I haven't posted on this blog since December of 2019... I'm sure it's not surprising that 2020 has been a rollercoaster of a year for me. With nothing of note to write about in a blog, or even any motivation TO write, I've been completely unproductive through the few months where I've had the most … Continue reading 2020 silver lining
For the website, that is! I've updated my website to include the fact that I am now a children's book author! Over the last 5 years, I've released 3 novels (to complete a trilogy), a novelette, and a children's book. 5 BOOKS! It's so insane, but it feels great! While I always loved writing in … Continue reading A nice facelift
The children's book is complete! It goes on sale this week, just in time for Christmas shopping.

I don't consider this a waste of my writing time, … Continue reading Bookworm hibernation
This year has really jump started with a couple of twists. My day job as an air traffic controller for the federal government has taken over my attention with vigor due the government shutdown and other stresses, and therefore I haven't even written one word in this new year. But that's okay! Taking time for … Continue reading Starting off 2019
It's been a busy few weeks with Christmas, the book release, my first book signing, and New Year's all jammed into one week. I had such a wonderful time with friends and family celebrating and I was humbled by the turnout at the book signing party.

As 2018 draws to a close, so does the Statera Saga with the release of my final book in the series: Providence. You might notice I've been pretty quiet leading up to this release.
