Happy Birthday to The Duke.

In many ways, it's appropriate his birthday is here the day after Memorial Day.

Some great men only come along once in a lifetime.

Other greats only come to us once in History.

Whether you like him or not, whether you believe in him or not, there's no denying it.

He was one of a kind.

Happy Birthday, John Wayne. :)

Dancing on a cloud...

That's honestly what I feel like doing right now! :)

I can't go into why, but it involves a dear friend, and I want to keep their business exactly what it should be: private. But it's a dear friend who has been having trouble I couldn't truly appreciate without being in their shoes...but my friend is getting better, and I just wish I could do something to improve things even further by, oh, a THOUSAND times.

My very best to you, my friend!

Again, about "HELL KNIGHT"


The setting of "HELL KNIGHT" is in the heart of a nation known by its citizens as God's Country. The United States of America. It is in the heart of this nation a secret war is about to explode between the mortal and the immortal...

At the core of the conflict is a warrior who will come from the shadows...from a realm of indescribable, unspeakable nightmares. A realm where only evil reigns. And she can make many things possible.

Her mission will be unknowable to the mortal world, but she will have mortals serve her. They will be her army...they will kill and die for her. Her enemies are equally mysterious in their purpose, but they are monstrous. Vile beyond belief.

And they are legion.

This much the world will know...

By the sharp blades of her swords, she will make blood flow like a river.

But a detective in the heart of God's Country, haunted by her past, will become obsessed to understand the truth...understand why the bloody chaos is happening.

The truth will be beyond anything she can imagine.

It is a truth that threatens to change everything.

The truth will force a mortal detective to follow a relentless, ruthless warrior from another realm into the darkest of shadows.

Both will find an unexpected, shared destiny.

But in the end, only this warrior from another realm can do everything in her unworldly power to deny the change her enemies threaten to bring.

She will become the only hope for the mortal world...in spite of one extraordinary fact.

She came from Hell.

She is the Hell Knight.

One of the biggest pains in the butt...

For me, that is, is that a writer must write about what he knows...and when he doesn't know, he learns one way or the other. That means losing time I could use to do other things. Things like writing in this blog sometimes, dammit. :(

I did a lot of research and fact-finding for "Hell Knight", my first book, and for all of the stories I'll ever write. If I hadn't accepted that long ago, I'd be an idiot. But it's different now...my next planned "Hell Knight" book has been diverted to a side track because I've found myself jazzed up with the idea of a very different story. Except this time I have to dig for historical dirt, and a lot of it.


I can't say much at the moment, except it will involve Steampunk...and a very different history from the one we know and have to live with, whether we like it or not.

There will be more to come as the weeks and months pass, though! ;)
