So, at the end of last year, Nick and I did a podcast with Audiobooks After Dark. Unfortunately, the original posted location for the video was closed and we thought the content might be as well. Good luck for us, I was able to connect with Brian Krespan of Brian’s Book Blog and he found a backup. So, without further adieu, here is the resurrected Podcast. Hope you guys enjoy.Read More

I’m hoping to update this blog on a regular basis so between checking here and the Current Writing section of this site, you should be able to stay abreast of all the current goings on.

Well, I don’t ever want to leave folks wondering so promise to do my very best to keep everyone fully informed.Read More
