I’m going to address the top three […]

Inside the Concepts of a Killer Nightclub

They say news comes in two forms: Good and Bad. The Good: I’m working on Last Light. The Bad: It’s gonna be huge and my fingers are bleeding. Sometimes I’m stalled in my writing by simply needing to come out of the story to do research so I can feel my way through a setting […]

Writer Woe Number 428 (or something like that): Too Many Blasted Characters

Saying Farewell

Someone once said that, to say goodbye to a character that has been part of you for years, is like bidding farewell to a piece of you. As I write the last book in Eila’s story, I know it’s true. I have no doubt that when I’m done with the final book in the UNDERTOW […]
