I have been writing for the better part of my life, at a rough estimate, some twenty-five years.  While recently, the vast majority of my writing has been in the arena of fan fiction, I do occasionally write entirely original material.  For the last two years, I have taken advantage of the National Novel Writing Month challenge (NaNoWriMo for short) to begin work on two different novels.  Actually, that's not quite accurate.

In November of 2005, I began work on a "supernatural suspense novel" (that never sounds right on the page, I don't know why) called STRANDED.  While I did make progress on the book during the month, real life derailed my writing efforts, and I have yet to pick it up again.  Although I very much want to - I still think it's a damned cool story.

In November of 2006, I began work on a science fiction trilogy (and got much farther on it, although I still did not successfully complete NaNoWriMo 2006) known as the APOCALYPSE RISING trilogy.

Graduate student Matthew Davidson jerks awake from a nightmare, and at first, thinks nothing of it.  Nightmares happen all the time - but they're not real.  But this one is... and this time, he can't wake up from it.

It starts with small things that he doesn't remember - a speeding ticket he can't remember getting, or a doctor's appointment he can't remember making.  A t-shirt his girlfriend gave him for Christmas is missing, but a book he'd thought lost turns up on his bookshelf.

Then he starts noticing the big things - like the fact that his girlfriend claims they broke up three years ago... and that his best friend of ten years never existed.

As events start slipping further and further out of his control, Matthew must reconcile his memories with the reality he finds himself trapped in, until his memories are the only thing left that hold the fabric of reality together.
