Life Reset Button & the Future

“Have you turned it off and on again?” — Roy, ‘The IT Crowd’ I did not know that life had a reset button but now I can tell you that God is the one who gets to push it. My life changed one night when that button was pushed. Before that moment, I was an author, […]


I was sworn to silence… but now the secret is out! When my son, Curtis, was a boy, he used to create theme parks for the rest of the family in his bedroom. Then in his teens he began performing magic professionally. As he grew to manhood he even began creating illusions for other magicians […]

Dragonlance and Blarney Stones

It was thirty-three years ago today that my wife and I arrived in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin with our then two children. Our drive had really started four days before when we loaded what little we owned out of our apartment in Logan, Utah onto a moving van and drove south to meet my parents in […]

Con Man: Quick … Take My Money!

It is an ageless […]

Relative Time Approaching the Speed of Life

Or why is this (fill in the blank) project so late? Starting about the time I was in Junior High School, I became fascinated by Einstein’s theories of Relativity. Mind you, my books on the subject were very basic and I had trouble telling the Specific Theory from the General Theory but I had a […]

Dragonlance Legacy: The Proposal

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I had uncovered the original Dragonlance Proposal. I thought I might share some of it with you, giving you a sense of our original vision for the series of what was then primarily intended to be adventure modules. It is a remarkable document in its vision of what […]

Eye of the Dragon: Recreating the Past

How does one recreate the look of a self-made adventure module over thirty years old? With great difficulty, it turns out. Over three and a half decades ago, Laura and I were just recently married and newly introduced to Dungeons & Dragons. Our enthusiasm overflowed into creativity. We wanted something more oriented toward story that […]
