Back in Florida 

Sorry for the long delay!

This has been a challenging year and I intend to talk more about what’s going on… But probably not until the fall.

Right now I’m helping out some friends down here in Orlando, and yes, I will explain more about that in a future post. This is the second time I have been here and really enjoy the weather, the city, and the team I am assisting. Orlando is an exciting place! 

What else is going on? Well, I have not been writing a lot this year but have been editing my previous work. Several of my novels have been published and I’ll devote some time here to talk about them over the next couple months.

However as much as I am enjoying Orlando I am looking forward to seeing my kids again. I have several fun adventures planned for them in August!

For now I’ll leave you with a pic from my last trip to Orlando…. I was going to take another today but it is a bit gloomy here this Saturday ????

Brent Returns (Briefly)

I realize it has been a long time since I’ve last posted here. I cannot really get into the details as to why yet, but my personal life has been rather messed up since January. I’m trying to focus on my kids as much as possible through a challenging time. That said, I intend to […]

Another Novel Finished

Yesterday I completed the first draft for my latest novel. No title exists yet so I’ve just been calling it the ‘Blue Bay’ novel to this point. At 158 000 words, I believe this is my longest first draft (aside from another novel that I have since discarded). I’ve been writing the novel since August […]

Story Sale: Red Means Go

Over the summer I sold my story “Red Means Go” to On Spec Magazine. I had planned to reveal this earlier but I like waiting until contracts are signed and all that, so consider this the formal announcement. This is another of my robot stories — I really enjoy writing about robots, probably in part […]

Evil Snow

We survived our first major snowfall with the only major casualty in our household being our garage door opener, so now I thought I’d give another brief update. Yes, I’m still preparing another post, which will give you more of a glimpse into some new opportunities I am considering, but it is not ready yet. […]



State of Things

Okay, I haven’t been around much. Here’s a quick update! What’s Am I Doing? I’m finishing novel #7 (8? I’m starting to forget how many I’ve written). I wanted to participate in Nanowrimo this year so I’m ALSO working on another novel at the same time. Yes, writing two novels at the same time is […]
