Frequently Asked Questions


Is that your real name?

Yes. It is not a nom de plume or de guerre.


Is there a sixth Strange Angels book?

No, there is not. The series ended as it had to.


Will there ever be another Steelflower book?

Yes. As of November 2017, Steelflower at Sea is available in print. Steelflower in Snow became available in October 2018.


I sent you an email/Tweet/Facebook message/package and you didn’t respond!

I am very sorry I can’t respond to everything Readers send. My contact page explains why.


Where did Selene go?

Selene has been resurrected!


Glocks don’t have hammers! Also, cordite!

Several of you have caught that Glocks don’t have hammers. Yes, this is true. I thought that in a world with Weres, scurf, and hellbreed, a slightly-altered gun design wouldn’t be the hardest thing for the Reader to accept. I thought other problems were bigger. I was wrong. I wanted a hammer for dramatic effect, Jill wanted a Glock because she likes them. I struck a bargain.

I’m only glad it wasn’t with Perry.

As for cordite: Gunfire has, to me, a peculiar and acrid scent; “cordite” is an easy way for me to express that to general readership even though it’s not used as a propellant anymore. When I say it, the average person gets a sense of the scent I’m speaking of.

Where is SquirrelTerror?

The original SquirrelTerror stories are now available in book form! The adventures of my current backyard denizens can be found under the SquirrelTerror tag on my blog.


Will you read my story/play/novel/poem?

I do not have time to offer free reading or editing services. I do offer cover copy, ebook formatting, and editing services through Haggard Feathers.

Can you send me a print (or electronic) book for review?

I’m afraid I cannot. The time involved, not to mention postage, makes it impossible for me to do so with the number of requests I receive. Additionally, many past “reviewers” promptly put e-ARCs on torrenting sites, and ruined it for the legitimate folks. Where applicable, if you would like a review copy of one of my books, please contact the publisher.


Can you send me swag? (bookmarks/book flats/posters)

Once again, I cannot. I do not have any swag or promotional items to give away. Getting shirty about it will unfortunately not get you anywhere either.
