As some of you know, I started my journey around 2013. With my game Astra Etherium: Adventures of a Space Bounty Hunter in Space. A bullet hell shmup with a story and RPG elements.

During the time of being a caregiver I had to step back from everything I was working on. My mother got dementia/alzheimer’s but she was active. She was actually driving until the point of diagnosis.

Still waiting… Continue reading My First Oni Press Rejection Letter
When Oni Press released the info for the open submissions, I was nowhere near ready. I had nothing at all done really. I wanted to get the game out first and then look into the novel part of this but it’s a great opportunity. If I can get my pitch straight and that may be… Continue reading My Graphic Novel Pitch
