About

A little about myself... I write mostly science fiction and fantasy, usually somewhere between the two. No idea what my genre would be. Wizards in space! Or something like that.  I'm a husband and a father. I try to be a teacher whenever I can be. Otherwise, I mountain bike play as much Frisbee as short Saskatchewan summer allows and game in the spare minutes I have between everything else.

Read as much as you can, write as often as you're able. Remember, writers make good books, but communities make GREAT books.

Any questions? Send me a PM, I'd probably like to know you better!

Hi All, 
      
      Got the newest revisions of 'Empire' posted. New first chapter, previous first chapter became the second chapter with some revisions. If anyone wants to make a cover for it, go nuts!
      
      I'm close to having fresh stuff out for Mirror Mirror as well. Hoping to have something up that I'm ok with over the weekend. Until then, cheers folks!
      
      John!

Finally got back to your story .. last week was a little like a whirlwind swallowed by a tornado..
      
      anyway!
      
      I like the essence of this chapter and the little bits of things we learn about Thea. Your writing style has always been very conservative about releasing character information and I think that's a huge draw to your stories. It builds suspense. 
      
      I would like to see something happen in this chapter. I know this story has a slower start and your writing style lends itself to more emotive writing, but there needs to be something that moves the story along. I think this is extra true since you've brought up some pretty serious questions: Thea's survival of a horrible crash and the mystery boy specifically. Any sane reader by now is going to be pulling their hair out wondering 'why?' 
      
      I'd suggest you give them something. Not the answer, of course, but some details or hints at the bigger story. I think that's it; I don't see the bigger story yet. I know this is a fantasy, and I have a  feeling something supernatural is going on, but there hasn't been anything shown that's other worldly.
      
      Hmm well that was a little more rambling than I'd hoped, but maybe it's helpful?
      
      Still liking the story and I like the bits you've revealed here. Good atmosphere and great character development of Thea and Kimmy. You gave  a character that we've never met and will never met a personality that resonates; you can tell why Thea misses her friend and why the guilt is outweighing the sorrow. there's some good heart in this story, no matter what else happens.

Hey all. So because of some weird twist of fate or some such, Mirror Mirror viewership has been rising. Nothing I've done, looking at the 'last updated' date, the last chapter was posted about a year ago. 
      
      Anyway, long story short, I'm going to try and get some updates going again.  I'm not going to say 'back by popular demand, but considering that this is as popular as the story has ever been, it'd be silly to keep it in hiatus. Made some good progress last night so hopefully I can have a chapter and maybe an interlude posted this week with a more regular schedule to follow. Stay tuned, Dawn's adventures will soon be continuing! I'm also going to try and get some more of Sol's story up (Empire) as time allows.
      
      Thanks for following all, see in story land!
      
      John!

Hey,
      You changed things since yesterday even! Haha I have to keep up :)
      
      I feel silly typing this, because you've obviously demonstrated your ability to write chapters but I think in the midst of editing things are getting a little muddled. So a chapter is usually ONE setting, pertaining to ONE event from ONE pov. usually you change chapters when any one of those things things. Charter moves to a new location, or a significant amount of time passes, the event is over or the POV changes. I can't help but feeling that these two chapters should be the same chapter, even with a shower intermission in the middle. It seems to be missing your signature cliff hanger as well :)
      
      I think i covered everything else in my other comment, hopefully this one posts.
      
      John!

Thanks for the comment! Really, its the first one on this story in, what? 10 months? haha. Glad you enjoyed.
      
      To be honest this story is in mothballs, but if there's enough interest I could look at getting it updated and back in action. I do really like the whole premise. Just have to figure out an ending *sigh*
