August 31 - September 3, 2018
DoubleTree Inn - Metrocenter.
Phoenix, AZ


Local conventions Copper Con and ConKopelli are teaming up this year. I'll be appearing there all 4 days of the event. It's a great opportunity to get some one on one chatting with some of your favorite local authors, find lovely artwork, and generally have a good time. If the idea of going to a big show freaks you out because of crowd size, LepreCon is a great way to dip your toe into a fan convention. 

I'll be doing panels, and copies of my books will be available in the dealers' room. 

Panel schedule here.

I'll be appearing at LepreCon 44. This small but tenacious SF/F con is a great opportunity to get some one on one chatting with some of your favorite local authors, find lovely artwork, and generally have a good time.

I'll be doing panels, and copies of my books will be available in the dealers' room.

This panel will discuss the types of training your heroes will need to be believable.

Phoenix Comic Con

Once again I will be taking to my home con! My event schedule will be posted as I get it. Looking forward to hanging out with old friends and meeting new ones. Current panels are as follows:

You can also come see me at my table in the Exhibitor Hall: AA1706. When I'm down there I'll have coloring pages (while supplies last), colored pencils and crayons (also while supplies last) so that we can hang out and color together. And while you're there, you can pop across the aisle to Mysterious Galaxy and buy my books if you don't already have them. 


*A note about the signings: These are group signings with other authors. A limited number of my books will be on sale down in the Exhibitor Hall at Mysterious Galaxy (AA1701-1707). I will gladly sign them for you. Hell, I'll pretty much sign anything you put in front of me save for legal documentation. So come say hi, let's chat.
