Do you find it hard to share your work?
No. Sharing my work is why I write. Taking criticism can sometimes be difficult. I try to have an attitude that looks at every comment from readers as an opportunity to learn and improve.
Do you plan to publish more books?
Absolutely. I just signed a contract for my third novel, The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky. It’s being released in May, 2014.
What else do you do to make money, other than write? It is rare today for writers to be full time…
I was fortunate to enter the software industry in its early days (think punch cards) and have had a lot of success over the years. That’s what allowed me to write full time now.
What other jobs have you had in your life?
Besides a software engineer, manager, and executive? I was in the army, drove trucks in the garment industry and was a dishwasher/potscrubber in a kitchen.
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
I’m happy with my current circumstance and whenever I get a bit itchy, my wife and I travel.

A Tragic Warrior Lost in Two Worlds…
The war in Iraq ended for Lieutenant Freddie Williams when an IED explosion left his mind and body shattered. Once he was a skilled gamer and expert in virtual warfare. Now he’s a broken warrior, emerging from a medically induced coma to discover he’s inhabiting two separate realities. The first is his waking world of pain, family trials, and remorse–and slow rehabilitation through the tender care of Becky, his physical therapist. The second is a dark fantasy realm of quests, demons, and magic that Freddie enters when he sleeps.
In his dreams he is Frederick, Prince of Stormwind, who must make sense of his horrific visions in order to save his embattled kingdom from the monstrous Horde. His only solace awaits him in the royal gardens, where the gentle words of the beautiful gardener, Rebecca, calm the storms in his soul. While in the conscious world, the severely wounded vet faces a strangely similar and equally perilous mission–a journey along a dark road haunted by demons of guilt and memory–and letting patient, loving Becky into his damaged and shuttered heart may be his only way back from Hell.
