I tell stories about people who live in the strange world of Endeland.
I started toying with this world in 1992 and began crafting it over the summer of 1993. For the next 8 years, I tried to write about this world. Eventually, I realized that the world was too raw and incomplete. I'm obsessively fastidious with Endleland and my writing was juvenile and lacked experience. Well-formed ideas in my head rarely survived the journey through my fingers, the keyboard and onto the screen. Yet, I kept trying.
Then, on a spur from the wife, I participated in Nanowrimo in 2010. After 30 days I had about 60,000 words written. But the story wasn't over. So, I wrote through November and December. I wrote until the story was complete. I wrote The Alderman.
It took me almost a year before I returned to it for the first round of edits, then another year to actually get from that rough draft to something I could publish. I published it in 2012. Since then, I've been dedicated to telling the story of Endleland.
