I’ve had occasion, recently (or so), to visit Antelope Canyon and its surrounding area. It’s a spectacular sight, a photographer’s dream, whether very amateur like myself or otherwise. Antelope Canyon(s) are slot canyons, unique flukes of geology. The Navajo sandstone of the region is very porous and long, long ago, flood waters rushed through theContinue reading “Monuments to Impermanence”
I hold that the world building in a novel or movie or show should stand on its own well enough for people to be content if that’s all they have, but I also have it on good authority (well, the internet, anyway) that people like more in-depth looks from time to time. With the worldContinue reading “How Do The Holdings Work in the Paladin Trilogy?”
One of my hobbies, besides writing (alas) is martial arts, specifically Krav Maga. A lot of what we learn at my gym is specific defenses you can use to remove yourself from a bad situation, defenses that have more to do with physics than strength. My great cultural upheaval of choice would be to haveContinue reading “Sparring Thoughts”
My MMO of choice is Guild Wars 2. Insult me at will. I shelled out for this game and the reason I got my gaming tower is so it runs smoothly.

I got a chance recently to explain how one oft-overlooked Star Wars character, Wedge Antilles, affected my life on theexpandeduniverse.com!

I had an opportunity to offer up some thoughts on rewritten fairytales on romance author Tory Richards’ blog. Thank you Tory!
The sequel to Doomwalker has been mostly written for awhile now, but it needs heavy edits. I hit the first big info dump last night, having prepped myself with one of these. Infodumps have a bad rep. “Show don’t tell” is a good rule, but it’s got limits. Use it for characterization or- and thisContinue reading “Infodumps and How to Use Them”
With me! If you’d like to know more about me, how I write, and some recommendations for reading, give it a read!
Pour some Rudolphtinis, spike some hot chocolate, or go the easy route of the writer and keep a bottle of wine on hand. It’s time (past time, really) for my Hallmark Christmas movie drinking game. I warn you, if you follow all of these, you won’t last long.
