Update – “Hero Life”

It’s been a while since I mentioned the “Hero Life” project here. That’s the paranormal superhero action/adventure/drama that I’m co-writing. We have a script for “Hero Life” as a feature film. Due to comments made from several potential directors approached with the project – things akin to “Wow! This ought to be a TV series!” – a pilot script for a “Hero Life” TV series is still being written. My co-writer on this project has been hard at work on his part of that script for a little while now. Hopefully that’ll be wrapped up in the near future.

So, anyone interested in “Hero Life” now has their choice of the project as a feature-length film, or a TV pilot. Any potential directors, or producers, please get in touch with me via the “Contact” page on my website. I’ll put you in touch with my co-writer on “Hero Life”, too.

A New “Hero Life” Update

Not too long ago, I made several mentions on this blog/website regarding a feature-length film I am co-writing. The title of the project is “Hero Life”. It’s a paranormal superhero story.

Well, as the project is being shopped around to potential producers, several have replied with some variation of, “Wow. This would be a great TV series!” So, we’re exploring that option for “Hero Life”, too. We’re open to selling it as either – a feature film, or a TV series. We have a draft of a pilot for the series, but are still refining it. Still, any producers who are looking for a paranormal superhero story – be it as an on-going TV series, or a feature film – please get in touch. I’ll put you in touch with my co-writer on “Hero Life”. He’s the one handling the sales end of this project. “Hero Life” is also his core idea. My part on this project has been helping to flesh things out, and co-write the material. You can reach me easily from the “Contact” page on my site.

Nearly Finished!


From time to time lately, I’ve been posting updates concerning “Hero Life”. That’s the new screenplay I’m co-writing. For anyone who missed those posts, “Hero Life” is a live-action, feature-length project. The plot revolves around a supernatural superhero. According to the contract, the first draft of “Hero Life” is to be wrapped up by the end of this month. We’re very much on track for that. I fully expect to be turning in the final few pages of this draft of the script next week. Please keep watching this blog and website for updates. I’ll say what I can, when I can. As has been said already, I’m co-writing this one with someone else. This isn’t solely my project. Because of that, I can’t blab too much about it. What’s said publicly right now needs to be agreed upon mutually.

Once “Hero Life” is wrapped up, I have some editing work to do. And some comic book work, in order to keep on track with “Confluence” and “MoonWraith“. Then it’ll be back to a novel. That’ll be nice. I miss writing novels. Lately, most of my time has gone into comic book project, and screenplays.

Gauntlet Cover

Recently, I started doing a few posts here to promo my novels. I miss writing novels. Screenplays and comic book projects have been taking up the vast majority of my time for the past while. I look forward to a return to novels once my current screenplay project, “Hero Life”, has wrapped up. That should be very soon.

Anyway, I’ve recently done posts here concerning “Quagmire Fen” and “Quintana Roo, Yucatan“. I’m working backward, from my most recently published book to my first. The problem? Yeah, you knew there’d be one! The problem is that the four books that were published between “Gauntlet” and “Quintana Roo, Yucatan” are, for the moment, not available. Hopefully they’ll be re-edited, and re-released under a different publisher in the near future. For now, though? Those four aren’t out.

Which brings me back to “Gauntlet“. It was my third novel.

After stopping a robbery in progress, Elliott Cronholm is approached by someone wishing help him become a costumed vigilante crime-fighter. After refusing, his fiancée is attacked in their home by a stalker. In the wake of the attack, Elliott accepts the role he had been asked to play. While still learning the use of the costume and weapons he has been given, Elliott must track down and stop the first man put on the streets of the city by the same woman – a man with his own warped moral code who relishes killing the criminals he fights, a man who wishes to kill Elliott Cronholm as well, upon learning of Elliott’s new role.

Movie Update


It’s been a little while since I’ve spoken (or typed, rather!) here regarding “Hero Life”. For those of you who haven’t been paying attention, I say shame on you! But, since you’re here now, all’s well. Right? Right. “Hero Life”, for those who haven’t been paying attention, is my current project. It’s a live-action, feature-length, paranormal, superhero film. “Hero Life” is one of the things that’s taking my time away from novels. For those of you who are awaiting my next book release, I thank you for your patience. After “Hero Life” is written, I’ll be returning to one of the novels-in-progress that are sitting on my plate. Please bear with me just a little while longer.

This first draft of “Hero Life” is nearly finished. The entire film had been outlined before work even began on the script. Working from that outline, I have notes typed up to run through to the ending of the film. Contractually, “Hero Life” is to be done by the end of this month. If I can manage a couple of low-distraction days (distraction-free with a toddler in the house is impossible; I won’t even try to ask for that!) I expect “Hero Life” to be wrapped up well before the end of December.

“Hero Life” Update


As you all know by now, I’m co-writing a new live-action, feature-length screenplay. It’s called “Hero Life”. As I’ve said before about the project, for those of you who may have missed it when I posted about it here, “Hero Life” has a plot that revolves around a paranormal superhero. Contractually, the script for “Hero Life” is to be completed by the end of next month.

Currently, we’re seventy-five pages into the script. We’re building toward the climax. At this point, things are certainly on track for wrapping up this script by the end of December. Luckily for me, my co-writer will be coping with the sales aspects of this project. That frees me up to leap into the next project on my proverbial plate once “Hero Life” is wrapped up.

Working on “Hero Life” is a lot of fun, though. It’s a great story, with interesting characters. Once the film is made, there will be some very interesting visuals, too. This is a project that I think all of you will enjoy.

“Hero Life”

For those of you who missed attending the recent 1st Annual Klamath Library ComicCon, you also missed hearing the little announcement about the new screenplay I’m co-writing. I’ve been pretty much mum on that topic. I broke that silence at the ComicCon. And I’ve deliberately made everyone else wait a few days before posting this here. Why? So the rest of you who are able to do so will, maybe, turn out at future signings I appear at to avoid missing announcements I make at them! Let this be a lesson to you all!

I’m still not saying much, but will post here what I was saying at the ComicCon recently:

1) The new movie is titled “Hero Life”.

2) “Hero Life” is a feature-length script.

3) It’s meant as a live-action film.

4) The main plot revolves around a paranormal superhero.

See? I’ve said before that the new film project is something my fans and readers would expect me to be working on. For those of you who don’t know enough about me and my work, please let me explain that. A lot of my work falls into the paranormal, or supernatural genres. And I’m a huge comic book fan.

Please keep watching this site and blog. I’ll say more about “Hero Life” as I can. Much as I want to blab everything now, I won’t. I don’t want to say too much too soon. The script is expected, contractually, to be wrapped up by the end of next month. As of the writing of this post, I’m waiting to hear from my co-writer on this project. If the current batch of pages that I’ve written meets with his satisfaction, we’re just over sixty pages into the script at this point – over halfway through it.
