Announcing Tangled Webb

Incredibly, it’s been almost six months since Dark Webb was published. Time flies, and now book two in the series is here. Thaddeus Webb is back in Tangled Webb, and unfortunately for him, life isn’t about to get any easier. Thad thinks he’s escaped from the world, but the world has other ideas and is


Dark Webb Is Out Everywhere

My most recent novel, Dark Webb, is now in general distribution. After a short period of exclusivity with Amazon, the ebook edition is available from all the major ebook platforms from today. The print edition continues to be available from all good book stores as well. On the subject of the Dark Webb series, I


Mind Over Matter

In my last post I discussed why I’m learning the COLEMAK alternative keyboard layout. Now I wanted to talk a bit about how I’m going about it. A minute to learn, a lifetime to master, goes the tagline for the popular board game Othello (or Reversi if you’re on the other side of the Atlantic).

FFF: How Different

I bring the coffees to the table, settle into the comfy chair. “How was your day?” I ask, and I’m genuinely interested.
