How did you find your way here? The ghost men should have stopped you before you got this far. Turn back! Turn back while you still... Ah, but what can I do? You've found the secret sanctum where the turquoise skulls are kept.

My novel, "The Turquoise Bones," published by Clean Reads is available here ( ). It is a young adult, sci-fi/romance set in a bronze age culture on an alien world, and is set in the same universe as my recently completed novel, "Warriors of the Hollow World" ( ).

What do I do in real life and how does it relate to my writing? I have a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois for performing the first numerical simulations of rotating black hole spacetimes (this is me, too: ). As a writer, I use my computer and physics powers to listen to true stories from nearby spacetimes.
