Ten Silver Coins, writing, YA -

I had the opportunity to guest blog on writer/blogger Anna Tan's site in the lead up to the release of my new book Ten Silver Coins: The Drylings for Acchora.   Here's an excerpt:  If you’re like me, you have to pretty much hire private security to keep yourself from watching reality television, because if you start you can’t stop. Not the self-absorbed-celebrity-does nothing-significant-and-films-themselves-arguing type of reality TV.

"There is no question Kooman has his own unique style, and there are hints of influences from legendary authors like C.S. Lewis, Madeleine L’Engle and J.R.R. Tolkien that bubble gently to the surface as the...
