I’ve got a new story out today! Originally part of a science fiction anthology, Centurion is now available as a standalone ebook (for a mere 99 cents—I’d charge less but they don’t let me.) Here’s a little bit about the story… Centurion New planet, new problems Josu and his father trade up for a second chance […]
Happy Thanksgiving, my friends!
Break for an Elsagram
We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you a very important announcement. This is an Elsagram. Here is Elsa with her tennis ball. Her ball is the best ball. What’s that noise?
A chance for more sci-fi stories here
I’m a science fiction writer first, so I’ve been contemplating the best way to get more SF stories onto this blog. I always post snippets from my upcoming novels, of course, but I don’t produce full length books fast enough to keep those snippets running for long. (The next book in my Translocator series won’t […]
Belly full of cake
Shelly and I did a cake tasting tonight, for the wedding in March. I’m so full of cake! It was delicious. Wonderful flavors like peaches and cream, and blueberry bourbon, and all sorts of chocolatey caramel deliciousness. The caterers we found are very talented.

Cold weather means fires 🔥
It’s cold enough now that we can use our fireplace again! One of my favorites parts of the dark season. It almost makes the shorter days worth it. Stay cozy.

A third of the way on Translocator 3
Almost two weeks since my last update on Translocator 3. Now I’m sitting at just over 32,000 words, which is about a third of the way to done if I use my upper limit of 90k as a gauge. I didn’t find much time to write over the weekend but I got back on the wagon today. Managed […]
