Missed Calling

I’ve speculated recently that perhaps I missed my true calling. Oh, I’m not ready to entirely give up writing fiction, don’t you worry – but I think I would be much better as an independent editorial writer or political journalist. I’d like to be that kind of novelist that never rocks the boat, that writes for as wide an audience as possible in order to maximize sales – but I just don’t know if I can do it. I see so much wrong with the world, with us, that I feel the almost constant urge to do whatever I can to bring those observations to light. The best way I know how to do this, is through writing.
So, in addition to posts about upcoming work, you will see a good number of ‘rant’ posts here in the future. I know I may lose a few fans in the process, and may stir up a bit of controversy, but that is the price that must be paid. I can not just sit, silent, while we send our entire species hurtling toward extinction. I hope I do tread on some toes, start some controversy, because then I will have done my job. I hope that by doing do, I can shed some light on issues facing us as human beings, and maybe even get some people mad enough to join in solving those issues.
One can only hope.


Current Artwork

I’m busy working on illustration #3 for my upcoming novel, Highway Hypnosis. I’ll have a color preview up in a few days, but here is a preview, based on the sketch I made for the project.

I should be posting the colored version soon, so stay tuned!

New Addition

Please welcome the newest addition to our creative family! Little Savannah Rose was born on Feb. 7th, 2014. She was six weeks early, and weighed in at 5 lbs. 15 oz.

We look forward to showing her the many wonders in the world, and look forward to introducing her to many creative mediums in the future. It’s been a rough road so far, but she is getting stronger as time passes, and are looking forward to many happy times together in the future. It is my birthday today, and I cannot think of a better gift than seeing her big bright eyes look into mine. She is the best present one could hope for, and has added a whole new dimension to my life. Thank you, Michelle, for giving me such a wonderful, wondrous gift, for little else could enrich my life to such an extent as this precious jewel of a child. At my age, I thought I had pretty much seen it all, but I never could have predicted the joy and awe she brings to me every day.
