about the author
I’m a Brooklyn-based author, lover of science and wit, sporadic scuba diver, and once and future tango dancer. My characters live only in my head, but they’re real, and I put them through hell.

Am Writing Fantasy
I love talking about the "science" underlying the "magic" in A Wizard's Forge, and Jesper Schmidt and I had a great time on his Worldbuilding vlog, talking about the genre of science fantasy and how to fantasy worldbuild with science-based ideas.
Virtual Fantasy Con
The Virtual Fantasy Con was a Facebook Event with over 100 different authors and fantasy publishers. Several authors, bloggers, and a podcaster joined me in my booth, and transcripts of our talks can be found on my blog. I also participated in panel discussions on SciFi and Fantasy, Grimdark Fantasy, and Mythology in Fantasy.
