how quickly things can change, how fragile life is. I still can't come to terms with those six days. I don't know if I ever will, but I do know that I'm not the same person I used to be.

Rayn Mirago”
