Dateline: Summer 2009
Much has happened since this was last updated. For a start, I moved to
the West Coast USA for reasons that include my health - I couldn't cope
with the damp and cold any longer - and the fact my books are published
It has taken longer than I thought to get resettled, thus the delay in
finishing the 7th novel, Shades of Gray. Now, however,
things seem to be coming together as I embark on a course to get a new
career as my day job, and to start the 9th, and probably last Sholan Alliance
novel. Don't worry, though, I will continue to write within the Sholan
Alliance, and Sholans will always be around.
Shades of Gray is finished and with my Editor at DAW
Books. They have been inundated with writers old and new and lots of quality
books - good news for them, and for us as readers, but it means Shades
will likely not be out until 2010. Note this is only a very vague estimate
of release time.
This year I attended the ConDor convention in San Diego, and have again
been invited to attend next year's event on February 26-28, 2010.
Comic-Con 2009 July 23rd to 26th in San Diego. I am attending this convention
as a Pro Writer, so if you are attending, you will find me there. Please
note that it is now saying it is Sold Out, so check their web site if
you are hoping to attend.
You'll find the fan club forum at http://thebrotherhoodofvartra.yuku.com/
It is free to join.
The site is getting an update and a bit of a face lift all over. We hope
you like it. We hope to put in a page that I can update as and when I
need to, not exactly a blog, but similar.
Domino, my dog, is still going strong. She sports a puppy cut now, though
it is more of a hack job by me than a cut, poor girl. She doesn't like
the heat here, I'm afraid, whereas I am definitely solar powered.
I have 2 new cats, Bast, a silver gray little Queen, and Ramesses, a huge
ginger Tom with pale gold swirls all over him, and a scarab beetle shape
on his head, thus his name.
Both are rescued kitties, Bast at 7 months from an animal shelter house
a couple of years ago, and Ramesses as a 6 weeks old tiny kitten with
huge kangaroo like back legs, last June from a lady who found his pregnant
semi feral mother and kept her in her garage till the kittens were born.
She took the Calico mother and her other kitten, a very shy pale beige
Queen, to a vet to find homes for them.
