Spiders on the Web

Over the last few months I’ve been sequestered away working on my next novel, The Rook. Now, with final edits just around the corner I’m starting to reconnect with the parts of my life I’ve lost touch with--the outdoor side (more hiking, even in the snow, yes!), the dusting part (I finally took one of those air-blaster-things to the computer and, I kid you not, I found spider webs in my Dell), and the blogging part.

After recovering from two severe computer crashes (in my two remaining non-spider webbed computers), kids with strep, hundreds of emails, and the stress of finally turning in my manuscript… two months late, I feel like I'm shedding layers and layers of life and recovering myself.

So, thanks to all of you who have left comments and stopped by on this blog over the last couple months. I’m finally back, and I’ll be posting alot more regularly once again.

Even if ths spiders don't leave my computer.

Hey, good to see you back. I just posted about your book The Pawn in my "Best Finds of 2007" post yesterday. Looking forward to the The Rook. Have a great New Year!

31 years old - have always hated reading... until I discovered fiction. The Pawn is great. Couldn't put it down, finishing it in just under 3 days. Not bad for a non-reader guy, huh?

Keep up the great work. Looking forward to The Rook and also checking out your children's books as we are expecting our 1st in March.

Well hello and welcome back! I hope all those children with strep are recovered. :) Glad to see you're enjoying life, and I hope you're able to clear away all the cobwebs in life shortly. A good hike in the snow really helps with that.

Happy New Year!

I have just discovered you. The Pawn was the best book I've read in a long time, and I've read hundreds of suspense/thriller titles. Please know you are appreciated. I will shout your name far and wide because God has truly given you a gift. Can't wait to read your other books.
In Christ,

Yay!!! You're back!! I've been reading your book "Sailing Between the Stars" while walking on a treadmill at the gym, and I love it! Looking forward to reading The Pawn.
