I've been a home cook (not a professional chef by any stretch of the imagination) for 20 years. I became the principal cook for our family of five when I first took up the mantle of "freelance writer" back in 2001 after layoffs cost me my dream job at Wizards of the Coast and my wonderful wife landed her dream job at Fisher-Price. We packed up our house and moved cross country — for a second time (a story for later) — and I became a stay-at-home dad.
The Trials of Baldur
My latest short story is in this wonderful anthology full of uplifting stories published through the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers to benefit the World Literacy Foundation. I join authors of novels, novelizations, and short stories set in some of the most beloved movie, TV, and game universes to tell new stories of venerated characters. My story follows the Norse god Baldur on a quest to lighten the lives of Midgard's Druids, while Loki prowls the shadows looking for a way to take the beloved god down a notch or two.
