Blogging

I've blogged on and off (mostly off) for the last sixteen years or so. I end up getting busy with other things, and blogging ends up to be the first thing to get left behind. I will try to keep going. I have some blog posts archived from before, so will get those posted as time permits.

I'm currently rewriting my first novel, titled The Stone of Ashka. It's about an immortal warrior who must prevent the otherworldly Twelve from finding and using the powerful and deadly Stone to forge a new world order. Intrigued? Me too. Exactly who or what is the Twelve and why is the Stone powerful and deadly. Check out my site for more info. I have chapter excerpts, games, and character profiles there as well.

Okay, so that's the extended elevator speech. On to other stuff.

My stories are about people with a dark side. Everyone has one, whether they want to admit or not...or maybe they don't know how dark they really are. It's fascinating, and all based on real psychological issues. I'm not a psychologist, but how the mind works and deals with the world (or doesn't) never ceases to amaze me.

Pretty much everything I write is fantasy. I strive to make my worlds as real as possible, with real, plausible solutions, so you might think, well, maybe that could happen. It really can't, but I want it to seem like it could.
