So I can announce that I have officially sold a story to the next Valdemar short story anthology by Mercedes Lackey! This is very exciting news. I will be part of the upcoming anthology No True Way which is scheduled to be released this upcoming December. You can see the Amazon page for the anthology here. I am very excited! This feels like a huge next step in my writing career!
This upcoming week I will be heading out to Columbus, Ohio to take part once again in the Origins Game Fair. I particularly enjoy going to this convention because it is not as frantic or as crazy as GenCon. Don't get me wrong, I love GenCon, but sometimes it is nice to take things at a slower pace and get some time in to play some games. I look forward to seeing what new games might be introduced there. It always makes my gamer geek side all giddy. And that is quite a bit of alliteration in that sentence! For those of you who might be attending, here is my preliminary schedule.
Thursday, 10 am: Crafting Memorable Characters
Thursday, 11 am: Writers' Block and You
Friday, 10 am: Medieval Combat
Friday, 11 am: Military Tactics
Friday, 12 pm: History in Fiction
Friday, 5 pm: Outfitting Your Characters
Saturday, 2 pm: Writers and the Art of Time Management
Sunday, 11 am: But it Worked Great as a Campaign!
When I am not on a panel, I will be down in the Dealer's Room selling books. Come on by and say hi!

I'm a fiction writer, a technical writer, a computer programmer, a hardcore gamer, and a professional sword swinger. I have a thirst for adventure and am a bit of an adrenaline junkie. I try to put a bit of that into all of my stories, and I do love telling stories!
