Geeky white male, 33.

I am a relatively new fantasy novelist; it was just a couple of years ago that my editor (at Gollancz, a division of Orion Books UK) slapped me on the butt and held me up to his production staff, proclaiming, "Look! It's a boy!" My first novel, The Lies of Locke Lamora, came out in 2006.

My second novel, Red Seas Under Red Skies, came out in the summer of 2007. I am working on the third, The Republic of Thieves, at the moment.

I'm also a volunteer firefighter (six years and counting) with the New Richmond, WI fire department; I did my training at Anoka Technical College in scenic Anoka, Minnesota. Nothing written on this journal should ever be construed as being approved or sanctioned by the NRFD.


"Major," said he, "did you ever, as you walked along the empty street upon some idle afternoon, feel the utter hunger for something to happen--something, in the splendid words of Walt Whitman: `Something pernicious and dread; something far removed from a puny and pious life; something unproved; something in a trance; something loosed from its anchorage, and driving free.' Did you ever feel that?"

--From "The Tremendous Adventures of Major Brown" by G.K. Chesterton
