I'm a father, husband, dog lover, artist, musician, designer, and in between hard knock events I occasionally have 5-10 minutes of free time to write things. 

The Hollow is my first novel, and I'm honored that it's won a few reader awards here on Wattpad. I'd appreciate if you have 5-10 minutes to read one of my chapters and tell me any feedback you may have. Thanks!
I developed a love of fantasy and sci-fi adventures from decades of reading Ursula K. Le Guin, F. Paul Wilson, Isaac Asimov, Stephen R. Donaldson, Lloyd Alexander, Roger Zelazny, William Gibson, Fritz Leiber, Gene Wolfe, and several dozen others.

Wow, I FINALLY updated the cover of The Hollow, giving it some quality artwork more deserving of the story. I think it turned out pretty well! What do you think?https://www.wattpad.com/story/2556048...
