  • Write a Novel with Me

    I have an idea for my next book. It will be a historical novel with some supernatural elements, and probably middle grade (but that might change). It is not under contract. I haven’t written a single word. I have done no research yet. I have not mentioned it to my agent or any of my […]


    I’ve decided to embark on an unlikely new writing project. I say unlikely, because it’s not something in which I would have predicted having any interest, but nevertheless, here we are.

  • Those first pages…

    When I’m doing a book signing, or sometimes just hanging out at a social gathering, it’s not uncommon for someone to say to me, “You know, I’ve thought about writing a book.” I usually respond to this by telling the person that they should write it, but they often deflect. “I wouldn’t know how to […]

  • Island of the Sun cover reveal!

    A few weeks ago, Mr. Schu was kind enough to reveal the cover to my next novel on his site, but now I’d like to reveal it here. With much excitement, I present to you Island of the Sun, the sequel to The Arctic Code and the second book in The Dark Gravity Sequence!   Here’s the official […]

  • The Arctic Code Book Launch!

    I have in my hands a new book that I wrote. The real thing, and it’s gorgeous. I think this is my 6th book to be published, which kind of blows me away when I stop to think about it, and so far, the thrill of holding a new book that I’ve written hasn’t diminished […]
