My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
My gift to write, my desire to write, my imagination, it all comes from God. Apart from Him, I am empty, I am nothing. I seek to exercise my gift and my passion thanks to the way He has created me. The glory is His. SDG.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
I hope to balance writing independent comics for many different indy companies as well as work for Marvel, where I've had a few writing projects (and have been reading for 30+ years). I also hope to join a growing community of Christian comics storytellers in producing quality, imaginative comics inspired by our love of Christ.

ClosetWorld comic progressing

Posted on March 28, 2013 at 6:59am 2 Comments

I've been away for a while, moving from NC to VA (along with twins under the age of 1).  Now settled and into my routine at home and work.  I'm still progressing on ClosetWorld, a faith-based fairy tale that got picked up by Arcana Comics and hopefully will be released later this year or early next.  I just added art from it by artist John Amor.  I'm also developing a pitch called "A Heart for al Qaeda" that's about Air Force special ops (I'm an Air Force officer in my day job).  It's…


Comic sold

Greetings everyone.  It's been a busy few months.  The biggest news is I've been successful at selling my comic, ClosetWorld, to independent publisher Arcana Comics.  It's got fantastic art by John Amor and colors by Thomas Bonvillain.  They plan to release it first digitally on comixology, then as a graphic novel sometime next year.  We're a little over half-way through the 4 issues.  Having a blast creating it along with some other new projects that I can't wait to share. 

Online comics

Greetings to all.  I'm curious if anyone out there has had experience publishing their independent comics online at, and if so, how it went.  I read a few comics from their site and I'm really impressed with their interface and the way they connect comics with reviews and fans. 

Any thoughts from those who've published with them?  Pros, cons?  Are their other sites that have worked better for self-publication? 

Thanks for sharing.

What's in a name

Posted on January 19, 2012 at 8:20pm 6 Comments

I've been mulling over possible imprint names to unite all my various independent stories under one brand name.  Would love to hear any thoughts on the various ones I have so far.  They are:

- Otherwhere

- Hangar 19 (the idea being you think you know what's in Hangar 18, but you have no idea what's next door to it in Hangar 19)

- Front Porch Entertainment

- Hyperion Entertainment (after both the epic poem by John Keats and my all-time favorite novel, Hyperion, by…

Hi ya, I know you like Christian comics so I know you'll love The Word for WORD Bible Comic(Unabridged, historically accurate graphic novel of the Bible with a high view of scripture. For ages 15+) 

To complete the first book I need your help, as I am raising funds on Kickstarter. My passion is to get God's Word in full into the hands of young believer and unbelievers and comic lovers of all ages, in the hope they will come to really know God. Please check it out at the KS page, it's going well but I still need lots of backers so I hope as a CCAS member you'll please pledge to support this project...

If you are concerned about the accuracy and faithfulness to the text please read this Blog...
