Sci-Fi Roots

I’m a fantasy author, but it may surprise you to know that my first love was science fiction. I still have strong memories and impressions dating back to 1977 when I was sitting in the Century movie theaters on Winchester Blvd in San Jose (which, incidentally, kind of looked like a trio of mini-Death Stars) […]

I’m super excited to share with you the fantastic cover art for my next book: The Maid’s War. This is the one I mentioned in my previous blog post. It is a novel I was inspired to write based on Ankarette, the queen’s poisoner, that so many of you know and love. I have ideas […]

I created this blog 10 years ago to document my journey to publication. It’s really not worth reading chronologically, but I recently went back to a post I made on June 28, 2006. At that point in my life, I had recently shut down Deep Magic. I was also about to start writing a little book […]

Back home and ready for the launch of VOID

I had a great time at New York Comic Con last weekend. There was a huge banner for the upcoming Shannara Chronicles show as well as over 160,000 visitors. Being an introvert, it was a bit overwhelming, but I had a great time signing books, my new graphic novel, and speaking on a panel with many […]

I’ve been keeping this a secret for almost a year. That’s especially difficult when I’m so excited about it. Before I left my day-job, I was approached by the folks running Kindle Worlds with the idea of opening up the world of Muirwood for others to write in. I’m absolutely thrilled to announce that it is not only […]

There is power in persistence

There is power in persistence. I have told this story several times to friends and family, but I do not think I have shared it on my blog. There was a time, three years ago, when I was tempted to quit writing. In 2011, I had self-published the Muirwood Trilogy and the reviews were good, […]

It’s official – I’ll be attending Comic Con in New York next month! My publisher invited me to participate in a panel, so I will be on my way to New York the second week of October. I’ve been to Manhattan twice before and it is truly an exciting city and I love going there. […]

About the Author

While working on some content to include in my Amazon author page, I decided to write the story about how I became an author. It may be a little long, but I tried my best to tell just the important parts. I left out some fun things, like driving to San Francisco with Jeremy looking for first edition […]

Quotes from Vizzini

After I got my Twitter account, I realized that it would be very difficult for me to come up with something pithy to say in 140 characters every day or so. That’s just not me, and I’m not sure anyone really cares about my opinions on celebrity self-embarassments or tragic news stories. If you do care, […]
