It's been almost two weeks since I last posted and some of my readers might be wondering where I went. I'm kind of wondering myself. Actually, for over a week I got immersed in writing my second novel, Dead of Winter. It's another historical horror novel, only this time set in the Canadian wilderness during 1845. Don't want to give away too much but my two main characters are a homocide detective and a Jesuit priest, who is also an exorcist. Together they battle some demonic forces haunting a remote fur-trading fort. It's based on true events. Stay tuned for its release.

So anyone here been to Ontario or Montreal? Those two locations are where my mind has been much of this past year. It's interesting writing a winter tale while living in the tropics of Hawaii. I really have to use my imagination to conjur up feelings of being trapped in a blizzard. I actually started this novel a year ago when I was still living in Texas, and we do occasionally get snowy winters there, at least a day or two of snow, but nothing like Canada. Certainly no blizzards. I look forward to traveling up to Ontario and Montreal some time soon and doing research.
The other exciting project I've been working on is a collection of short stories called Chasing the Dragon. I've been writing short fiction since I was in college and have always wanted to share my stories on the world wide web. Three of my stories are now available at my fiction blog DARK LUCIDITY. Read them for free and if you like, tell me what you think. I love hearing from people who read my work.
