Hello Watt'ers!

After years of writing for games, web stuff, comics, and movie scripts, there was something that began to take root. Actually, it's been growing inside my head since childhood. Whispering. Waiting.

Last year, I finally realized it was time to get brave and write the thing I've always wanted to write: a children's fantasy series.

Think of classic tales like Narnia, or Potter, or Snicket...
And now imagine one set in the real world...
Something smart, and scary, and even a little sad...
With mysteries, and magic...
And lots and lots of CATS!

Beginning with ‘The Cat’s Maw’, I want to create a compelling, haunting, and inspirational children's fable – The Shadowland Saga –where readers will dive right into the mystery.

Along the way, I want to explore bits of history (settlers and pirates and Egypt, oh my!), strengthen reader bonds with their feline friends, and experience the mythology of a rich story world.

And I really, reallllllly want to make you FEEL something.
Something that opens your heart and your mind, and STAYS with you.
Something that might just nudge you see the world in a whole new way.

Thanks in advance for reading,
