Description Edit | History

From the Designer's Biography:

I am currently employed, more or less gainfully, as the Manager of Design for Red Storm Entertainment in Morrisville, North Carolina. I also work as the Central Clancy Writer for UbiSoft, Red Storm's parent company, which means that in some way, shape or form I get my hands on the storylines and content of most Tom Clancy-themed computer games.

I began my professional writing career in the early 90s with two chapters of the book Haunts for White Wolf's Wraith: The Oblivion. After freelancing extensively for White Wolf, I accepted the position of Developer for both Wraith and Mind's Eye Theatre. While at White Wolf, I also did development work for Vampire: The Dark Ages, Kindred of the East, Werewolf: The Wild West and Vampire: The Masquerade. My development credits include, among others, Wraith: The Oblivion 2nd Edition, The Guide to the Camarilla, Laws of the Night, and the critically acclaimed Charnel Houses of Europe: The Shoah. I also continued to write for White Wolf during this time, and produced or wrote for books including Corax, Kithbook: Sluagh, The Dragon-Blooded, Ends of Empire and many others. All told, I contributed in some fashion to nearly 130 books for White Wolf, which led to many interesting conversations due to sleep deprivation and at least one incident wherein I accidentally set my office desk on fire.

Leaving White Wolf for Red Storm in 1999, I began work in the computer game field. I have designed or otherwise contributed to several titles, including Shadow Watch, Anne McCaffrey's Freedom: First Resistance, The Sum of All Fears, and the award-winning mission packs for Ghost Recon: Desert Siege and Island Thunder. More recently, I have contributed to Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield, Far Cry, and the revitalized Might and Magic franchise, among others, as a writer.

In addition to gaming material, I also write fiction. I've published four novels, including the Trilogy of the Second Age for White Wolf's Exalted RPG. My short fiction has appeared in anthologies such as Dark Tyrants and A Fistful O' Dead Guys, and also in Stillwaters Journal. Additionally, I have written for magazines including InQuest, Green Man Review, Yes! and Lovecraft Studies. (Yes!, incidentally, is subtitled A Magazine of Positive Futures, and is not in fact the fanzine for the band that sang "Owner of a Lonely Heart". Honest.) I also write under a pseudonym for an online humor magazine, but in the interest of preserving anonymity and saving my friends and family from further embarrassment, that pen name will not be disclosed here.
