My life started on January 1st, 1986. I was the second child born in Madison, Wisconsin that year. My mom has never let me forget that there was no prize for second place.
The colder-than-Pluto winters of my hometown offered ample time to read. My favorites included Asimov's Foundation series, Le Guin's Earthsea trilogy, and the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Player's Handbook, 2nd Edition.
In 2004 I enrolled at the University of Minnesota. A dumpster full of broken calculators and semester in Tokyo later, I graduated with a degree in Mathematics and Japanese.
Fresh out of school and thirsty for adventure, I accepted a contract to teach in South Korea. Three years of Kim Jong-il's threats to plunge Seoul into a sea of flame quenched that thirst. I returned home with only a suitcase full of kimchi and a dream.
That dream was to write.
I holed up in my bedroom and wrote furiously. After aborting my first attempts at a novel, I began work on what would become The Northland Chronicles. Nine months later I released A Stranger North. I've been writing and publishing ever since.
As of 2015 I eat, sleep, and write in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win—and confront the real world he's always been so desperate to escape.
The last thing John remembers is insurgents sawing off his arm. Now he's shackled to an operating table, and, astonishingly enough, his dismembered limb is still attached.
John wants to settle the score, but first he must escape. To do so, he needs your help.
Your choices determine John's fate. Can you guide him through the dangers of MH-ZERO?
Author's Note: This story has branching paths. At the end of each section, John will ask what he should do next and offer a handful of choices.
There are two ways to navigate these choices. The easiest way is to click the links I've supplied. Alternatively, you may use your e-reader’s chapter list to skip to the appropriate section number (which you’ll see noted in parenthesis).
