Concept Art for “The Wolfglen Legacy”

I’ve been catching myself doing more art involved with The Wolfglen Legacy than actually writing it. I’m going to make myself write more than draw, but at least I can share what’s been done so far.

Writing Process Blog Tour

Yesterday, author Robert Mullin kindly tagged me in a blog tour going by the name of The Writing Process. I got to know him over Facebook, and he has become a close friend of mine. A writer and adventurer, he is the author of Bid the Gods Arise, an excellent novel that deftly blends science fictionContinue reading “Writing Process Blog Tour”

The Joy of Writing: Robbed and Regained

Like many fantasy writers, I get a ton of inspiration from J.R.R. Tolkien. The more I read his work, the more quotable he becomes. He has left quite an impression on my work and imagination, even in the reasons I write stories. This will just be a brief instance of that procrastination known as “writingContinue reading “The Joy of Writing: Robbed and Regained”

Climb

Another weekend, another painting done. “Climb.” Acrylics on watercolor paper, 4 x 6 inches. The two figures at bottom right are Kedil Ahmlen (left) and Sathra Wolfglen (right), two characters from my books. I might find a place to put this scene. The slope climbed up and up, bordered by steep ridges that protruded likeContinue reading “Climb”

If Bob Ross Visited Jurassic Park…

The result might look something like this. “Evening Drink,” acrylic on black mat board, 8 x 10 inches. Obviously I don’t mean I can paint half as good as Ross. That would take several lifetimes and a lot more patience. It’s just the kind of style he often did in his paintings, with a dilutedContinue reading “If Bob Ross Visited Jurassic Park…”

Nature in Colorado

Well, it’s finally time to return to the things worth paying attention to. God’s creation is absolutely wonderful, and Colorado has plenty of it to offer. As terrible as the floods and fires have been, Colorado is not only home to hell and high water. There is still much beauty and fascination to be had atContinue reading “Nature in Colorado”

The Remaking: A Brief History of the Wolfglen Legacy’s Origins

I thought I could start coming back to this blog with a fresh start, and keep talking about the world for the (still in-progress) fantasy series, The Wolfglen Legacy. I’m impatient to get things off the ground at the moment, but I’ll make sure the books are worth the wait. In the meantime, here is aContinue reading “The Remaking: A Brief History of the Wolfglen Legacy’s Origins”

The Hobbit: Get Ready for Smaug to Desolate

The trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is finally here. Only question is, Why do we have to wait another six months? I can’t get to the theater fast enough for this. Radagast returns. Smaug is terrifying. Giant spiders and Beorn are finally on our doorstep. Even Legolas is back, and seemingly has a hugeContinue reading “The Hobbit: Get Ready for Smaug to Desolate”

Another feathered dinosaur ramble?! On Jurassic Park IV, Science, Plausible Doubt, etc.

Hey, guys. Just when I thought I couldn’t possibly say anything more on why fellow paleontology geeks need to loosen up on feathered dinosaurs, I had a couple of extra thoughts to contribute (or reiterate, in some cases). I don’t want to make a huge deal out of this again, except it seems others areContinue reading “Another feathered dinosaur ramble?! On Jurassic Park IV, Science, Plausible Doubt, etc.”
