The Day of Atonement

Sebastião Raposa is only thirteen when his parents are unjustly imprisoned—never to be seen again—and he is forced to flee from Portugal, lest he too fall victim to the Inquisition. But ten years in exile only serves to whet his appetite for vengeance. Returning at last to Lisbon, in the guise of English businessman Sebastian Foxx, he is no longer a frightened boy but a dangerous man tormented by his violent impulses. Haunted by the specter of all he has lost, Foxx is determined to exorcise his demons by punishing an unforgivable enemy with unrelenting fury.

March 15th, 2015

What is going on in 2015?  Behold!

I’ll be updating more regularly come this summer, but in the meantime, here is a quick run-down of my publications for the year.  There are a few more surprises in the works, but this is everything I am physical, and legally, able to talk about at this precise moment.

Remember, for more up-to-the-minute information — plus a lot of nonsensical trivia – be sure to follow me on Twitter and Facebook.

RANDOMS   August 25th.  My big release for the year.  The first book in a science fiction series aimed at readers 10 and up.  “As fun as a barrel full of tribbles, Randoms is middle-grade space opera at its best. Scary aliens! Cat people! Exploding starships! My inner geek stood up and cheered. Kids who love sci-fi, comics, or gaming will gobble up this fast-paced story, and it will make converts out of the rest.” (Pete Hautman, author of National Book Award Winner Godless).  For the record, the adults who have read it have responded with an unprecedented enthusiasm.  Grownups who enjoyed Ready Player One by Ernest Cline or Red Shirts by John Scalzi should check it out.  Randoms
