Changing with the times...

Hi friends,

Due to the new Doon Series, I am attempting to simplify. Doon, co-written with Lorie Langdon, debuts 8.20.13 from BLINK (a new imprint of Zondervan/HarperCollins). 

I will be taking a break from this blog to write the next 3 Doon books and the sequel to THE HALO CHRONICLES: THE KEEPER - which is delayed due to some publishing complexities. (My apologies to you all - but hopefully I will have some great news to share on the HALO front soon!) If you'd like to contiue to follow my journey - and I'd love to have you come along - you can find me at and at
