When I started writing I didn’t think I would one day produce nine books. Not ever. Even when my first book came out. It just…it wouldn’t have computed. It still doesn’t. I have put my ninth book out just before I turn 40. So strange. For me The Last Sheep is the end of a… Continue reading The Last Sheep – a novel
When I first wrote The Meep Sheep I never ever imagined there were more stories to be written. I wasn't 'done' with the world so much as I didn't know there was more to say. As time passed the world of the Meep Seep stayed with me and the idea of writing stories, side stories,… Continue reading The Kreep Sheep – a dark sequel
Just after midnight last night I finished work on the third Meep Sheep book. It took a little longer than the month I had planned on but I hadn't anticipated the walls I would hit at the end. I can say that I wrote a novella now. One single story that is 83 single spaced pages.… Continue reading The End Of The Third Age
The notion of tone has been weighing heavily on my mind of late as I work to finish the last book in the Meep Sheep series. A touchstone for those books, for me, has been that they were not dumbed down but were accessible to most ages. I strove to write and release something that… Continue reading Tone

Well, last night was a pretty important night in the life of the new book - it was the last day of editing on The Kreep Sheep, which means that the hard stuff is done. Well, not really, it just means the editing is done. I am pretty stoked. I set deadlines for myself as… Continue reading Something Kreeps Over the Horizon

We adults are a funny lot, ya know? As kids all we want is to grow up to be able to do whatever the heck it is that we want to do, dreaming of that distant day when we can be our own bosses yet, as soon as we are grown up, we act… Continue reading Fairy Tales and Growing Up
In my newest book The Meep Sheep the story focuses on four people who are brought together in the hopes of pulling their Kingdom from the brink of forever darkness. The theme of darkness is as old as Mankind itself and is familiar card for those who have ever done any reading. The idea of… Continue reading The Players and the Play…
As any writer, I loathe labels. Sure, it makes it easier to homogenize what you are doing, and gives you a buzz word to sell the work but jeepers, it seems so limiting to just say ‘oh, it’s a ______’. Nothing is every that cut and dried. Mysteries have an element of terror to… Continue reading So Why A Fairy Tale?
