RObert Kagan's "The Return of History" another review of another generally hubristic American exceptionalist.
My focus at the moment is to get my web site up and running. I'd like to develop a forum for discussing sexual issues.

I'm currently peddling a feature film script, a comedy series for television, and I'm finishing up my autobiography.
A story about an eccentric person and his worlsd around him
I am editing Divine Justice, the second book in the Divine series. I recently finished a chilling suspense thriller titled Children of the Fog that is now in the hands of my agent. It will officially be my 5th book, and Divine Justice my sixth, when they are published.
Next spring, I hope to start on Finding Bliss, the first novel written on an iPhone 3G using the Notes application. I've been in the news lately because of this. I can't wait to start this novel! It's already percolated and is now into the fermenting stage. :)
My second book in the ORP Series, Into the Black Kingdom, as well as a comprehensive study of rune lore and magic.
A novel titled Rainy Skies. I'm halfway through it and I'm collaborating with my friend to do a manga version on it too. I also got my friends to cosplay my characters from the novel as well.
I am working on a variety of short stories and a children's book.
Two writing projects and research for future projects.
A historical adventure novel set in 1666.
A business Bio on a Jacksonville, Florida, company that reshaped its industry in 15 months and became the national leader in its field.
I also consult on a continuing basis for the association of bed & breakfast inns in St. Augustine. A nice change of pace.
In addition to Stowaways, I am also working on a children's TV pilot for a major cable network, a couple of interstitial spots and a computer animated series called Aurora, due for release in 2009.
|I have just finished 50,000 words towards the second novel in my Battle Cleric fantasy series. The novels focus on the life of Emerald Verity, a retired battle cleric, and currently the high priestess of the Maker in Shemara, on the world of Athero. In book 1, Em discovers that there is a scroll containing a prayer that will resurrect people who have been dead for a long time, even centuries. You don't even need to have the corpse. She sets out, with a number of friends and colleagues, to find this scroll, meeting many new people along the way. She also nearly succumbs to a curse from her past in a battle where she temporarily lost her eyesight. Now the whole thing is coming back to haunt her. They find the scroll and discover one of the ingredients are petals of the green Sea Rose of Hume and that they must retrieve this rose, which apparently blooms only once every five hundred years, before the enemy does. The enemy is planning to use the prayer to resurrect leaders of old to unite the maligns (bad guys) of the planet and overcome the benigns (good guys).
In book 2, Em and a band of adventurers board a ship to try and locate the Sea Rose. Along the way, she finds a new race of people, is given a puppy that may or may not be a god, battles sharks and defeats them by talking them out of eating her, and ultimately battles a silver dragon, the guardian of the Sea Rose of Hume. It isn't finished yet, so I can't tell you anymore.
There will be a book 3, but I have to figure out where I finish book 2, before I can tell what will be in book 3. That will likely be the last book of the series.
I am also working on an anthology of short stories by the FantasyFic writers. It is awesome, with a stunning cover illustrating the first story in the book, which is my "Birth of a Unicorn." I am very excited about this anthology.
I recently edited an anthology entitled In the Shadow of the Burr Oak, which is a collection of stories by the students in my two writing classes earlier this year. I was blown away by their talent and suggested an anthology. We ordered 100 books printed locally. They were sold out within three weeks (and this is a very small town). We ordered a second edition (perfect bound with revisions) of 100 books. We have about 30 books left. Pretty good for a small local book :)
I have another book Stranger in the Shore stalled at the 3/4 complete mark. Not sure why it's stalled. It will get finished though - it's too good a story not to.
