Could you tell us a little bit about yourself?


I grew up in Northeastern Iowa and Northwestern Wyoming, so most of who I am was formed in Smalltown, U.S.A. I've been writing since college, have won a contest or two, but just this year decided to put my hat in the ring as far as published work.

It's a mystery, set in Denver, with multi-genre facets. It has murder, priests, exorcism, elite military, an occult drug lord, ancient warrior lineage, cool weapons, and even love.


What was the hardest part of writing your book?


Finding the time. Or, rather, making the time.

Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad, the entire Travis McGee series by John D. MacDonald,Gun, With Occasional Music by Jonthan Lethem, and everything by James Lee Burke and Hunter S. Thompson.


Briefly share with us what you do to market your book?


A lot of tweeting. I am trying to get going on LinkedIn and will be setting up a blog tour for my next book and also, hopefully, some book signings


How do you spend your time when you are not writing?


We have three Australian Shepherds and one Chihuahua who thinks she is a 40 lb. Aussie. So I spend a lot of my time with my wife, playing with our dogs and enjoying the awesome Colorado sunshine.


What are you working on next?


My next book, Dark Prairies, set in my home state of Wyoming, is due out by Christmas 2011. Then I will be writing the second Clan of MacAulay Novel, Lost.
