Most of my career-related blogging is now on BeTheMaster.com/blog.
I’ve been writing, professionally, since about 2000, when I signed my first book contract for Microsoft .NET E-Commerce Bible. Since then I’ve written literally dozens of books, large and small, and I’ve recently moved into fiction.

In this case, I literally had a dream of this story so vivid that an entire prologue essentially wrote itself.
