About a month ago I started a new project. No, I didn’t put The Devoid series on hold - that trilogy is still going strong. But... a month ago while I was out on the waters in February I had a thought; “What’s an Alaskan author without a book of Alaska?” And so, I give you Pocketknife, a fictional survival story that takes place on a remote island in Alaska. I hope you enjoy it! The winter of 1991 is quickly approaching, and twenty-five-year-old Ryan finds himself on a remote island in Southeast Alaska. Five miles offshore, he has zero chance of making it to the mainland alive. Armed with his Leatherman pocketknife and a borrowed lighter from his father, he must endure some of the harshest conditions Alaska has to offer. Ryan's resources are minimal, and the most abundant food he can find may or may not be spiked with a deadly poison that will undoubtedly kill him. It will take every ounce of strength, effort, and sheer-will for him to survive the endless rain.

Strangely, my ideal hours for writing are from about 11PM - 5AM. Weird, huh? Well, for some reason, that's when my creativity flows the best. The issue with that is (and it's an obvious issue) is sleep! People can't think well when they are tired, and the same goes for me. I am 100% a visual writer. I've GOT to see what I'm writing before I write it, otherwise, it just turns out . . . like garbage? Maybe garbage isn't the right word, but if I'm tired and try to write, it's mediocre work at best. That being said, there's definitely a sweet spot for authors to get **** done, and it's not when or where you'd expect it. I get asked questions a LOT like "How much did you write today?" or "Did you finish that chapter yet?" or "When will the next book be out?" Usually, I respond with something bland like "I didn't get anything done," or "Not as much as I wanted." But sometimes, there's that one evening when the clock strikes 12, and things just click. Seriously click, and then BOOM, it's 5am, and I've just written an entire chapter in one go. I like those nights, and I wish every author out there the same luck - may inspiration hit you like a ton of bricks.

Here’s a place for anyone to review, comment, insult, ANYTHING on Book #1. For those that haven’t read it, it is available on Amazon in both Ebook and Printed form. “Seven years after the abrupt and bloody end of the War of Allies, a young boy emerges from the forest. Seemingly an average kid, Sephron has no memory; his only identity is his name and a gold ring. Found by a generous captain and his two subordinates out on patrol, they invite him to their town of Dresford. Life in the civilized world is much easier than surviving in the wilderness, but that doesn't make it any less dangerous. Dark stories of death and destruction a hundred years old resurface at Sephron's unexpected arrival. Who is he, what is he, and why has his appearance triggered these rumors?” I hope you enjoy it! https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B08VCJ8CZ8/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?ie=UTF8&qid=&sr=

I saw a post the other day of a Darth Maul-looking figure. The post asked viewers to describe the villain. Fairly easy I thought, considering the guy has less of a nose than Voldemort, and creepy, glowing eyes that just looked evil. You can tell he's a villain just by looking at him. For example, Two-Face is a villain cause he's missing half his face. He looks like one so he's going to act like one. My question is this, 'What do you think makes a good villain?"
