Samuel Goldwyn thought that no one should write their autobiography until after they were dead. Kajol rather famously said that only self-obsessed people write autobiographies. Mia Farrow said that the only thing she enjoyed writing was her autobiography. JM Coetzee said that all writing is autobiographical. Some unknown writer said that writing an autobiography was akin to using quotes in an essay.
I'm not really sure what they meant by that.
But what about me?
Well, I was born in Chicago. I spent my childhood in rural Illinois, running in the endless cornfields. Just before I made it into puberty, my mother moved my sister and I to Minneapolis. I spent my formative angsty teen years in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.
Did you know there's more than 10,000 lakes in Minnesota? Yeah, they've only actually named 10,000 them. There are still lakes out there. Unnamed lakes. Who knows what lurks in them...
From there I joined the Army. I was a driver of an M1-A1 tank. Yeah, it was cool. I ran over trees!! Shortly after leaving the service, I met a nice young woman and we moved to Texas. We've been together ever since. We have two boys with hair like sunshine, eyes that match the sky, and love nothing more than adventure. I've worked in comic book shops, big box retail stores, major telecoms, boutique advertising companies, and as a freelance copy writer.
Oh, and I'm allergic to cats, dogs, birds, molds, grasses, and just about 87% of the planet.

In any other story, he'd be the bad guy.
Quinn is a talented sorcerer and a better con artist. But even the best get caught. On his first day out of prison, Quinn has one thing on his mind: steak dinner. Rare with blue cheese sprinkles and probably those fried onion bits on top.
What he didn't have in mind, was a member of his parole board asking him for a favor during his first good meal in years. Steal a skull from a powerful LA necromancer. A skull that might grant the owner the power to destroy the world.
Quinn assembles a team of supernatural criminals that should be able to steal the skull before lunch. Except the angelic crime boss forces Quinn to swear a magical oath to not steal the skull. And the necromancer ropes Quinn into a scheme to rob a bank.
Somehow Quinn has to help the necromancer rob a bank. Steal the skull without the necromancer noticing and not break his oath to the Angel of Los Angeles. And he has to do it while trying to find out who in the group is out to betray him. All of it leaves Quinn with just one question on his mind: why would the parole board want a skull capable of destroying the world?
Suddenly, prison doesn’t seem so bad.
Private Detective Jack Story.
A former superhero wants Jack to find her husband. A husband that is a former supervillain and disappeared chasing a Faberge egg rumored to have mystical powers.
But as Jack investigates, he uncovers the Egg’s long sinister history and the trail of bodies left in its wake. A history of sudden shifts in fortune followed by brutal deaths going back to the original owner, Nicholas II the Last Czar of Russia. Even a professional cynic like Jack has to admit that perhaps those powers aren’t just an urban legend.
After the husband turns up dead in a cheap motel, Jack finds himself in a race against time to stop the killer from getting The Czar’s Egg, an artifact that can grant anything the owner desires, even ultimate power.
The Czar’s Egg is the first book in a Private Detective series set in a world of superheroes. If you like hard boiled detectives, dames, and superheroes who try to get away with murder, you’ll love the world of Jack Story.

But when the team is betrayed by two of their own, things get out of control. The skull was one part of a set of magical artifacts needed to bring about the end of the world.
Discovering that two of his crew have turned to the dark side and plan to bring about a destructive ancient Aztec prophecy, the embattled trickster devises his own scheme to stay one step ahead in a decidedly dangerous game. But when he makes a single misplay, Quinn gets exactly what he wanted: he’s famous… and locked into a seriously dodgy deal with the Devil himself. The Devil wants Quinn to save the world, not end it.
