About

Who am I?

Oh boy, I have to write about myself now?  Um, let's see...  I'm a story addict and have been most of my life.  Now I write urban fantasy novels and short stories.  I write quickly but edit fairly slowly, so I average about 4 books a year, but I'm hoping to do a bit better in the future.  I'm also working on a few non-novel projects, such as the travel/photo essays I'm going to post here of my life as an expat in Japan.

What is all this supporting?

Well, aside from the usual helping me keep the lights on and feed my family, writing is a surprisingly expensive endeavor.   There's the popular image of the author, hunched over a desk all alone, painstakingly pouring words onto the page.  Well, that is part of it, but not the end of it by any stretch. Basically, I need to cover art for book covers, advertising, my internet connection, and stamps for all those postcards, among many other things that are shockingly expensive for a supposedly free and solitary career.
