Update on The Rise Of the Shadow Lord
I am so excited to be working on the final revision of the Rise Of The Shadow Lord. With 52 chapters outlined and 29 chapters completed, I am happy to say I have reached the 55% completed mark. I recently had the chance to make a big dent and got five chapters completed on Monday. Here is an excerpt from one of the chapters I edited which I am particularly fond of:
“High Priest Rafael accompanied by his understudy Apollo and High Priestess Idara.” The doorman announced the arrival of the Followers of the Creator. This caused all activity in the room come to a standstill. In the silence, the Followers footsteps made a resounding clink as their crystalline feet tapped against the marble floor.
This science fantasy novel has been a long time coming, but it has grown into something that I am excited to share with everyone in the near future.

The novelette Questions started out as a short story written in the spur of the moment.
I had come upon an article talking about the chemical, emotional and social reasons for kissing. I ran with the idea and wanted to create a backdrop that provided a good juxtaposition. So the short story was about a child who wanted to know why people kissed. I added three mothers for the child and left the child's gender mostly unknown. As the story progressed, you learned that this was a female humanoid child who was supposed to be emotionless and the mothers were Grays.
Later I took this short story and began to develop it into the novelette it is now. I did research on the Grays and the most common characteristic. I wondered what would hypothetically cause an alien to evolve in this manner and how could it survive?Read more
