I write science fiction and fantasy in an attempt to see the stars a few kilometers closer. I’ve tried putting a “Have Space Suit: Will Travel” ad on Kijiji, wearing a space suit for over 100 days, and shooting things with giant lasers. I graduated from the Odyssey Writing Workshop in 2016.
As I took a walk through space
I came upon the strangest place
A Comet circling a star
A nebulous cross of near and far
And who lived there except my pal
The one and only Astro HAL.

Pleo, the middle child of the Ald’erda family, has the most radical reaction to his parents’ murder. He seethes with anger toward his father for putting them in such an ostracized position, and flounders for somewhere to direct his rage. After failing to join the mob who would have him killed, he decides he’s on the wrong side, and needs to punish the hunters who think a child’s genetic make-up is cause for execution.
Much like Olivia and Voltan, Pleo also wants his family to be brought back together — but as victors over the corpses of their enemies. Deep down, Pleo seeks justice for his parents’ death, and will do anything to bring it to fruition. He rallies other children to his cause, creating a harsh camaraderie using propaganda similar to his enemies. This epic illustration by Jeff Doten perfectly captures the dark tide as Pleo forces the child soldiers to shed their youth in order to do what’s necessary.
What will be the fate of these children? Find out in Shepherds of Sparrows — now available on Amazon!
I launched “Shepherds of Sparrows” on Dec. 4, 2013, at Happy Harbor Comics. It was a BLAST.
Jay, one of the co-owners, was extremely helpful getting everything organized, set up, and just in general showing support for the whole event. It’s very well set up, with a good space for someone to present and have an audience not jammed between rows of books. There’s also a projector and speakers, which I made use of to showcase a radio broadcast from the planet Monitum. On the projector I got to share the artwork of all the fantastic artists who have contributed to the vision of the project.
So many friends came out to the launch despite the terrible weather — I got to share an evening with humans I genuinely like and care about, and it was a great feeling. Time flew by as I tried to speak to everyone, and almost forgot about the whole “signing books” part. After having a bit of frustration learning the business of writing, this pleasant night was a welcome surprise, and a great way to celebrate.
Thanks again to everyone who came out and made it such a special night. Pictures are below for your enjoyment.
