Any time I take a break from writing, I’m reading. I love to lose myself in someone’s else’s world for a day or two. If that includes some fantasy and ass kicking, even better. Here are the series I follow. I’ll even stop writing to read at least the first chapter when these are released. Kim Harrison’s The Hollow’s Series. I love Rachel Morgan and her companions. This series reignited my passion for fantasy my last year in grad school…

I started reading when I was four years old. I was always fascinated by books like The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, and Grimm’s fairy tales. A part of me always believed that magic was real. That part is still with me. And that part fell in love with fantasy novels.Then my father took me to see Star Wars and I *so* wanted to be Princess Leia.

Head over to Decadent Publishing and pick up a quick…

But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute, and it’s longer than any hour. That’s relativity. Arthur C. Clarke: Any…

Stirring up trouble I participated in a Twitter chat last Friday with fellow science-fiction/fantasy writers, in which it was suggested by one commenter that it would be a good idea for a writer to study science in order to better his or her writing.  I made the perhaps foolish comment that if any writer were to really study physics, they would quickly learn that most of what they have been reading and writing is impossible. This caused a bit of…

(I’m nice when I review books – Cheesy, bad movies. No such luck.) This is the movie for people who loved the concept behind Blade but thought the acting and special effects were just way too good. It was awful. The star of the movie is the writer, director, and co-producer. I’m leaving his and the names of the others involved out of this. I’m hoping they are ashamed and do not want to be associated with it in any…
