There were plenty of other middle schoolers it could've chosen. Six-hundred and eighty-six, if you didn't count Clifton. The Arrow of Light appeared in his closet then whisked him away to a far-off land, where a dwarf and magical bird led him to two princes. He returned their arrow that he had somehow found and went home to his normal life. But the Arrow of Light had other plans. When Clifton found out that the king locked the princes in Drofflic Tower, he knew he must return to the past to protect the future. Enlisting the help of many mythical creatures and the princes' own sister, he managed to find the reason the Arrow of Light chose him. But magic can be wrong. And history longs to be told.


What is the hardest part of writing your books?
For me, it’s the act of sitting down to write. With a full-time job, family, and kid’s activities, I struggle with getting creative in those few moments I do have to write.

What songs are most played on your Ipod?
I listen mostly to movie composers, like Graeme Revell, Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer, and John Williams.

Do you have critique partners or beta readers?
I have a few people who bounce ideas with me, and a few trusted beta readers. However, I try to find new readers for each book so they have no expectations or relationship with me that will cause them to give a “flattering” review instead of an honest one. I want my beta readers to tear my book apart so there is nothing for a reviewer to say but “Five Stars!”

What book are you reading now?
I’m currently reading several books, my I’m into Neal Schusterman’s Scythe series (I’m on book two now). His writing is incredible, and his character and world development are top notch. I would love to tell stories like him.

How did you start your writing career?
I began by submitting to local newspapers and magazines and writing freelance. I also submitted to short story anthologies and online publications and found immediate success. These all gave me the confidence to keep writing, as my work was validated by outside professionals.

Clifton Chase on Castle Rock is book two in this series, where Clifton goes back in time to help Robin Hood on an adventure. I used a lot of “Back to the Future” twists, since when he returns, it is in the 1100s (whereas the first book was in the mid-1400s), so he gets to hang out with his dwarf friends as teenagers this time around. It was super fun to write and I loved putting in all the Easter eggs!
