The less you know about me, the better you'll like me. Seriously, I'm the kind of people your parents told you not to hang around with. So when you read my books, just imagine that I look like a young Brad Pitt, but with Morgan Freeman's voice.

I hope you enjoy my novels, especially the new book I just released: Ming the Merciless, available exclusively on Amazon.

By the time I get back to the first book I will have had the time to work out the problem that hung me up.

For me, writer's block is usually caused by a critical decision that can alter the course of the story. I have to let it brew in the back of my mind until I have worked out all possible outcomes of the decision. I really hate it when I take a wrong turn and have to go back and scrub pages and pages of work. Writing is fun, but editing is real work.(less)

Not only that, but writing is an emotional roller coaster; one day you think you're the king of the world...and the next you think you are total shit. Then there's the constant self-doubt about your work, editing, rejection letters, bad reviews, marketing, and so many other ugly aspects of writing.

But you forget about all of that when you get that first proof copy in the mail. I've written many books, but I still get a thrill when I have that first beta-copy in my hands, and I realize that I created that entire book...the cover, the interior, the story...from nothing more than a blinking cursor on a blank page. That's the coolest part of all.(less)
