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.
Earth is icebound. Billions have perished. The Followers, an extremist army, plan to fix the weather and save the world - it's a plan that could destroy all life on Earth.

With the help of a veteran haunted by her own demons, he sets out across a lawless and deadly landscape to save Earth's last survivors.
Gripping, Sci-Fi action from the Author of Nanopunk."the action takes your breath away"
Almost four years have passed since Derek Moss formed the Rangers of Walden to protect the last spark of civilization from those who would see it all vanish into dust.
Now, Colonel Harnet has encroached into the borders and his actions have caused tragedy and sorrow, and an entire nation to rise to war.
Colonel Harnet slowly taking over more of the city now that there is no one to stand in his way—except for one out of control threat.
Without the air support of water bombers and other fire services, the ever present wildfires which have always plagued Northern Ontario has reared its head and now rages out of control between Long Lake and the OPP detachment on Richard Lake.
“Good Omens . . . is something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated. Lots of literary inventiveness in the plotting and chunks of very good writing and characterization. It’s a wow. It would make one hell of a movie. Or a heavenly one. Take your pick.”—Washington Post
According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.
So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.
And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .
