Introduction Along with placing in fifteen contests and getting dozens of great reviews, my debut YA/scifi/fantasy novel, Paraworld Zero, hit the bestseller list and the category bestseller list in "Magic and Wizards." Reviewers are calling it a "Harry Potter meets Star Wars!" Learn more at

I'm also the radio show host of The Author Hour: Your Guide to Fantastic Fiction, where I interview the top fiction authors of our day like Anne Rice, Terry Pratchett, Diana Gabaldon, Meg Cabot, and Terry Brooks.

I've spoken to over five million people through radio, television, and presentations at schools, libraries, conventions, and bookstores. I currently live in Arizona with my wife, five boys, and our giant African tortoise.
