In Today's News

Dec 7, 2019 - My current novel is called The Power of Twelve. It's a complete rewrite of my first novel, originally titled Prophecy of the Seventh Dragon. I published this as Tyler Blackwood, a name that no longer fits me. Sadly, I'm not a fast writer, so progress has been slow. Still, there is progress and I'm hoping the book will be published next year. When, I'm not sure.

This series started out as urban fantasy with some (spicy) romance to it. I've eliminated the romance and made it straight fantasy. I plan to rewrite all three stories. The fourth novel was never published, but it's done and finishes the series nicely, I think.

Jun 10, 2019 - I have a few articles posted on my blog, which were also published by Sassy Girls Book Expo. Sadly, SGBE has decided to close its doors. I will still do my articles, but they'll just be on my blog.

In other news, I'm back to working on the interactive story. The illustrations were proving to be too much work, so the chapters will only have a few images. I really wanted more, but there are only so many hours in the day. Check it out here.

Mar 4, 2019 - I've put up the first chapter of my interactive story, called The Long Walk. Check it out by clicking on the Games link above.

About the Dark Side

I started writing as a teenager, but have been writing professionally (off and on) since 2003, under more than one pseudonym, mostly because my name is sooo boring. But now I've decided to write as me.

Everyone has a dark side.

I write fantasy novels. My current series is about a group of warriors who fight things that go bump in the night. A recurring theme in these stories is that while the warrior is battling something that wants to destroy humanity, he's also battling the darkness in his own head.

My heroes are flawed people, in emotional pain, trying to get through the day without exploding. Some get better, some don't. Some can't.

The darkness lives inside all of us. You might not want to admit it's there, but it is nonetheless. How much you show to the rest of the world is entirely up to you.

Mostly. Sometimes, the darkness shows itself in spite of you. Because sometimes it's in control, not you.

And that's when the really bad stuff happens.
