Free Exchange of Ideas…

Can I just ask… what the heck happened? When I first published my work, I got a lot of comments from readers, both positive and negative. Divinity in particular got positive and negative comments from die-hard Christians and atheists, and I don’t understand the negativity. I certainly can’t speak for the rest of the world, so if it’s different outside of the U.S. PLEASE … Read More Free Exchange of Ideas…


Magnifica: The Lost Sequel Pt. 4

IV   Tom kept himself in seclusion during the next few days. He went to class as much as he needed to in order to get by, but other than that, he barely came out of his room. Both Greggor and Jayme came by to see him often, but he almost never opened the door. He slowly became oblivious to the world around him. … Read More Magnifica: The Lost Sequel Pt. 4

Personal bias, dislike, and hatred.

I admittedly was a little hesitant to address this one because of the weight and political biases that go with it.

In Magnifica, Lia’na is often abused for being an elf. Both … Read More Personal bias, dislike, and hatred.


Magnifica: The Lost Sequel Pt 3

III   Weird things began to happen over the next few weeks. Toby and Lia’na disappeared and Gishan wouldn’t talk about it. He walked around like he was a dead man and barely even talked to anyone. One day at lunch, Tom was sitting with Greggor and Jayme when Gishan came in. Tom was talking to Jayme, “Did you hear about what happened in … Read More Magnifica: The Lost Sequel Pt 3

What makes bad people tick?

As a writer, this is something that I’ve explored for a long time now. Why does a bad person become bad? Why do they do bad things, what is the motivation? Just the other day, I was walking to my car from work. I was wearing my normal leather jacket. In Boston it’s very cold at this time of year. As I neared the … Read More What makes bad people tick?

Indirect Sequels…

So I know I’ve touched on this already, but given how much I love this and how much thinking of it sooner may have saved me time and frustration during the publishing phase, I thought I’d go into a bit more detail. When I finished writing Divinity, I thought to myself, “Now it’s done, perfect, an epic story that will no doubt catch the … Read More Indirect Sequels…
